Trap Negative Thoughts
“The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.”(2 Corinthians 10:4 – AMP)
You must trap negative thoughts that try to enter your mind or those thoughts will trap you. Just as the authorities deal with aliens who try to enter a country illegally, you have to deal with these negative thoughts that try to enter your mind. A Man of God once said that, “you cannot stop the birds from flying over your head, but you can certainly stop them from nesting there.”
Therefore, if you fail to trap a thought, it will trap you. The source of all negative fear based thoughts is the devil. He may plant a thought in your mind that you are going to lose your job, in other words, thoughts of failure. As you dwell on that thought, and make it yours, it enters your heart. Once you recognize the source, you have to deal ruthlessly with those fear-based thoughts.
Any action or behavior first starts in your mind. Though you live in the world, you do not wage war as the world does. The weapons of your warfare are not carnal but spiritual. You have the very power of Christ to demolish every stronghold that has been raised against the things of God. Never forget that though we walk and live in the flesh (in a body), we do not war (fight) after (according to) the flesh (human standards).
