GOD’S REMINDER: “Use your powerful tools that I have supplied to you for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against My truth, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of a life shaped by Me” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
NOTE TO SELF: If you think your voice doesn’t matter, read God’s Reminder again. It matters!
God has given us everything we need to fight the darkness of this world and win souls for Christ. What are our tools God has given us?
- An intimate relationship with Him where we can talk to Him and He listens and responds
- Prayer and fasting
- His Word, full of promises and instructions on how to fight the good fight for His cause and purpose
- The cross and blood of Jesus
- Forgiveness and mercy for when we make mistakes
- A bright light that shines for all to see
- The truth and reality of Christ’s existence and sacrifice
- The Holy Spirit to guide and lead us
While we have these tools, don’t be so quick to overlook the second part of this scripture where God tells us to consume our thoughts, emotions and impulses with a life that is shaped by Jesus. THAT is the ultimate power in being victorious.
So when you face “warped philosophies,” use the power you were given to smash them!
