For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:4, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Scripture tells us that there is a battle going on in our minds. Our thoughts dictate our actions. Thats why the enemy will do everything he can to get you thinking in the wrong direction. Sometimes, its not our own thoughts that are holding us back; sometimes its that weve believed the negative things that other people have spoken over us. Those words are like seeds. If you dwell on them long enough, theyll take root and become a reality.
In life, there will always be people telling you what cannot be done, speaking negative things. Too often we latch on to those negative words and develop what the scripture calls a stronghold. Thats a wrong thought or action that keeps us from Gods best. The way you break those negative strongholds is by rejecting the lie, forgiving the person, and embracing the truth of Gods Word. In other words, you have to choose to delete that negative file in your mind.
Today, why dont you take inventory of your thought life? Ask yourself, Where did these thoughts come from? Do they line up with what God says about me? Break the negative strongholds and embrace Gods truth so you can be all that God has called you to be!
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I choose to reject negative thoughts. I choose to reject lies from the past. I break every stronghold through the power of Your Word and embrace Your truth which sets me free in Jesus name. Amen.
