Key Verse: [In as much as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), –  2 Corinthians 10:5Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional October 21, 2017

MESSAGE: As Christians, we don’t have to accept every thought that comes into our heads. Instead, we should measure each thought against the standard of Scripture, like the verse above tells us to do.

Here’s a practical example: If someone hurts your feelings, make the decision right then and there that you won’t be upset with them for days on end. That only gives Satan the opportunity to plant seeds of bitterness.

Instead, you can reject negative thinking and refuse to let it drain you of your peace and joy.

Turn to God and say, “Father, I need Your strength. By faith I choose to receive Your grace to forgive those who mistreated or wronged me. I ask You to bless them and help me go on with my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

As our minds are renewed with God’s Word, our thinking will change and line up with Scripture. Then, day by day, godly boundaries around our thoughts will be established and reinforced. These limits will not only keep out the deception of the enemy, but help you live a more enjoyable, godly life.

PRAYER: Lord, I only want to accept the right thought that line up with Your way of thinking and speaking. Alert me when the enemy brings a bad thought my way so I can do what Your word says and take it captive into obedience to You, Amen!
