So a grandfather was sitting by the campfire with his grandson and told him this story. He said there once was two Wolves. Both wanted to be the leader of the pack. Both were strong and brave. But one was cruel and heartless and only cared about himself and the Other was Kind and protective and wanted all the wolves in his pack to be safe and cared for. One day they decided to have a fight to see which one would win the title of Leader because there could be only one. They would fight til the death. The grandfather told him that in each of us there is a fight going on for leadership. A fight between good and evil and we have to decide who will win. The little boy asked his Grandpa how do we decide? The grandpas says…. IT DEPENDS ON WHICH ONE YOU FEED!
It is so easy to allow fear to creep into our lives and steal everything from us. It seems like everything will be going great and the next moment we are knocked down and feeling frail and worthless again.
I have come to realize that the more I trust my heavenly father, the more fear is defeated in my heart and in my mind. If I focus on God more than an unexpected circumstance, then it is God who will be biggest in my heart and mind, and peace will be my outcome.
What are we feeding our Fear or our Faith? Stay focused today and let God become Bigger than everything else.
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Ephesians 4:22-24, 29 NIV
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12:2 NIV
