This is good. We all wrestle with different things. Patterns of thought we have fed keep coming back. We often don’t see them for what they are – LIES! We need to be vigilant and expose them for the lies they are. Gossip comes in this way, and we think it is ok; but it is not! We struggle most with the lies about ourselves or what others think of us. We need to be ready to zap them like the creepy bugs they are and let God fill us with “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (Phil. 4:8)
It really is true: We must be vigilant and ever-ready to lock up those wayward, yet powerful thoughts that try to infiltrate our minds and hearts.
Every. Single. Day.
We also must remember that we can’t do it in our own power. We have to be on-guard and armed with the power of the Holy and Mighty One; the Loving and Redeeming, Sovereign One.
The Only One ~ the Lord Jesus Christ.
