Let’s Give Ourselves To The Really Real

Years ago I came to the decided persuasion that the crucial aspect of a victorious journey with Christ is to be found in a very conscious, tenacious and tangible territorial battle in the spirit and in the mind. It is warfare in the unseen realm over what controls the thoughts of God’s people. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Romans 12:1-2) What ever controls the thoughts of the heart controls the words of the mouth. (Proverbs 4:23; 23:7; Matthew 12:34) What ever controls the words of the mouths controls the course of lives. (James 3:6) It is in all actuality a question of ownership (Proverbs 3:5).

The most decisive aspect of the battle over the mind is that Christ has already fought it and won. His whole life was a confirmation of the victory. This fact is nowhere demonstrated better than on the Mount of Temptation. (Matthew 4) On every level and with each clash the devil’s temptation was meant and defeated with the Word of God. On that mountain Christ established what was really real.

Three thoughts for today:
First… During your day consider your thoughts and your
words. Give them to God.
Second… Throughout the day live in the really real. For
example, one thing that is really real is this, “The joy of
the Lord is your strength.”
Third… As you encounter moments of challenge surrender
your mind to God, proclaim His truth and enjoy the
victory. Expose the illusion and cling to God declares is
really real.
