ღ Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8 ♡
Coldness of heart..
Diminish your passion..
Lacks enthusiasm from things you used to love..
Leads to sluggishness and carelessness..
Coldness of heart can bring destruction and lead us to wrong decisions. As the Word of God reminds us:
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour ~ 1 Peter 5:8
We are in a battle, and the fancy unworthy wealth of this world often distract us from what really matters while we’re here.
If we are not careful, we can be easily deceived, even by our own self. Seemed to be all is well, we tend to lose a little bit and be relaxed. Thought that things are going accordingly, yet unconsciously in the midst of our loosening moment, there the devil strikes.
As soldiers of Christ we are made to be prepared for every struggle and battle in our lives. We are to be always equipped by God’s Word, letting no one take us over but the Lord Jesus Christ.
Let no man deceive you by any means ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:3a
“The reason why many failed in battle is because they wait until the hour of battle. The reason why others succeed is because they have gained their victory on their knees long before the battle came. Anticipate your battles; fight them on your knees before temptation comes, and you will always have victory.”
-R. A. Torrey
When coldness strikes get your bible, kneel and pray, for it is only through God’s Word where we can win every fight! 😉
ღ There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13
