Of course we are human, but we don’t fight like humans. The weapons we use in our fight are not made by humans. Rather, they are powerful weapons from God. With them we destroy people’s defenses, that is, their arguments and all their intellectual arrogance that oppose the knowledge of God. We take every thought captive so that it is obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 GW
You are responsible for what you allow into your head. You can receive or reject it, your choice. What you allow, determines who you become. Some of us have been thinking on the wrong things way too long. It’s confused us into believing we are less than God created us to be; kings and priests.
Every thought captive! Sometimes you have to say, “Hold up there! That thought doesn’t line up with the Word of God, so I’m not receiving it!” Than find the scripture that is true and speak it out. That’s how Jesus handled the devil when he encountered him in the wilderness. “It is written….”
Whether it be in response to a pain in your body, a diagnosis from the doctor, a bad report from your boss or people in your face about politics, recognize the distraction for what it is and cast it down. I choose to discard anything that tries to take precedence over the Word of God. If what I feel is contrary to the Word, I say, “Not today devil! This is what the Word says about that.”
When fear comes–God has not given me a spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind.
When need knocks–My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches, not mine.
When pain comes–Jesus himself took all my sickness and pain with him to the cross so that I wouldn’t have to, because by the stripes He took on His back, I was healed.
Father, Your Word is alive, powerful and sharper than any scalpel a doctor would use. It’s proven, perfect, a shield to all who trust in You. Thank You Lord that today, Your Word is manifested in my body, my mind, my finances, my faith and future. You are more than enough for me. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
