I am pretty sure, like me, you feel bombarded with what is going on all around us- the news of CoVid 19, the collapse of the stock market, job loss, and fears for our future. How can we as God’s people keep ourselves in peace during times like these?
Don’t you just hate when you lose something? Whether it’s your keys, an article of clothing, or a purse or wallet, it can become an all-day mission to find something you know you have misplaced.
In 2 Corinthians 10: 5 we are told to take our thoughts captive and to make them obedient to Christ.
One of the definitions that I like about ‘captive’ is to keep our thoughts enslaved. That means Christ is the owner of our minds and all our judgments and every thought is a slave to Him and must pass by what His Word says.
One of the most important things the enemy is after in our lives is our true identity as daughters of the King. In Matthew 3 we find Jesus coming to the Jordan River to be baptized by John. After the Holy Spirit descended on Jesus the voice of His Father said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased.” God made it very apparent that
Jesus was His Son in whom He took great delight in. This statement from God the Father also established Jesus’ true identity that every teaching, miracle, and ministry would later flow out of.
