Get Understanding!

Your temptation is linked to what you think on.  Pursue the Truth and your understanding will increase and you will cease being tempted.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 4:

6 Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell Him every detail of your life, 7 then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ. 8 So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always.

If you fully focus on The Word rather than the world, temptation has no hook into you.  The world will tempt you with various aspects of unrighteous in order to get you to dwell on unrighteousness to the point of temptation.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 11:

13These heroes all died still clinging to their faith, not even receiving all that had been promised them. But they saw beyond the horizon the fulfillment of their promises and gladly embraced it from afar. They all lived their lives on earth as those who belonged to another realm. 

14For clearly, those who live this way are longing for the appearing of a Heavenly city.  15And if their hearts were still remembering what they left behind, they would have found an opportunity to go back. 16But they couldn’t turn back for their hearts were fixed on what was far greater, that is, the Heavenly realm!  So because of this God is not ashamed in any way to be called their God, for He has prepared a Heavenly city for them.

We must not look back on the past but forge ahead toward the Heavenly city.  Jesus wiped away our past so let us not dredge it up anymore.  The adversary wants to remind us of our past failings but we must rebuke him and keep our minds focused on the promises in The Word.

Once again, meditate on The Word and renew your mind daily.

Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 4:

24 Then Jesus said to them, “Be diligent to understand the meaning behind everything you hear, for as you do, more understanding will be given to you. And according to the depth of your longing to understand, much more will be added to you. 25 For those who listen with open hearts will receive more revelation. But those who don’t listen with open hearts will lose what little they think they have!”

It is vitally important that we heed these Words Jesus spoke.  The key to understanding is being diligent to ponder and meditate on The Word you read and hear.  As I heed His instructions, I get greater clarity in all areas.  I am not interested in man’s opinions for men have an inherent tendency to speak what they believe even though it is not supported by the Truth.  I would simply like to hear the Truth and only Our Heavenly Father has all Truth.
