Topic: Take Your Doubts Captive [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Saturday March 10th, 2018]
But about midnight when Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; suddenly there was a great earthquake, so [powerful] that the very foundations of the prison were shaken and at once all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened. — Acts 16:25-26
When we start the process of renewing our minds, there will be times when we mess up. God knows we’re not perfect and He’s always there to help us get back on track.
Unfortunately, the devil also knows we’re not perfect, and he does his best to remind us every step of the way.
We can be going along, serving God, doing good, stepping out in faith and then all of a sudden, without any obvious justification for it, we’ll have a day or week when we experience an attack in our minds. Satan will tell us that we’re failures, that we’re not good enough, that God doesn’t love us…the list goes on and on.
Thankfully, God’s Word tells us just what to do in a situation like this. Second Corinthians 10:5 tells us to take every thought captive and into obedience to God. So when the devil tries to lie to you, go to the Word and find the truth that refutes that lie.
When those doubts come your way, don’t get discouraged. Bring them in line with God’s Word. It works every time!
Prayer Starter: God, I won’t let the lies and doubts the enemy sends my way get me off track. Instead, I’ll believe what Your Word says and take those thoughts captive!
