Two things that can change your cranium (brain) chemistry: 1) Experiencing church as caring community (like a support group); and 2) Consistent combat against your spiritual enemies.
When the church gathers, the Holy Spirit wants to freely circulate among us like a whirlwind, rearranging things according to His plan. However, we tend to prefer that He steps aside and lets us follow our own program.
Let’s open up our hearts to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and allow His breeze to blow among us as we share songs, revelations, testimonies, teachings, Scriptures, & spiritual gifts with one another!
And let’s learn to close our hearts to our spiritual enemy. Sometimes tormenting thoughts assail me and I must rebut them will all my might! However, with all the resistance I can muster and with the living Jesus Christ actively strengthening me in the fight, inner peace prevails!
Continually contemplating contrary circumstances will create confusion in your cranium’s chemistry and cause you countless discouragement. (That’s why Paul of Tarsus taught: “Whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, if there be any virtue, if there be any praise; think on these things.“)
With Christ, we can overcome! Know Jesus, no fear! No Jesus, know fear.
