We take captive every thought to obey Christ. – 2 Corinthians 10:5
When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior our salvation is secure, but many times instead of feeling the victory that we should we are bombarded with negative thoughts and emotions. Our minds become a battlefield that the enemy uses to cripple us with fear and steal our joy. How do we combat this? We can pray, read/study scripture, and worship God. My TWO go to methods are: Praise & Worship and memorizing/declaring scripture over myself and my circumstances. It’s pretty hard to dwell on negative thoughts while your singing praises! Ha! AND, if you want to send the enemy to fleeing, start quoting scripture out Loud and calling on the name of JESUS! Take a scripture and say it out loud! Put your name in it! If you’re battling negative thoughts, I challenge you today to try worship or speaking scripture to bring every thought into obedience to Christ. Remember, greater is He that is in us than He that is in the world.
