Taking Every Thought Captive – 2 Corinthians 10:5

Taking Every Thought Captive

Do you ever catch yourself worrying or anxious? Our body can operate on auto-pilot. It often does. We breathe and our hearts beat without any conscious thought on our part. Sometimes we can get anxious or frustrated or even angry without knowing what’s going on.

But once we follow Jesus, the Holy Spirit comes to live in us and he gives us a split second. He makes us aware of the thought an instant before we act on it. And we can choose not to act. We instruct our mind.

When we take every thought captive, we grab those thoughts and compare them to what we know about God. We don’t have to chase our wild ideas. We can defeat anxiety. We can give every thought to God and ask him to show us which ones are good, and from him. He will also show us which thoughts are not from him.

Today at work, don’t take everything your mind says at face value. Give your thoughts to God. Ask him to direct your mind. You will destroy some speculations and you will catch yourself acting differently. Trust God with every thought and watch what he does!
