Ephesians 6:12 (NIV) For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
The battle believers wage is spiritual. So beware of the subtle thoughts that come your way and “every pretention that sets itself up against the knowledge of God” (Ephesians 10:3-5). Live aware of the many ways your thoughts are being influenced. We need a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit, a constant flow of His divine life to enable us to discern correctly the ideas and attitudes that seek lodging in our minds. Capture every thought and bring it to Christ.
