We Are At War

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. {2 Corinthians 10:3-6}

As the threat of terror and war come into view more and become greater everyday every day, in this country with the Muslim terrorist and their agenda of hate, We, as Christians, should all remember that we who are saved and are in the Body of Christ are, also, already at war spiritually. We are constantly competing in our minds, we battle over thoughts, feelings, and emotions. The Devil, the enemy of our souls, is constantly on the attack and often attacks us by bringing up things from our past. Things that are under the blood of Christ. He is sneaky. The many failures, regrets, wounds, the suffering, pain and all kinds of torment that we have went through in our life and all of them have the capability to drag us down into doubt, darkness and despair. Our great challenge is not to respond to these memories, of the hurts in our past life, with knowing the old man is dead and all things have became new. Our victory is and thoughts are in Christ. We have a new and better life in Jesus. That is how we respond to those thoughts and feelings of our past. It is with the mind of Christ. Remember all things are made new when we come to Him as new creations!
Remember in the Old Testament when God forbid the priests from entering His Presence if they had touched any dead thing. This is a lesson for us in our present day. We must leave the old, dead frame of mind and way of thinking behind, the ways that you used to react to things in the past – instead, enter into your prayer closet and get in touch and feel at one with your Savior! The one who died for you. The fight over past problems, in our life, is won when we let Jesus take control over the meaning and purpose of our lives. With Jesus in our hearts and minds, everything in our past is now under His authority. So let go and let God go! With Him in charge of our life we are overcomers.
