Let’s take a moment this morning at what it means to take our thoughts captive. Are your thoughts God’s thoughts? We must learn to capture the very thoughts of God. These thoughts come from His Word (the Bible). All truth comes from God.
Before we can learn the truth, we must destroy the deception that comes from imaginations, human reasoning of good and evil; that is to say, every high thing raised to be equal to God. All ambitions, ideas, or aspirations must be cast down. We can be free…free to God’s divine truth, but it will only come when our thoughts are subject to Christ.
Apostle Paul sums it up this way in Romans 8:5, Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit (NLT).
Let me say, we can be free from deception when we follow the direction and leading of the Holy Spirit…free from deception is when we please the Spirit. We please the Spirit when we are controlled by the Spirit. His way…God’s way, is the ONLY way!
NOT MY WAY BUT (GOD’S WAY). God’s way is the TRUTH, the LIFE and the WAY.
