Strongholds In The Mind Torn Down

by Hazel Straub

Although many thoughts go through our minds, they are not all good. Some of them come from the flesh, other thoughts from God and some are evil. We do not need to let all thoughts make a nest in our minds and dominate our thoughts. Many times we believe lies and make excuses and find false security and take refuge in them. Out of this faulty way of thinking, we repeat poor behaviors. We justify and want to argue our points.

Instead  use the powerful weapons of God, to tear down the strongholds or fortresses of negativity, such as worry, pride, and hatred that exalt themselves against God’s truth. We are to take prisoner every thought and make it obey Christ. Then we will live victoriously.

For though we live as human beings, we do not wage war according to human standards, for the weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, but are made powerful by God for tearing down strongholds. We tear down arguments and every arrogant obstacle that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to make it obey Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NET)
