Take Every Thought Captive
God wants us to put a security guard at the entrance of our mind. He wants us to take “every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” EVERY THOUGHT! The list of acceptable thoughts God approves is found in Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.” What is in your mind today? Do your thoughts match up with Philippians 4:8? Have you have been lax in taking every thought captive? Have you allowed some lies to park in your mind---lies like, I’m no good, I can’t be forgiven, I will never overcome this addiction, my marriage is never going to get better, what’s the use of praying? Does any of that sound familiar? Rest assured, if you will start putting God’s Word into practice in your life, you will start seeing wonderful changes take place. God’s Word is not only true, it is also powerful to transform your life. Do what God says and you’ll surely find Real Hope!
