Today's word is from 2 Corinthians 10:5

“Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge [Word] of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”

One of the main ways that the devil attacks believers is in the area of their minds.

As Christians we need to cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ by grace through faith.

The devil continually tries to put negative thoughts, false information, fears, false perceptions of others, and false conclusions into our thinking. These false arguments attempt to exalt themselves up against truth of the Word of God. 

Those that yield to this will find themselves trapped into a web of deception, resulting in fear, stress, worry, depression and hopelessness.

Let me give you one example… You may perceive that another believer does not like you and is out to harm you. Your perception may be right, and it may be wrong, but if you can be convinced by the devil that that person is a problem to you, you have just bought and paid for a FALSE UNBIBLICAL ARGUMENT that contradicts the Word… if this is the case, YOUR THINKING HAS JUST BEEN POLLUTED!

 

The Bible says that our struggle is NOT against flesh and blood, so placing blame or accusations on other believers [no matter what the facts may be] is not Scriptural and only brings division.

A Biblically correct approach would be bind the devil and then to pray for that individual and find ways to bless them. That is an example of bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ according to His Word!

The devil continually tries to plant thoughts that contradict the Word into our minds…

Thoughts regarding our relationships with others,

Thoughts regarding our finances,

Thoughts regarding our health,

Thoughts regarding our future, and thoughts that exult circumstances and diminish the Word.

I encourage you to keep your eye on the Word and if your conclusions are not in compliance with the Word… cast them down and DON’T ALLOW THE DEVIL TO POLLUTE YOUR MIND!

PRAYER

Father, I take every thought captive to the obedience of the Word of God. If my thoughts or conclusions do not align with the Word, I cast them down. 

I will not allow my mind to be caught up in the web of satan’s deception. I will not allow my mind to be polluted. I know that Scriptural thinking always brings faith, hope, peace and joy, so if my thoughts do not bring faith, hope, peace and joy, I cast them down, in Jesus Name!

I have the mind of Christ, my mind belongs to You, and my mind remains pure, undefiled and unpolluted, in Jesus Name!
