In my unofficial observation and survey of the area where I live, I have found out that hospitals, doctors’ offices, clinics, etc. are everywhere. They’re practically within walking distance from anywhere you live! Why is that, I asked myself. And my answer is that this country is inundated with sickness and disease, running rampant and attacking everywhere it can. Even if you’re not sure there’s something wrong with you, just watch the TV commercials! The side effects could describe almost everyone, no matter whether you’re sick or well. This is not good.
The best thing to do is to mute the sound when the commercials come on because they’re just a subtle way for the devil to send doubt and unbelief to your door. If you listen long enough, you’ll convince yourself that you have a problem and then the devil really has a grip on you. Don’t give him access. It’s really important what you let into yourself via sight and hearing.
You can’t totally control everything around you but you can control what gets in you. Set a guard over your eye and ear gates and filter what you let in. It could save your life!
Proverbs 4:20-23 (KJV) 20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
If we keep God’s Word in our hearts, it will eventually displace the negative lies of the devil.
