The enemy can play a trick on us to hold us captive. But, the Bible assures us that there is "no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit" (Rom. 8:1). We have been set "free from the law of sin and death" (Rom. 8:2). But, the enemy of our soul tries to make us believe we are still dominated by sin.
What shall we do then? Reflect on what Christ has done. He died for our sins and declared an end to sin's control over us (Rom. 8:3). He rose from the dead and gave us the Holy Spirit. Now, we are empowered to live victoriously in Him because "the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us" (Rom. 8:11).
In Christ, we are set free. Experience true freedom. Take every thought captive in obedience in Christ. Follow Him. Invite Him in your hearts today to rule over it.
