Overhauling Toxic Thoughts – DAY 3
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5
RESET YOUR MIND
We often have thoughts that go against what God says, be it sin, identity, or otherwise. Thoughts that, if dwelt upon or given footing, will lead us astray. We then say, I can’t help what pops into my mind. The bible says we can take control of our minds and our thoughts captive.
Fact. Jesus rose from the dead. Fact Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. Fact God parted the sea for Moses. So, if you can acknowledge those things are facts, understand this. The same Jesus, the same God who did all those things resides in us. With his help we certainly can take control or take captive our thoughts. We may of course have the errant thought slip into our minds. Thoughts of our own unworthiness, thoughts of lust or greed, thoughts of helplessness. All of these given power and left to grow and fester will take over and become toxic in our minds. Many of them we have lived with for years and the roots run deep. Pray to our Lord to help you take control of those thoughts.
