We were created in the image of God, and we are His masterpieces. What would our lives be like if we lived like we believed that truth? The biggest reason we don’t is because we have let toxic thoughts run rampant in our minds.
When the Bible says to take our thoughts captive, that means we have the power to do something about it. As Christians, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in us. With the Holy Spirit’s help, we can manage our thoughts.
Why is it important that we take captive these thoughts?
Because they go against God’s best and prevent us from living joy-filled lives.
Be the boss of your thoughts, not the other way around.
What is a recurring, toxic thought that you need to start taking captive today? Call it what it is—a lie.
“casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,”
II Corinthians 10:5
