Bondage

Even when they left the land of Egypt they still murmured and complained everyday, even though God was providing them food on a daily basis. A journey that should have taken a couple of days took them 40 years. Why would God allow this to happen? What was He trying to accomplish?  Although they were no longer in bondage (physical) they were still enslaved in their mind. God wanted them to have a new mindset.

God wants us to be free in our mind. He came so that the captives could be set free.

It was in Eve’s mind that the enemy held her captive. She was faced with an another option. At least that is what she believed in her mind. The picture that the enemy painted made it seem like his option was better than the one that was given to her by God. For years I was like Eve and I allowed the enemy to control my mind believing the lies that he told me. As I am being transformed I don’t believe those lies anymore. I am no longer bound in my mind. I am able to celebrate this freedom which Christ gives.

Let us not be deceived in our minds so that we make the wrong choices. If we allow the enemy to control our mind (thoughts) those actions follow. It is the same way as if we allow Christ to dwell in our minds it is his actions that we follow. Keep his word close for at any given time it is His word that you are going to need and call upon.

Lord I have hidden your word in my heart that I will not sin against you. It is His desire that we have his mindset.
