The mind is like a wild mustang, running free, one thought triggering another in no real order. Still, the Bible says we must control not just our eyes, but our whole bodies:
You are not your own; you were bought at a price.
Therefore honor God with your body. (I CORINTHIANS 6:19-20)
And not just our bodies, but our minds as well. The Holy Spirit, through Paul, is clear on this:
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)
This is a jarring verse, Reading it, it’s easy to wonder,
Take every thought captive? Is that really possible?
Lord, with Your help, I can and I will
Take every thought captive to make it
obedient to You.
