The God Zone
By Michael Cochran
“There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.”
“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
My mind was going in so many directions that nothing I was thinking seemed real. This can’t be happening again, I thought. Truly, somehow I’d entered a sphere of endless despair and hopelessness. I had traveled unexpectedly into my own Twilight Zone where my every thought was being held prisoner in some dimension between space and time. There really wasn’t any distinction between yesterday and the present. But, I had a word and it was the anchor to my soul.
It came on so very fast, I’m really not sure when it began. I was just disgruntled with life. It didn’t have purpose. The joy was gone, replaced by an overwhelming sense of failure and swallowed up by my worse fear.
I plodded through the next few months. No joy, but keeping on nonetheless, committed to getting back in touch with my emotions. In my mind I knew this ending to a season would be the beginning of something new and better. But, the fight was still before me.
At some moment, I realized I had entertained – not just one lie, but many lies. My “Twilight Zone” simply wasn’t true. Accusations and lies persisted. You’ll never pull out of this. ”I can do all things through Christ…” I’m not sure I can overcome this. “I am more than a conqueror; more than an overcomer through Him who loves me.”
The fight was on. Keep going. Don’t stop! You’re almost there was echoing in my spirit as I held fast to the Word of God that was dismembering every negative thought and drowning my inhibitions into a sea of forgetfulness. The battle still raged. But, the enemy was shrinking back. Now was no time to let up. It was as though a great cloud of witnesses were before me encouraging me to press on.
Then suddenly, I was transformed back to reality with a renewed mind and a hope. I found myself ready to face the problems that may come tomorrow. And, they will come. My heart thrilled with a new thought, “How far can I go if I believe and face my problems God’s way?” Imagine that! So, why didn’t I think of that before I entered into an unfamiliar dimension somewhere between here and there?
Proverbs 23:7 says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Romans 8:6 says, “”For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” That my friend is the true dimension known as the “God Zone.” Oh! By the way, “It is for whosoever….asks.” That qualifies us all. So, climb aboard and let’s take this trip together.
