There is no doubt that we are in a battle. We want to be willing to do what it takes to give ourselves to the Lord. Standing in the strength He provides, we can do this. One babystep at a time. It isn’t easy, but it IS simple.
Today, can you wait for physical hunger? Just right now, where you sit….can you stop whatever it is you may be eating or planning to go get to eat (I have found that reading this blog may cause people to want to eat!).
Can you identify the thought that is leading you to eat outside of physical hunger? Is it a lie? Is it a “little ‘t’ truth?” Can you apply God’s “Big ‘T’ Truth” to this situation?
3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.
4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.
On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
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.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5
New International Version (NIV)
Are you using the weapons that God has given you? Are you willing to demolish arguments and pretensions that set themselves up against knowing a greater intimacy with God? Are you taking captive your runaway thoughts? Or are you being taken captive by runaway thoughts?
