WELCOME TO INSPIRATION NATION
WHERE WE WILL REVIEW one chapter of JOYCE MEYER’s book, “The Battlefield of the Mind” each day during APRIL!
THE CLIFF NOTES from today’s reading: Chapter 25: “I’m going to do it my way or not at all.”
The Israelites displayed much stubborness and rebellion during their years in the wilderness. That is precisely what caused them to die out there. They just would not do what God told them to do! They would cry out to God to get them out of trouble when they got in to a mess. They would even respond to His instructions with obedience – until circumstances improved. Then, repeatedly, they would go right back into rebellion!!
Truth be told, if we are not walking in wisdom,
we will spend our own lives doing the EXACT same thing!
1: GOD demands that we Learn to Give Up our Own Way
Stubborn can be defined as obstinate; difficult to handle or work with, and “rebellious” as resisting control; resisting correction, unruly; refusing to follow ordinary guidelines! That is us sometimes, especially in our weight loss walk / journey!!
We must give up our stubborn ways and be pliable and modable in HIS hands. As long as we are stubborn, He can’t change or use us!
2: GOD WANTS OBEDIENCE
Our choice to obey or not obey has far reaching implications. Just thinking of how your life could be better and changed if you just obey. Just think now, of how you can ALSO help shape and change the lives of your children, your community, your family if you just obey? Your decision to change and become a better version of yourself, is not just about YOU!
3: THE BATTLEFIELD OF THE MIND, THE FINAL CHAPTER!
It is on the ground of the mind that you will either win or lose the war that Satan has launched. It is our most heartfelt prayer that this book and the series of posts we’ve created to help review / read it, will assist you in casting down imaginations and every high and lofty thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity, into obedience to JESUS CHRIST!
Thank you for taking this journey with us diva!

While I have worked in corporate America as a certified senior project / program / portfolio manager for Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft, Procter & Gamble & IBM, my passion is service. It has always been my desire to live a life of service to others; which I took every opportunity to explore as an active member of many of my church’s ministries and of my public service sorority, Delta Sigma Theta, Inc.
Well, now I am over the top excited to have the opportunity to serve divas through my very own ministry, Fit, Fyne & Fabulous.
