Smashing Thoughts

We use our powerful God-tools 
for smashing warped philosophies, 
tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, 
fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse 
into the structure of life shaped by Christ. 
The very weapons we use are powerful 
for the destruction of the enemy’s strongholds 
and building lives of obedience into maturity. 
2Cor 10
Every thought that isn't in alignment with God's truth
is a warped philosophy I get to smash.
Every loose thought, emotion or impulse
must get wrecked until it becomes a thought, emotion or action
that reflects a life shaped by Christ.
When I have a thought that is anxious, doubtful or negative, 
I want to immediately recognize 
the philosophy behind that thought.
It is erected to assault Truth.
They are not just my "random thoughts."
In this culture, warped philosophies are being erected
that are in direct opposition to the truth of God.
We get sucked into fear, compromise and resignation
that have implications for us as 
individuals, families, churches, cities and nations. 
We are in a war and we have to remember that
 our weapons are not of this world.
We hold up every thought to the Word of God
and destroy every thought that is not in agreement.
These mind battles must be won
so that we will build lives of maturity,
the very structure of lives shaped by Christ.
God, help me to smash any thoughts today
that aren't totally in agreement with Your truth.
Your truth destroys strongholds.
Help me be steadfast, consistent and vigilant.
Make me into a wrecking ball for any thought 
that would oppose Your Truth.
