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. – 2 Corinthians 10:5
Okay, here is a little lesson in breaking down a scripture and applying it to your situation. We have been talking about insecurity, and how we are working at fasting from it. And this scripture goes along with everything we have been talking about this week in transforming our minds.
I can’t speak for everyone, but I can speak for most when I say that the battle against insecurity takes place mostly in our minds. It is in our thoughts, especially in the thoughts we think that other people are thinking about us.
I have caught myself many times thinking about what such and such was thinking when they said or did something to me. I was sure it was because they didn’t like me or that they were rejecting me. When I would go down this route, I would totally find myself sad and broken hearted.
Then it hit me. These thoughts are arguments and high things exalting itself against the knowledge of God.
The knowledge of God says that I am accepted in Christ. I am one with Him. I am His body.
When any thought that does not line up with these things comes at me, I need to take that thought captive. That means I just don’t think it. I stop and think on something else. And a great way to do this is to find a scripture, change it to first person and quote it. You can’t think something else than what you are speaking out of your mouth.
And before you know it, you are thinking what is knowledge in God!
How cool is that?
