WORD FOR TODAY. CJM
FYI: CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS
Once a person has repented and become born-again, God gives him directions on how to win the battle or war against Satan’s cunning, deceptive devices. One of these directions is the following.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that EXALTETH itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;…”
2 Corinthians 10:4,5
-If a thought comes into your mind to sin, cast it down.
– If adulterous thoughts come into your mind and you begin looking on a woman to lust after her, cast it down.
– If a thought comes into your mind to become involved in the affairs of this world, cast it down.
– If a thought comes into your mind that in any way is contrary to God’s Word, cast it down.
– If any imagination or thought comes into your mind that is not in harmony with the Gospel, cast it down.
Cast down every high thing that sets itself up against the knowledge of God’s Word.
Bring every thought and imagination you have into the obedience of God’s Word (the obedience of Christ). Sin begins with a wrong thought. Going astray from God begins with a wrong thought. Then it grows, and your emotions become involved. The desires of your heart become involved. Beware. Obey this verse.
