HOSTAGE TO LIES w w w. I F G F O C. c o m
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 Stronghold: ochuroma (okh-oo'-ro-mah); to fortify, a strong castle, a prisoner locked by deception.
WHAT LIES HOLD US HOSTAGE? GOD CANT CHANGE ME …we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 NLT masterpiece: poiema (poy'-ay-mah); a product with a designated purpose, workmanship, masterpiece. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation ; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Cor. 5:17-18
THE STRATEGY CAPTURE WRONG THOUGHTS. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 …whatever is true…noble…right…pure…lovely…admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. Philippians 4:8
SPEAK TRUTH. The tongue has the power of life and death… Proverbs 18:21 May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. Psalms 19:14 NLT
DONT GIVE UP. To this end I labor, struggling with all His energy, which so powerfully works in me. Colossians 1:29-2:1 agonizomai (ag-o-nid'-zom-ahee); to struggle, to compete for a prize, to contend with an adversary, and win.
Guard your heart above all else For it determines the course of Your Life... Prov 4:23 …But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
