The Advantage

The transformation process feels a lot like waging war. The mind is a battlefield where thoughts and ideas wrestle for dominance. We’re still influenced by the sin and hopelessness that existed before we knew Jesus. But when God’s truth and His love permeates deep within our hearts, change happens.

Ready to make war on the old influences in your mind? Practice choosing God’s best and God’s heart instead of believing lies that bring condemnation and shame. Insist in your heart that you belong to God, that He is mighty to save and that grace abounds in Him. In your heart, set apart Jesus as Lord. As you take hold of God’s greatness, you gain the advantage in this ongoing war.

You don’t have to do this alone. Ephesians 3:17-19 says, “And I (Paul) pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”
