18 You ascended on high,
leading a host of captives in your train
and receiving gifts among men,
even among the rebellious, that the Lord God may dwell there.
One thing I would like taken captive and lead away is my anxiety. Worrying about little things or problems I don’t currently have but could have.
I am working through this. I suppose to a large degree anxiety is selfish. I only worry about things that can happen to me, or things that could hurt me.
I think maybe the key is to work through it by focusing on others or simply recalling all the good things that have been done around me and for others.
I pray that whenever you feel something is keeping you captive you remember our heavenly Father and the power that He has used to set you free!
