Growing in Christ is the only way to overcome the carnal mind, a mind that was bought and paid for by His blood! His Reliable Bible Verses teach us everything we need to live life and live it more abundantly! God is a good God...all the time!
...Paul planted, Apollos watered; but God made it grow. 1 Corinthians 3:6
The Key to "How To" Grow in Christ, overcome fear, overcome anxiety and overcoming the flesh, is much simpler than one thinks. We must simply replace our thoughts with His thoughts. His Words will do it. It will take time but eventually the fear, anxiety, depression, the flesh desires will begin to line up with the Word. Once you realize these are not your thoughts. These are the devil's desires and his thoughts he uses to tempt you... the tricky thing he does is using your own voice in your mind so you think its you...this is a lie... it is not you! This realization would have many folks in mental institutions packing their bags and head for the nearest exit.
It is simply temptation from the devil to get you to think his way. This even happens to believing Christians; even myself. This is why we must renew our minds daily to the Words of God!If you think about it even back in the Garden of Eden they were not even created to think but simply to trust. It wasn't until another voice showed up and they obeyed it.
This is why Jesus is Lord and Savior. He was tempted in all ways but did not fall prey to the thoughts of the devil. Remember these words in your journey it is written!
2 Corinthians 10 teaches us that we must... cast down every imagination and all thoughts that are contrary to His Word and make them obedient to Christ.
A mind we already have when we were created in the womb of our Mother but which many don't fully understand. Remember this: He created us we didn't create ourselves.
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16
For as the rain and the snow comes down from heaven and does not return but waters the earth, making it bring forth and bud, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my words be that come out from my mouth; they shall not return to me void, but they shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent them. Is. 55
