Fairy Tales and War
Fairy tales, we all have them. We live in this physical body, in this physical world and unfortunately our thinking goes right along with it. We build this little box in our mind of the way we think life should be. We mold and shape our thinking and activities in our lives to fit in this little box. We want what we want. We want good health, lots of money, a great family, freedom from responsibility etc... We want to live happily ever after! This is our fairy tale.
Reality is that we are in a spiritual war. The war is between God and Satan. Included in this war are angels, demons, the entire world and all its inhabitants. With the war being invisible, it is hard to realize that it is real. But we must comprehend and live this reality.
Creating fairy tales in our mind thwarts our efficacy in this life. The world is about God and His plan. He wants us to be mature, unselfish and holy. When we've surrendered that this life is not our own and that God is in control, peace comes. Anger and frustration leaves when things are hard. When we let the peace of God rule, we know that adversity molds and shapes our patience, endurance, maturity and ultimately our holiness. It is the intangible and spiritual that is important in this life.
Learning how to base our thoughts in reality and not in a fairy tale is the concept of this website.
2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
To navigate through this war successfully, we need a relationship with God through His son, Jesus, and learn to walk with Him.
