2 Corinthians 10:5 AMP
…and we lead every thought and purpose away captive…
Next level thinking will cause you to check your every thought and take it captive until you clear it with a very high set of standards. This can be exhausting at times but very rewarding.
Some things that change as you learn to take every thought through your set of standards.
1. You notice change in yourself
2. You see the world differently
3. You notice more negative and unproductive language in yourself and society.
The bible is clear that the Lords thoughts and ways are higher than ours. (Isaiah 55:8) For us to reach higher levels of thinking, we must realize that we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16b says, but we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart. Though our old life is gone (2 Corinthians 5:17), we still need to do all we can to prevent the negative and unproductive thoughts to settle in our minds. We need to renew our minds daily (Romans 12:2) or we will daily face the consequences of an unfulfilled calling.
Jesus wants you to have a full life. (John 10:10) Start today by taking every thought captive. Sift it through the Word of God. If it’s scripture, keep it. If not, cast it down.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
