“Taking every thought and purpose captive …” [Jesus Christ]



2 Corinthians 10:5 Amplified Bible

We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ,

Something I need to share today is that it is much easier to say ‘take every thought and purpose captive’.  My own experiences have taught me that yes, sometimes I have the ability to check myself, watch my words and thoughts.  Then sometimes I lose control and I fail dismally. 
That is why I believe God has given each one of us the ability to read and understand His word (Bible).  The discipline is to read our Bibles each and every day, getting out of bed and making some time to spend in the Word of God. We need that time to learn and grow spiritually.

Prayer

Lord our God, today I commit my life into Your hands and humble myself asking that through the Holy Spirit, Lord You will help me learn more about whom You really are, taking each and every thought and purpose captive in my own life.  Lord guiding me in the direction You have planned for me, in Jesus Name.  Amen

It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
