War has been on my mind a lot lately. I’ve been tuned into the news and its reports of suffering, evil and varying perspectives. The rights and wrongs and the responses we bring to them can seem so grey. This verse Paul wrote to the Corinthian church jumped out at me in a new way.
We live in the world. It wars. We do not war the way it wars.
But we still wage war.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10: 3-6
We are to be fighting the things that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God in our lives. Do we take that mission seriously? Do we passively allow ourselves to experience attack because we let lies set up camp in our hearts?
Wage war this week. Ask God to show you what this verse means for you.
Burn to Memory is our special section focused on Scripture to memorize. Pin it, print it or make it your smartphone wallpaper. Why is memorizing Scripture so important? What’s in your heart comes out at the moments when it is needed. (And if what’s in there isn’t good, it’ll come out even when you don’t want it to!)
