Isaiah 1:1-2:22 / 2 Corinthians 10:1-18 / Psalm 52:1-9 / Proverbs 22:26-27

Standout verse:
2 Corinthians 10:3-5“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God – bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.”

Our greatest foe – the enemy of our souls – is unseen.  The battlefield we fight on isn’t the soil of a far away country, it is right in our very own minds.  God gives us His rock solid, unwavering TRUTH so that no matter what “tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of God” (a fancy way of saying, “the lies of the enemy that he uses to try and confuse us, separate us, and destroy our faith in God) we will be able to stand steadfastly, be unmoved and walk in VICTORY!!

We are not at the mercy of the world we live in, the temptations that surround us, or the mental battles that try to cripple us and steal our hope.  IF GOD SAYS, WE CAN BRING EVERY THOUGHT CAPTIVE AND WALK IN HIS TRUTH, WE BETTER BELIEVE WE CAN!  There is NO TEMPTATION, NO LIE, NO CONFUSION that can’t be taken out decisively with the life-giving, hope-filled truth of our awesome GOD!
