Yesterday, I heard a remarkable bit of local news. It seems an area rancher in a nearby community had a theft of cattle valued at over $3,000. Cattle rustlers are making a comeback! I do not know any details as to how the perpetrators carried out their plan. Did the thief use a lasso to capture the herd one-by-one?
We can be winners, taking back prized thought processes, through spiritual roping competition. “…for the weapons used in my warfare are not mere human ones, but through my God are mighty for demolishing fortresses. For I am demolishing arguments and every barrier that is raised against the genuine knowledge of God (2 Corinthians 10:4-5a Williams New Testament).”
We recapture spoil the evil wrestler of tranquility took from us. “…taking captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5b Williams New Testament).” Satan may swing a wide rope, but God equips me for spiritual battle with exactly what I need and precisely when I need it.
