The weapons we use in our fight are not the world’s weapons but God’s powerful weapons, which we use to destroy strongholds. We destroy false arguments; we pull down every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God; we take every thought captive and make it obey Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

We seldom think about our thought-life. Our minds are constantly creating a stream of thoughts, and the flow can be so steady that we forget that this process is even taking place. Whether we realize it or not, we each have a thought-life that has a powerful impact on the rest of our lives. This thought-life is so powerful that it even possesses the ability to become and idol—and it frequently does.

All of us are guilty of allowing certain thoughts to distract us from God. Perhaps there are memories that God has told us to abandon, yet we allow our minds to go back to them. Maybe there are fantasies about the future that He has declared “off limits”, yet we indulge in them anyway. If we are to grow in our walk with God, we must understand that we are choosing mental idolatry when we choose to think thoughts that lead us down the path of mental disobedience.

The Bible characterizes these thoughts as rebellious renegades that need to be immediately captured and made to bow before the throne of Jesus. We accomplish this by making Christ the supreme object of our thought-life. Scripture teaches us that we are to use our thought-life to a holy advantage by setting our minds on the things above (Colossians 3:2) and thinking on those things that reflect God’s character (Philippians 4:8–9). The more we do this, the more sensitive we will be to th0se stray thoughts that only distance us from Him.
