9 That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.
Today’s Inspiration: There is nothing new under the sun. What is done is what will be done, that which has been is what will be. Ecclesiastes 1:9. The eye is not satisfied with seeing nor the ear filled with hearing. Verse 8. Whatever you see as new has already been in ancient times. Verse 10. This is why He said in the Book of Revelation 21.5 He makes all things new and not He makes new things. What a wisdom God had that men cannot fathom! Who can compare with Him?
Reading the Book of Ecclesiastes you see a man who had all the wealth in the world and pleasures of life yet find emptiness in the soul when he said everything was meaningless in life. Life’s experiences especially the negative ones affects a person’s physical, emotional and spiritual health. They usually affect relationships in a major way- relationships with God, self and others. People tend to blame themselves oir their difficulties even those caused by offenders. This attitude create the garbage in our soul. As long as the garbage is there the rats (Demons) will come. Hence the hurtful event is not so much a problem as the reaction to the event that needs to be dealt with, failing which years later such negative attitudes can cause illness in any or all areas of a person’s life. This opens the door for demonic harassment and invasion.
Just as our body has excretory system, God also provides spiritual and emotional excretory system. For instance if you grow up in anger reactions, you will continue with life being provoked with anger. Overtime it flares up to heart attacks or stroke. Keeping anger is indeed a disastrous issue. Ephesians 4:26-27, 31-32. So we have to give up our right to these emotions in order to be free. As God commands that we should never take revenge. God will repay. Romans 12:19.
Negative self talk should also be avoided to maintain our healing of reactions. The enemy’s fiercest attacks are in the area of self image. Humans have a propensity to internalise and replay the tapes in their minds of the negative things heard from others. There is tendency of us internalizing One critical remark rather than a string of compliments. This caused moderate to severe emotional illness.
Philippians 4:8, Romans 12:2 not to conform with the world the devil but be transformed by the renewal of the mind. This renewal is made difficult if you do not get rid of emotional garbage. This is why many people are sick or diseased today and we have to feed doctors with our hard cash accumulated out of our youthful labour. Stress is another garbage we have to address. 80 percent of all diseases are due to emotional garbage of fear, anxiety and stress. Once you have emotional health, you will have physical health. Apostle John caught this by writing 3 John 2 As the soul prosper so shall your health and everything prosper.
