The Lord Be With You Today! 2 Corinthians 10:5b . . . and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (here is a military reference that likens our thought life to breaching a city and taking the inhabitants captive; here’s a point where the Lord invites us to enter the battle and to make an impact; not only do we depend on God’s armor and His weapons to fight against strongholds we meet in the world or in ourselves, but we follow up by taking control of our own thinking, by using self-discipline to control our thoughts; taking thoughts captive involves the discipline of exchanging each destructive thought with truth from God; we overpower destructive attacks with the very truths of God’s Word; we replace the wrong thinking that fills our mind with truth, God’s very Word, on which we can stand in confidence; we become fully subject to the lordship of Christ and allow Him to fill our minds with truth instead of lie as we speak His truths and focus on His Word rather than on the lie) May the Lord richly bless you this day!
