“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” ~ 2 Corinthians 10
To Capture one’s thoughts, taking the time to analyze everything that comes into your mind before you allow it to be filed away or said. This is not something that is generally taught in our society right now. You say what you think, anything else would be people not wanting to know the “real you”. If they don’t want to hear what you think then they are “racist”. However, this is something that we are clearly commanded to do. So what does it mean?
Over the past few months I have found myself doing a lot of learning on this subject. Did you know that you control your brain and your brain doesn’t control you? Did you know that you are able to “say” to a thought “you are not something I want to think about”. Taking it another step did you know that you can decide to think about something else?
So take a minute, what are you five senses feeding into your brain, what memories are those outside influences bring up in your mind. Are these things that you want to think about. Are these memories that you want to keep at the surface of your mind? Be still, clear you mind and see what God has to say to you.
