Six Ways To Respond In this Uncertain Time: Part 2, CONTROL YOUR MINDS

Oswald Sanders once said: “Your mind is the greatest gift God has given you, and it ought to be devoted entirely to Him.” 2 Corinthians 10:5 says. “We are to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” The human imagination is a powerful force. It can create a beautiful vision of a desirable future, or it can conjure up the worst-case scenario. These dark products of the imagination can put us in the grip of fear-a place God would never have us go. The power that banishes fear is a sound mind, and we maintain a sound mind by bringing every thought into captivity. Paul was being attacked by the Corinthians. He dealt with it by taking every thought into control in his mind. “Does this thought have any basis in reality?” He asked himself. Our mind is one of the greatest assets of our faith. Do you know what 2 Timothy 1:7 says that God has given us? Take a look. “He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind.” If you are feeling anxious, go to the Word of God and focus on God’s commitment to His people.
