Someone once wisely said, “Let the mind of the Master, be the master of your mind.” In today’s text, Paul makes a strikingly similar exhortation when he says to us, “bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.”
The mind is the battlefield where we engage in spiritual warfare. When Christ is not the Master of our minds, the devil is able to build in us spiritual strongholds that will enable him to defeat us in every aspect of our Christian walk. But on the other hand, when Christ is in total control of our thoughts, then we are able to live our lives in victory.
Lord, help us today to learn how to tear down the devil’s strongholds in our minds and how to prevent him from ever rebuilding them again,
