♥ Battling our thoughts ♥

I was reading this very encouraging post from Bible love notes and it is powerful!!!  Scripture is our weapon in battling intrusive and negative thoughts and thinking  {2 Corinthians 10:5}  which we as Christians battle, the more we equip ourselves with the armor of God  {Ephesians 6:13}  and saturate our minds with Scripture, holding up the powerful shield of faith that the Lord gave to us  {Ephesians 6:16}
Then we are ready for battle!! quenching all the wicked darts of the evil one.
I heard John Hagee say .... read the end of the book!  We win!! :)

We read in " Corinthians 10:5 .... "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." {NIV}

Take time daily to memorize a Scripture, everytime a negative thought comes keep speaking the word of God over and over in your mind, say it out loud, write in on a piece of paper, pin it to "the fridge" 

Here are some of my favourites:

Colossians 3:15 {Amp}

And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].

Psalm 94:19 {Amp}

In the multitude of my {anxious} thoughts within me, your comforts cheer and delight my soul!

Isaiah 26:3 {Amp)

You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because He trusts in you.

Have a blessed day ♥
