While Christians are called to live an overcoming life of victory and goodness, most haven’t obtained their rightful inheritance. Even as hearts long for the light, darkness quietly encroaches our families and churches. We desperately want to move forward, but the way out can seem complicated. Part of what we’re dealing with is the subtle deception of the enemy. He continually endeavors to bring confusion and anxiety upon creation. It seems that Satan’s most treacherous tactic in all of this is to encumber the minds of Christians. Deceptive spirit come and cast their shadow upon the imagination. Temptations are continually being amplified along with jealousies, envy, and fear.
Sadly sickness, poverty, and broken relationships become the most common outcome of this terrible confusion. This doesn’t have to be! Scripture declares, “Throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.” -Ephesians 4:22-23
The Lord is inviting each of us to renews our attitudes and our minds. We’re being empowered to cast off the darkness and truly envision the world as God intended it. Satan and his minions must no longer inhibit us to separate us from our inheritance. Through the work of the Holy Spirit we can step into our true identity and experience the abundant blessings of the kingdom.
It is time to let the Spirt renew your thoughts...
