2Corinthians10:5 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.
