Captive for Christ

 My newest book Victorious Mindset will be coming out this week.  The official release date is April 14th.  To celebrate this new book release, I would like to share a few devotionals from the book.  This book is a 30 day devotional sharing how to have a mind set on Christ and be victorious over the things that we face in life.  The Victorious Living Collection would not be complete without sharing how to have a mind set on Christ.  I continue to enjoy this series of books so much and am so appreciative to God for giving me each book to write.  Thank you God!  I pray that these books will bring You glory and lift the name of Jesus high!

Captive for Christ

[Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away cap- tive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 2 Corinthians 10:5 (amp)

Live It Out

This verse reminds us that we need to take our thoughts captive daily. We cannot dwell on things that are negative or that don’t please the Lord. We need to make every thought obedient to Jesus Christ. This should not happen when we feel like it, but it should be happening daily— every moment of our lives.

I have been studying this verse a lot, and I can tell you it’s rewarding to take every thought captive. I have noticed the difference it is making in my life to truly allow God to help me see His Truth. I’m not dwelling on things that aren’t true. I’m not assuming things from what people say or allowing Satan to twist what someone says.

We have to remember that we can’t change nyone else, but we can change how we respond, react, and receive from others. We can learn how to live from God’s Truth!

Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin. (1Peter 4:1)

Pray It Through

Dear Father God, thank You for continuing to show me how important it is to have the mind of Christ. I know that every thought I think is important to You. My thoughts can lead me down a road of righteousness or a road of unrighteous- ness. I choose the road of righteousness. I choose the road that leads to life. Help me to think more purely ad honestly. Help my thoughts reflect Your Character. I pray for this cleansing of my mind and that You will renew it daily. Please arm me with the same attitude that Christ had, that I may be more effective and productive for Your kingdom!

We must assess our thoughts and beliefs and reckon whether they are moving us closer to conformity to Christ or farther away from it. (John Ortberg)
