The state of the world is a reflection of the condition of the hearts of men. Because we have dominion over the earth, it’s up to us to change it. But we can’t do this in our own intellect and strength. We must be led by the spirit of God from our hearts. God has given believers a new heart that knows how to hear him and allow his kingdom to manifest into this dimension. We
Studies show that if you focus on something for at least 2 minutes, your emotions can change. This is especially powerful when you’re experiencing worry or fear.

The astounding truth is Jesus Christ became your sin, took on your sin nature, became like you so you could become like him…righteous. Jesus bore our sickness, disease, guilt and shame. Jesus took the chastisement for our peace with God. Jesus died the death we deserve.
