The theme of my week seems to be about keeping my thoughts captive to the mind of Christ.
Too often I find my mind wandering and wondering.
Does that ever happened to you?
I will admit that sometimes my thoughts aren’t very holy.
Sometimes I want to criticize.
Sometimes I want to judge.
Sometimes I want to doubt.
And sometimes I let my mind go to the “what if “scenarios as a way of escaping from my struggles.
Today’s Jesus Calling devotion is right in line with what I’ve been praying about this week.
“Let the goal of this day be to bring every thought captive to Me. Whenever your mind wanders, lasso those thoughts and bring them into My Presence. In My radiant Light, anxious thoughts shrink and shrivel away. Judgmental thoughts are unmasked as you base in My unconditional love. Confused ideas are untangled while you rest in the simplicity of My Peace. I will guard you and keep you in constant Peace as you focus your mind on Me.” Excerpt January 29th Jesus Calling Devotional. Jesus Calling APP
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3
Lord, today as I work through some things in my mind and heart, I ask that you help me take every thought captive in order for me to keep in perfect peace. I trust You. Help me fix my mind on You.
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…2 Corinthians 10:4-5
