[II Cor. 10:5b] …and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
By the end of this day, 300,000 thoughts will have passed through your mind! Recent scientific studies reveal that 90% of them will be redundant. How many will be unhealthy? How many of them will be toxic? How many will be rooted in false beliefs that are contrary to the Word of God? Do we know how to sort through our thoughts, take them captive and make them obedient to Christ? This is a critical exercise for every follower of Jesus; and it happens as we review our day and its activities by sitting before the Lord honestly and openly and allowing the Holy Spirit to speak from God’s Word to the everyday realities of our lives. We cannot engage in this spiritual discipline without Holy Spirit application and enablement. If you have not yet learned to present your thoughts, your actions, your psyche to the Lord every evening, start now. This is the secret to living a Spirit-led life.
