”…small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:14
Watching the early morning sun chase the shadows and touch the mountain tops bared by leafless trees allows the mind to be at peace and the heart to fill with gratitude, but then the day begins.
In a very real way, boundaries begin in the mind. Thoughts are the powerhouse that drives the engine of your life. Paul said we should “captivate” our thoughts. ”The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strong holds. 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.”
As heirs with Christ, ”Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ…”(Romans 8:17), we are saints. Paul says, ”I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, if indeed we share in his sufferings…” (Ephesians 1:18). We are set apart for God, equipped through His Word by His power to transform our thinking until we think like God thinks. Nothing else has the power to heal the suffering of mankind and everything else is a lie of the evil one.
When our thoughts agree with God’s Word, the boundaries of our lives breathe. There is peace and joy and unending gratitude. What drives the center will cause the circumference to shine. The boundaries catch the wind and all things are possible! (Mark 9:23)
