Feb 6

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Saturday. February 6th.
The 7th day of the Hebraic week. And everybody says “HalleluYah!”

Our verse today is 2 Cor. 10:5.

2 Cor. 10:5
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

“take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ”

We’ve discussed this topic before in other verses. Yet, here we see it again. You know, when the scriptures mention things multiple times in multiple ways, we need to take note. If something is repeated, it’s repeated for a reason.

As I have heard before…

Sew a thought, reap an action.
Sew an action, reap a habit.
Sew a habit, reap a destiny.

What do you think on? What kind of thoughts do you allow yourself to dwell on? Be honest. Could it be bitterness? Hate? Maybe dwelling on past mistakes?

Dwelling on anything that opposes what the Word gives us, only creates a mentality that is willing to oppose the Word when it doesn’t fit our desires. You see, when we say something that opposes the word, we have friends to keep us in check. Iron sharpening iron.

However, our thoughts can only be kept in check by us. If you don’t keep you thoughts in check, they could be doing you much more harm than you think. Dwelling on your inabilities can only create doubt. Dwelling on hate will only create unforgiveness. The list can keep on going.

We HAVE to keep our thought life in obedience to the Word. As I’ve heard before and I strongly agree, the mind is the battlefield. It all starts there.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
