SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY
WORD FOR TODAY. CJM
“…For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)…” – 2 Corinthians 10: 4-5 (AMP)
Every thought that is not wholesome, or is proud, or not in line with God’s word and purposes, or negative thinking, we need to “lead away captive into the obedience of Christ.” In other words, it needs to come under the Lordship of Christ. As we focus more on God, we will find these wrong thoughts will soon decrease because we’re realigning our thinking. We have to actively stop ourselves dwelling on it and to fill our minds with Godly things. These are the weapons of our warfare and by doing these things, we will pull down the strongholds in our thought lives.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
