The Battle for the Mind Webinar Series
"The Battle for the Mind" is a 6-part series about how we can obey God's command to "be transformed by the renewing of our minds." The series will help you discover the four most prevalent wrong patterns of thinking we fall into (We call these 'stinkin' thinkin.'), and how God says we can win the battle for thinking right (being transformed).
When something happens, do you think of the situation only in terms of how it affects you? This kind of thinking can really get you into trouble. But find out how Jeremiah learned to conquer ‘It’s all about me’ thinking.
This webinar will be available ON DEMAND on June 1, 2013.
Registrants will receive an email on the release date containing links to the recorded session and its listening guide.
We are commanded by the Holy Spirit to encourage one another and build each other up (1 Thessalonians 5:11). If you know the Lord, then, hopefully, you take this command pretty seriously. You try your best to encourage those who are discouraged. But is that enough? Is there more to this command than meets the eye?
Well, of course there is, or we wouldn’t be asking, would we? What does it mean to live the life of an encourager? What does an encourager look like, anyway?
It was our sixth trip to the ER with chest pain in a little over a year. After open heart surgery plus three stents had stabilized Bette’s heart condition, we dared to believe we were finally done with these anxious trips to the hospital. But there we were again. And all the old fears grappled for our thoughts.
“Will this mean yet another procedure that sets us aside for the next several months? Or are You through with us, Lord? Are You putting us on the shelf? Is it time to hang up our spurs and call it quits?” Our hearts cried out to the Lord. We were overwhelmed by the uncertainties of the future and the emotional strain of those uncertainties.
You may not have had this exact experience, but you’ve had similar ones, haven’t you? We all have times in our lives when we cry out in confusion and pain to the Lord. This is part of the human experience and none of us escape it. The sun shines and the rain falls on the just and the unjust (Matthew 5:45). And it’s all right to cry. In fact, it’s good to cry. Let it out. The Bible says over one-hundred times that the Lord hears our cries and has compassion on us. Your kids cry out to you when they get hurt and you run to their rescue. Our Father God cares for us even more!
