Sunday February 24, 2013 – God wants to be everything to us. He wants to be the force behind the good that we do. It’s doing good in God’s power, not through our own.
We’re supposed to live and be obedient in the power and in the spirit of the grace of God. – Pastor Dwayne Terry
Preemptive Strikes for the Mind
Preemptive Strike, Part 04
Genesis 1:28 – God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
A Preemptive Strike is humbling yourself before God every day and focusing on His power to work through you.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5a – 4For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…
High thing is Hypsōma [hü’-psō-mä] – an elevated thing, an elevated structure i.e., a strong tower.
There can be bondage in safety.
To what areas of my life do I run for safety?
2 Corinthians 10:5b – “…that the high thing exalts itself against the knowledge of God”.
There can be freedom in safety.
2 Corinthians 10:5c – …bringing every thought into captivity to the
obedience of Christ
Psalm 32:7 – You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.
Proverbs 18:10 – The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.
