"Negative thoughts can drag you down. Thankfully the Bible provides a guide to change your thought life for the better. Watch this video to learn more. Written and presented by Andrea Chatelain." from video introduction.
Have you ever slowed down to consider what is going on in your mind?
What are you hearing? What are you thinking? What are you believing?
We are under a constant barrage to be informed by words and ideas, worldviews and philosophies. Our personal stories are filled with disappointments, sin, brokenness, and pain. Our hearts and heads have been influenced by lies, deceit, and accusations from the world, the flesh, and the devil.
We need to take captive our thoughts and examine them by learning self control. We must regularly invite the Holy Spirit to witness to us regarding who Jesus is, what he has done, and who I am because of his work through the cross. If the thoughts or beliefs we are having do not line up, the Spirit makes that known to us as he brings into remembrance what is true of God and of me because of the Gospel.
Take up the shield of faith. Believe. Believe in all God has accomplished for you in Jesus Christ." from video introduction
