🔴 The Enemy of the Mind

Reconciliation is the end of alienation caused by the fall between God and humanity. (Colossians 1:20)
If we learn to yield to God’s way and accept His truth, our lives will serve as beneficial seeds. As we continue to read the Apostle Paul’s letter, we can give thanks and praise to God for sending His Son to redeem His children.
Are you ready to stop repeating the same thought cycles?
When the spiritual attacks increase because of your revealed treasure, how will you react?
Paul’s words encourage and remind us of God’s power and His abundant love for His people.
While we were still sinners, alienated by our wickedness, Jesus reconciled us. (Colossians 1:21)
We can change our approach when we face challenges, whether through our work or in our growth. Remember, God is fully present in Christ Jesus, which means we can follow the example of our Savior as He walked this earth. (Colossians 1:19)
Being united in love with our brothers and sisters knits together the body of Christ. It is such a beautiful tapestry to behold when we stand back and see the wholeness of God exemplified through His servants. Each one of us has a responsibility to honor the lives we have and practice faithfulness.
As we unite, the full riches of complete understanding are revealed through Christ. (Colossians 2:2)
I hope you are encouraged to view life as a precious gift from our Sovereign Lord. Exercise patience, gentleness, and humility as often as possible. We have received the wisdom of God; let’s use it to bring our minds under divine order.
Lord, help us put down our worldly survival devices and pick up your Word, a mighty sword. Teach us to think more like You and behave with an eternal vision. Restore us so that we may reflect the grace and mercy we receive from your everlasting love. Be with us, Lord. In Your name, I pray Amen.
