2 Corinthians 10:3-6 (The Message – MSG)

The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair. But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. 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. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity. Read the full chapter.

What does 2 Corinthians 10:5 mean?

In ancient times, Paul faced enemies who continually used arguments and pretensions against the Christian teachings. In life, we will face times where persons will argue about our faith – this is spiritual warfare. We are called to be continually prepared to defend what we believe, to preach the gospel of Christ and counter false teachings. Paul takes it a step further by taking every thought captive and making it obedient to Christ. How do we do that? As people of God, we are encouraged to worship, fast, pray and study the Word of God. Much spiritual warfare can only be broken through steadfast fasting and prayer. This will help bring our thoughts and actions into submission.

Pray Scripture

Father, fill us with your Holy Spirit. On my own, I know that I can fall easily into the traps of the devil. Build a hedge around my thoughts and hold it captive to be obedient to your will Lord. For every argument and claim that goes against Your truth, fill me with wisdom, knowledge and understanding. All for your glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen


Have you ever been disappointed in God?

Published by godlywoman911

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
