The battle ground is of our mind is under constant attack. Every day we are bombarded with ideologies that sound good and seem to make sense but are not of God. Don’t get fooled by what the world has to offer. It never satisfies and will always bring bondage.
We are to line everything up against the Word of God like the Bereans in Acts 17:11 “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” We need to be discerning when we receive a teaching or message. The enemy is called the Father of Lies and the Deceiver of the brethren for good reason. The ways of the world are often clothed in right sounding rhetoric.
Where does power and authority come from? It is given by God for Jesus said that “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” Mt. 28:18. Any one that claims to have a different way to gain power is speaking nonsense. The world would like you to think that the Bible is irrelevant and outdated. The truth is the Bible is all the truth you will ever need in life. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Tim 3:16-17.
Be captivated by God’s Word and don’t let the world capture you!
