For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 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 10:4-5
There is a battle that we must deal with and it is primarily located between our ears. The mind is an amazing thing but it also can be what holds you captive from experiencing God’s best! Small and negative thinking can stop you from achieving God’s call for your life. Wrong thinking can skew your perspective so that it prevents you from experiencing healthy and vibrant friendships.
The enemy can plant thoughts in your mind that argue against the revelation of God’s Word. Thoughts can become strongholds if we don’t capture those thoughts and replace them with scripture. Human reasoning, traditions of men, and personal experiences can all become arguments against the will of God for your life. I find this especially true with many Christians when it comes to understanding our righteousness in Christ, divine healing, and financial prosperity.
When God gives you fresh revelation from His Word make sure you capture that revelation by writing it down. Tuck it away then next time you study the Word pull it out and meditate on it. Don’t forget what the Spirit of God is saying to you, it will help you win when the battle rages in your mind!
