Why We Can’t Find Peace of Mind and What to Do About It

19 Jul

Christians, we must not fool ourselves. We are currently at – and until we see Christ or He returns, we will continue to be at – war. But where is this war? It’s in our thoughts, our minds.

Jon Bloom explains in this blogpost exactly why it is so important that we continue to wage war against the lies that the Enemy would want us to believe. Here is a short excerpt from it:

Where is the battle raging? Where your thoughts are. What are the strongholds that spiritually imprison people? Arguments and opinions.

And arguments are not merely strongholds, they are weapons of mass destruction. Adam and Eve (and all of us with them) fell because of an argument. They believed the serpent’s argument and stopped believing God.

That is the deadly essence of sin: not believing God. To not believe God is to ally with Satan, whom Jesus said is “a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth… for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44).
