Walking In and Living Out Our Salvation
Everyday an invisible war rages around you. You have an enemy who is seeking to kill, steal, and destroy. He will do whatever he can to make you futile and unproductive in your walk with Christ. He wants you suffocating in sin, insecurity, fear, and discouragement so that you cannot live freely or fully. He is crafty. He is deceitful, and he wants to take you down and take you out. But, this enemy has also already been disarmed, embarrassed, overuled, mastered, rendered powerless, and has had all of his hard work destroyed because of the victory of Christ over sin and death. Christ's victory is your victory. We are in spiritual batter. Standing in the power of God, we win. Fighting with God's weapons, infused with God's power, we overcome.

So What?
1. Identify the toxic thought patterns you’ve been nursing and recognize them for what they are—strongholds that, along with the enemy you’ve assisted in constructing within your mind.
2. Confess errant though processes to God and agree with Him about your responsibility to construct these strongholds in your life.
3. Dismantle the stronghold by taking your thoughts captive, then renewing your perspective and understanding through the concentrated deliberate applying of God’s truth.
