Casting Down Imaginations
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5
Training our mind and bringing every thought to the obedience of Christ is not an easy task, but it is attainable. First it takes a person to be aware of the situation, second it takes a wholehearted commitment. Lastly, it takes perseverance and determination. Change the way your mind thinks. When you get a negative thought, have another one ready to immediately replace it. Say that you are struggling with jealousy or envy; first look up some verses in the bible and write them down concerning the subject. Memorize at least 2-3 verses, now this is what you will be filling that slot with. Eventually, you will not be struggling with it, and it will return less and less. Practice these tips for that nasty imagination. We all have struggled with it. It is best to get it in the beginning stages but it is never too late.
