Bringing Into Captivity Every Thought

Casting down imaginations and each excessive factor that exalteth itself towards the information of God, and bringing into captivity each thought to the obedience of Christ. P Corinthians 10:H KJV

Did you already know which you could management your ideas? P Corinthians 10:H says we will. Thoughts type our actuality. Our ideas make us who we’re. Proverbs 23:S says, “As a person thinks in his coronary heart, so is he”. It’s our duty to protect our minds towards unfavourable ideas as a result of what we take into consideration probably the most, we’ll ultimately develop into. So precisely how can we forged down imaginations and each excessive factor that exalteth itself towards the information of God, and convey into captivity each thought to the obedience of Christ?

We convey into captivity each thought by the phrases of our mouth. It’s inconceivable to assume a adverse thought and converse a constructive phrase on the similar time. The adverse thought should depart whereas the constructive phrases are popping out);

One of the issue areas for me with regards to damaging ideas attacking my thoughts has to do with my automotive breaking down on the freeway. When I started driving as a teen, I referred to as for towing service a lot that I knew all the tow truck drivers on a primary identify foundation. My automotive was continuously breaking down on me. I suppose these early experiences helped form the “worry” I have at the moment about breaking down in some desolate space of city. Now quick ahead to 2009…

In 2009 I made a cross nation transfer from Indiana to California in my 1992 Chevy Tahoe. My truck has been probably the most snug and dependable automobiles I have ever owned. This specific car had by no means damaged down on me earlier than, however even thought I had no foundation for “break down” ideas, my thoughts was bombarded with ideas about breaking down and having no telephone reception to name for assist throughout this street journey.

Even now I can recall driving via sure areas of Oklahoma at 3AM with not one single automotive in website. For me, these aren’t nice ideas. My thoughts was plagued with destructive ideas and I regularly needed to deliver into captivity each thought to the obedience of Christ by talking the Word of God out loud.

The scripture I used to get me to California protected on this journey was Psalm 34:S… The angel of the Lord encamps round those that reverence Him and delivers them. I made the journey in 36 hours.  Other than gasoline stops, I stopped to relaxation solely as soon as for forty five minutes. During this journey I in all probability spoke Psalm 34:S out of my mouth over one hundred occasions. Every time I discovered myself meditating on breaking down, I let Psalm 34:S stream out of my mouth and every time I did, the ideas of breaking down would go away. Speaking phrases is how we forged down imaginations and each excessive factor that exalteth itself towards the information of God, and convey into captivity each);

So what destructive ideas are you coping with? What ideas are you having that you recognize are detrimental to the place you need to be in life? I urge you to convey into captivity each thought with the Word of God. Don’t permit any thought that contradicts Gods Word to take root in your thoughts. Take the time to discover a scripture to do battle together with your thoughts and let that scripture move out of your mouth regularly and you’ll cease these ideas from having a chance to manifest in your life.
