The Battle Within

The journey to truth

And the truth shall set us free
And the truth shall set us free

Do you have a Battle going on?

Who out there can say that everyday they aren't reminded of what they are doing wrong? There's that little voice inside you struggling with doing the right things. Sometimes it's a big voice demanding us to make things right. What do you think that is? What is driving us to betterment? Have you ever really wondered?

Is this some kind of force leading us to the truth. To making our paths straight. Who's really in charge? Who's working on us to better us, to reach our full potential. To stop us from doing the things we are not supposed to do. Who's speaking to our minds and hearts and never let's up?

We can't control it-so we try. We dwell on it, desifer it, try to come to terms with it, run it over and over in our minds and the truth is still whaling no matter what. The truth is in us and wants to set us free.

We will always be effected by what is wrong. We can't escape it. It won't let us. We will be effected by it until we get it right. This is a fact. We will suffer until we except and live out the truth/put it into action. Mental suffering is the result of wrongs. Wrongs to ourselves and others. Choosing a path that is destructive and not benificial. And we will suffer till we get it right.

There are many ways of avoiding the truth when the truth will actually set us free. Avoiding the truth comes in many forms and are meant to destroy. Pride is a major roadblock. The avoidance of the truth has cost lives, relationships and our very well being. Dealing and excepting the truth brings hope, peace, joy, love, happiness and contentment.

Many have reverted to drugs and alchol to avoid the truth. They have chosen to cover it up, mask it instead of dealing with it. The damage goes beyond us and spill over into the lives of the very ones we love and begins infecting their lives as well. A disease that manifests and grows to huge proportions and hurts everyone it comes into contact with.

Dealing with the truth is less painful and destructive whether we realize it or not. There are more rewards, benefits. It's a far better more benificial outcome and end result.

Will you turn your life around today? Will you listen to him? He is speaking to you loud and clear! Let him show you the way, the truth and the life. Get in agreement with him instead of your sinful nature. Let him set you free from deception! Let go of your stubborness and resistance and give hope to yourself and others around you. Life can be worth living.

You are being spoken to, You are being called. There is a force that is bigger than all of us speaking to each and every one of us RIGHT NOW! Are you listening??? Jesus is calling and he wants to be your guide, your strength and your refuge in your storms because he wants "YOU" to HAVE IT ALL!!!!!

AMEN!!! This hub sounds like one who is saved and struggling with letting go of the sinful nature. One cannot be convicted of sin unless the Spirit of God is doing it. If one has repented of sin and turned away from and is constantly reminded of shameful things, that is not of God, for Satan is our Accuser! Obedience to God's Word brings life; rebellion and disobedience harm us, which is Satan's domain. May we all trust the Lord with our struggles and know He is able and willing to deliver us from evil and bring us into a loving, glorious life in Him! AMEN!!!

Confess your faults one to another, that ye may be healed:) James 5:16 This verse has become, so real to me! I found that when things surface that are burried, it is time to deal with them. At times it is more than we can handle on our own! So yes, when we cry out to God...He is more than willing to take our burden away. As you said to set us free! Jesus did pay it all! Great Hub-Page!

The Battle Within exists only because the enemy has observed a potential weakness. Don't give him one. He will use those close to get to you. Someone who perhaps is not saved or is in turmoil themselves. It has to be someone the enemy knows you care a great deal for to exploit the opportunity.

When a friend is under attack, you end up with two groups:

1) Group A (who sits there and incessantly babbles about forgiveness) immediately launches a Campaign of Judgement on the person under attack as if they have all the right answers. All the talk of being your brother's keeper goes right out the window.

2) Group B gets immediately behind and to the left, front and right of the person and becomes "spiritual bodyarmor" against the enemy. Ever notice how the supposed wall of brother/sisterhood vanishes when one is in trouble? Quite often, they are ostracized and cast out. That was the enemy's intention. Leave the wounded lamb out in the open for easy attack. Onward Christian Cowards.

I am still learning how to listen to the sweet whisper of God. It is not always easy because the battle is between my temptations and doing what is right. I can say that I always do what is right, but that would be an untruth. The truth of the matter is I am learning that following my temptations may lead me to harsh consequences or even death but there is life in following the word of Jesus. Peace and Blessings

There is a difference between "guilt" and "conviction". Both can feel bad but one is from God and one is from the enemy. Satan will bring up your past to try to destroy your future. He will bring up struggles, battles won, issues settled, sins already forgiven. Then he will try to use those things to cast doubt, cause fear, cause shame, and distract from God. God uses the small still voice that Christians learn to listen to, to convict us of sin and to correct our path. He disciplines His people and causes them to learn right from wrong. The devil lies about real issues of sin so that we will be discouraged and not try to obey God's voice. He uses lies to distort truth into phantom issues and issues of self worth and self image. He paralyzes with fear or shame while the Lord disciplines and shepherds with love. I love you sister. Thank you for adopting me because I love you so much.

Thank you all for your comments! Yes conviction and guilt are the opposite of one another and we as children of God know or should know the differance. We know when God is speaking and we know the differance between right and wrong.

Speaking of someone being saved and struggling with sin is a battle we all face. I don't think there is a child of God that isn't struggling with sin. God will give us the strength to overcome all obsticals if we turn to him. Satan will use many to distract us from the truth and God will give us the mind to see it. Set your minds on Christ, hold steadfast and certain and he will see you through. Straight to the Kingdom! Amen! I love you all!!!

TimeHealsAll, our intuition and instinct guides us to which direction in life we go. And if we are intuned with ourselves and the universe, most likely we are to receive the right vibrations. I believe we are one and all connected together in this big universe. Great hubs, very powerful thought. More power.

Thank you Teresa! I believe God instills in us everything we need to better ourselves and help us grow spiritually. Things develop under trial. God is working constantly in us to develop us to be more and more like him, in his likeness. Blessings to you for your wisdom!!!

Psa 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

He is the foundation to hang onto.
