“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” 2Cor: 10:5 (I memorized it in KJV in college)
It’s one of my often quoted, memorized verses. Especially when struggling with fear! Sometimes when I worry my mind goes to pretty drastic places. Haven’t heard from a loved one? 😱 More international struggles, earthquakes? Sky is falling? Or how about “I’ve failed at everything”! Or “of what use am I?” “I’m worthless.” Anything!
I tell myself constantly to cast down those imaginations-and remind myself of the God who loves me and who is in control! As I get older, I don’t want to be drowning in fears, but to be able to lift my head in confidence and trust to behold the one Who holds me in His hands!
Remember, He is our Glory and the lifter of our heads! Psalm 3:3
The Lord bless you!
