5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5
Our mind is a battle field. Every thought must be brought into the obedience of Christ. The way this is accomplished is through meditating upon God’s word. This only takes place as we are in God’s word on a daily basis. When we spend time daily in God’s word we will naturally turn our thoughts to God’s word throughout our day.
The reasons Satan is called the father of lies is because every word that proceeds from his mouth is a lie and deception. We have many different lies and temptations whispered into our minds throughout the day. But the only way to recognize a lie is to know the truth. God’s word is our standard for truth. The daily diligent study of God’s word will simply result in victory and freedom.
