We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
This winters weather has been unique to say the least. We are experiencing weather fronts that are bringing snow every other day, with just enough snow to have to shovel it. To say the least it’s annoying people and people are feeling discouraged and depressed.
Just like that weather front, many people have this same weather effect operating in their lives. Because of circumstances or other people they have a gray cold outlook on life. Satan uses these things to manipulate, control and keep minds focused on the negative. Even blessings and the positive things in life are overridden by these thoughts.
In John 10:10 Jesus tells us “The thief comes only to steal kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” How often do we forget these words and allow the thief to kill and destroy our joy of life. When we seek a relationship with Christ and place our trust in Him we become empowered to overcome. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 reminds us that we have the divine power to demolish strongholds, arguments and thoughts that come against what we know God is trying to teach us. And our minds are being renewed.
If you are finding that you are experiencing the cold gray outlook from these weather fronts, spend some time in the Scriptures and with God, you will be amazed at the difference it will make in your life.
