Living It Out By Faith Pt. 20
… Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…
II Corinthians 10:5 NKJV
As we continue discussing the importance of what we hear when it comes to faith, we have to talk about the things we hear in our own heads. Like it or not, you are constantly thinking. However, what you think is completely in your control. You choose what thoughts you will allow to remain, and what thoughts you refuse to think about.
With that being said, there is a war going on for the thoughts you are thinking. There are real angels and real demons. The Holy Spirit in you is speaking and wanting you to think His thoughts, and the enemy is whispering, trying to get you to think his thoughts. But again, the choice is yours. It can be difficult to identify what thoughts are your own, but that is why the word of God is so important! It will help you discern if your thinking God’s thoughts or not.
When we meditate on God’s word, we are thinking His thoughts. The more we think God’s thoughts, the more we will say and act on them. It also becomes much easier to identify carefully crafted lies of the enemy when we think those thoughts as well. What you hear will determine what you think, and the Bible makes it clear that what you think will define your life (Proverbs 23:7). Think God’s thoughts and let His word define your life!
Be Blessed and Encouraged,
