Have you ever had these thoughts cross your mind? Sometimes, thoughts like these can become so ordinary to us that we gradually believe these thoughts and allow these thoughts to become us. In actual fact, these poisonous and destructive thoughts are arguments set up against the knowledge of God. It was never God’s intension for us to live by putting up with these thoughts.
The great news is that the Bible gives us keys or extraordinary “weapons” to break out of these thoughts and become the person we were meant to be. One of these powerful “weapons” is the real truth from the Word of God. Truth is different to facts and many times we can get stuck on facts without finding out the truth. For example, the fact can be that I have made a mistake, the truth is that I can ask God for forgiveness, I am not condemned and I can leave the past behind.
To find truth, find a verse that stands out, ask God to make it real, read it, research it, understand its context, read it aloud, think about it, think about how to apply it and keep swinging that “weapon” of truth until those thoughts are made captive! That’s when our lives begin to change.
Christ has come to give us freedom, to make us above and not beneath, victorious not defeated! Let’s take a hold of what He has done for us!
2 Cor 10:4-5 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 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.
