Knowledge: Taking Captive Every Thought

Knowledge: Taking Captive Every ThoughtWe 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 10:5 NIV)

Forward Monday!

A week before Christmas and my 30th high school reunion/gathering happened yesterday. Two red flags taken from our group photo, which both can be fixed by a hair appointment in two weeks and adjusting my mind to lose extra weight. In the past, discussing weight issues and even having a wonderful trainer, I must take captive contrary thoughts for a strong- healthy body.


My problem goes against the body, the enemy knows our weaknesses and will do harm in these areas if we let him. This weight gain began after a very successful- extended fast. I felt I could conquer the world, never returning to sugar again. Then…going through the McDonalds across from our school, I decided a treat for report card day would be a box of chocolate chip cookies. What happened…became a crash addiction immediate, not caring if I gained weight or broke the gains received during the fast. This is how quick the enemy gripped my mind, slowly I finally stopped these cookies. Damage was done…defeat felt. As I am processing this, light is beginning to shine.


What’s happening is a lack of knowledge, very dangerous. If no knowledge of God- then no knowledge of opposing forces, which are arguments and pretensions, strongholds. Same for knowing thoughts that are contrary to thoughts becoming obedient to Christ. When individuals say a person cannot be helped, until the person wants help is the time needed to decide in one’s mind. Knowing God’s Word, illuminates what is contrary. Therefore, making smooth transition into changing old habits, making them obedient to Christ. We can do this! Yes, we can!

Be encouraged!
