TODAY IS TWO CHOICES WITHIN ME
For those of you who read part one thank you for returning for part two. And for all the new comers, I welcome you. By all means in your spare time please read part one, so you'll understand the entirety of the two choices I'm writing about. Hopefully I'll see you all on tomorrow there is a part 3, bare with me, it's equally as good as part one and part two. What can I say, I'm just honoring God by being obedient, he told me to split it up in three parts, and I must obey.
On yesterday we discussed the two meanings of Christ-Conscious and Ego-Enemy. I'll briefly touch bases on the both. This Christ-Conscious I'm writing about is the essence of “God” residing in our heart. Its that calming peaceful, truthful, honest, delicately voice pleading with our conscious to become aware with reason, logic, and rational. Now on the other hand, the Ego-Enemy is the soul of me "self” my mind, feelings, emotions, will. The Enemy “foe” my flesh urgently encouraging the ego to negatively respond with acts of inconsiderate irrational hatred, evilness, and wickedness.
It’s dim-witted to think that apart from God we are capable of containing, and dictating such power over the two wars of choice within us. Please understand, this power of choice is only limited, when we allow the Ego-Enemy to reject the Christ-Conscious. We must always be mindful that the Ego-Enemy is a foe of God, and it will never, ever accept righteousness above its own hierarchy system of non-righteousness. God’s biblical truth of choice is “never” relevant to the Ego-Enemy which enforces a emotional life of “making stupid choices over and over again. Tragically there are many who make a mockery out of their own choice by adhering to every beck and call, and whim of pleasures that their Ego-Enemy so desire.
My friends, we could become so much more in this world if we’ll learn how to activate our Christ-Conscious instead of deactivating it by choosing to give into the Ego-enemy. Remember on yesterday how we discussed how choice can be violently opposed, however even then we are not choice-less. We can choose to be enslaved to what is occurring or be free in that which is occurring. The apostle Paul brought much meaning to "all" enslavement in the most simplest form in Acts 26:29. He stated that it is impossible for the word of God (which is my Christ-Conscious) to be bound. When we live for Christ the gospel will freely circulate from us, and it can never be enslaved even if so happens your body maybe.
The truth of this matter is that most of us don't want to comply to Christ-Conscious, regardless of how much we hurl "help me God!" All in all this Christ-conscious I’m writing about is so powerful to dominate when it is applied that we need only to recognize its request to align with its righteousness.
Point in case, many, many years ago God "instantly" set me free from the enslavement of gambling. Yes, I "Susie L Hill" was addicted to playing cards for money. Every week-end, as soon as the dusk beset upon the earth I would meet up with a group of older and younger friends to play poker or tunk “mostly poker” until the dawn of the morning, sometimes pass the dawn. Also I used to go to casino, however it was never really my forte, but playing cards for money was my choice of habit. If winning money wasn't the objective I wouldn't dare to waste my time.
Have you ever heard of that song “To Him I owe it all.” I take this song literally. “To my God I owe it all.” without Him I would still yet, be enslaved to making the stupid "choice" to gamble this precious life away, in which He liberally allowed me to partake of. I shall forever remember the day when I had to make the Christ-Conscious to deny the Ego-Enemy access to ever enslave me again to gambling. I was a mess (hot mess). I was crying and weeping with great remorse, because the Ego-Enemy didn't want me to be free. I mean really it came up with every excuse why I shouldn't stop. First of all it told me how one day soon I was going to really win big. Funnily after I rejected that lie, it told me how I shouldn't have to work and not play, after I rejected that lie as well. It told me that I could stop if I really wanted to. Lastly it told me that I wasn't hurting anyone, even though I had disconnection notices on everything in my home.
Thank you Jesus! If it hadn't been for him wooing me with his love, pleading with me to stop gambling, showing me in dreams/visions how gambling was my demise. I wouldn't be known to you all as Susie Hill the Christian, the good mother/grandmother, the loyal friend, the Christian writer, the published author. No, I would be only known as Susie Hill the stupid gambler, the addicted gambler, and every other definition that applies to those that are enslaved to addictions.Get the point!
As God began to disillusion me “after I was at my wits end in despair and torment.” The first thing God done was confirmed to me his love for me, by reassuring me that he would take care of all the gambling problems that I had created (I had created many). Isn't that something, we disown him by living for the Ego-Enemy then when were at the bottom of the barrel of despair He unconditionally pulls us up and out of the barrel, and destroys the barrel as well. Wow! God has always been faithful in every aspect of his promise to me. As time went by He explained to me the five levels of enslavement that kept me in enslaved. 1. Fear 2. Shame, 3. Pain 4. loneliness 5. obligation. Lets pause for a moment. Now ask yourself which one (could be all five) that has, or still is enslaving you?
Please understand, I’m not ignorant of enemy (Satan) devices concerning choice. I know all to well how he easily snicks in to employ our Ego-Enemy to find a comfortable place (addiction) to be enslaved in, that is why we must be proactive with our choice. Even now after many, many years the enemy will interject one of those thoughts of how the good ole days was when I was gambling. I don't give it any room of thought, I immediately reject it with another thought of praising God for being free.
Be reminded, just because we are now Christ-Conscious doesn't mean that our Ego-Enemy is going to forget that it once was the hierarchy system that we obliged to. If you want to continue on being free you must be proactive and destroy the Ego-Enemy that pleads with you to allow it to rule. I find it to be tragic when folk think that they are now saved by grace, and they don't need to usurp over the hierarchy system that they were once enslaved to. Too many of us just sit and become complacent with evil thoughts and actions, and call it humor, when in fact it is what it is enslavement to your Ego-Enemy.
Did you know that the bible admonishes us to be proactive in our choic? There are many scriptures explaining in detail how folk are enslaved. One of my favorites is Matthew 12:29. "Or think about this. How can you enter a strong man's house and just take what the man owns? You must first tie him up. Then you can rob his house.” ( Matthew 12: 29 ). Who do you suppose the strong man is? Gods created beings. How do you suppose we become bound? The choices we make. Also He has told us to destroy everything that keeps us from the truth. “ I destroy every every claim and every reason that keeps people from knowing God. I keep every thought under control in order to make it obey Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5). Who do you think is trying to keep you addicted? Who do we think is trying to plunder you? Who do we think is suggesting evil thoughts to you? It is the enemy (Satan) enslaving folk to do his evil bidding with their "own" choice. Its time for me to make the "choice" to end part two, I expect to see you all on tomorrow for part three.
