This morning as I pray about the world, I am reminded of the carnal mind in Romans 8:7 which reads “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” Isn’t this the same mind that attempts to come in to tell us we are not smart enough, good enough, well enough, etc. ? Just as we should be aware of fake news, we should be aware of this type of thinking; refute it, remove it and replace it with the Truth about us. We are made in the image and likeness of God; perfect, whole, pure, spotless, innocent, etc. God being the only Creator, looked at all He ever made and said it was very Good.
Philippians 4:4-6 states “Rejoice in the Lord always, I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
