II Corinthians 10:4-5

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.  On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.  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. NIV

Take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ … I love that.

To worry is to be disobedient.  The Bible says over and over again not to do it … and yet, I still do.  But, these verses say that I have weapons at my disposal that have the power to demolish strongholds.

Through prayer, through trusting God, who has, in fact overcome the world, I can get past this worry stronghold … I can more than get past it, I banish it.

I’m praying about that today.
