Get Ready to Rumble

Sometimes your conflicts are with an actual antagonist who wants to emotionally or physically harm you. But most of your battles are with yourself, with old ways of thinking that let pain, fear, and resentment sabotage your life.

When those past mindsets take over your present perceptions, they cloud your identity and mess with your relationships. They make God seem distant, unreachable, and uncaring, when nothing could be further from the truth.

Silence the lies by being fiercely, unyieldingly thankful for every good thing in your life until they lose their voices. Gratefulness isn’t a fleeting response to an occasional blessing. It’s a state of being, your new nature in Jesus that’s always aware of God’s unceasing goodness and its potential to expand your life, transform your circumstances, and beat the snot out of the old you.

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is truly good. His faithful love for you endures forever” (Psalm 107:1).
