2 Corinthians 10:5 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.

When we acknowledge God is present everywhere in the universe, from creation to infinity, we understand that He created our minds and hearts to perpetually dwell on Him. We draw life and peace from the indwelling Spirit. And so, when we look to the beauty of His creation (as in a sunset), we are reminded to take our thoughts captive to Christ, who created the sunset and all of our beautiful creation. Such thoughtful admiration is life giving. God helps us demolish the stronghold, human thoughts filled with fear and decay with the power of His Spirit who brings our thoughts captive to Christ, the embodiment of life and peace. Let your mind and heart see Christ in all of creation, including you, and be at peace.
