“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.” 2 Corinthians 10:5

Fear can make your world tremble and paralyze your voice.

When fear begins to pillage our faith, or when we have succumbed to worry it is important to have an awareness of the power and sovereignty of God. Speak faith and begin to pray a hedge of protection around your situation or family members. It is amazing what will happen when we get out eyes off of our problem and unto our mighty, problem-solver!

When we exalt our problems, fear, sickness, etc., above the knowledge of God – He commands us to declare His word. We need to plead the blood of Jesus and cast down every high thing that exalts itself against God’s authority.

Your words have power and your prayers can change lives.

What do you need to proclaim in the spirit today? What do you need to cast down?

Prayer: Lord, You know me better than I know myself and I believe that you care about all of the things that make me feel overwhelmed. I cast down fear and proclaim your perfect love.  I command every lie the enemy tries to whisper in my ear to be silenced and I plead the blood of Jesus over my thoughts. In Jesus name.
