“The devil has absolutely no power over us—unless we believe his lies over God’s Truth.
…As children of God, the enemy knows he has no power over us, so he lies and manipulates his way through our thoughts and circumstances to get us out of agreement with God and into agreement with his lies so that we ultimately destroy ourselves—either through a life of devastation and turmoil, or destructive sin.
That is how he fulfills his plan.
The areas that the enemy has held us captive in our minds through demonic forces cannot be dismantled through humanistic tools. We do not wage war against these battles in the flesh; we use our weapons of warfare to cast down all the arguments that are set up against the knowledge of God!
‘The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 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 10:4-5 (NIV)
Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh so when we are taking our thoughts captive and getting them to obey Christ, we are renewing our mind with the Word. We have to demolish the strongholds that are convincing us to live with things the Bible says to get rid of and bring those contradictory thoughts to
These passages that direct us to ‘crucify’
(Galatians 5:24-25) and to ‘cast out’ are powerful and intentional; there is nothing casual in nature with what we are directed to do. Our response to wrong belief systems that have held us captive for too many years should be the same. We have to be intentional and aggressive, removing all thoughts from our mind that want to argue with God’s Word!” —Ripple Effect
It’s time to hold EVERY thought that enters your mind up to the Word of God, and if it’s in contradiction to Truth, it has to go!
No more believing lies that are costing you the ability to live in the freedom and victory that Jesus has already paid for…
Know God’s Truth and stand firm in faith; the enemy will lose all power over you! ⚔️
