For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 NKJV
Silence can be a beautiful thing. A time for rest, reflection, and planning. But these are moments that if we are not careful will be used by the enemy to attack our peace and identity in Christ.
If you are someone who fears being alone or having moments to get lost in your thoughts because it takes you into a negative space it's important that you know your authority in the spirit. The Scripture says that we have the ability to take every thought and make it obedient to Christ. You can make your thoughts and every other thing exalting itself against the knowledge of God become subject to what the word of God says.
When thoughts come up that make us want to travel down the wrong path, we must respond with the word! When thoughts come up that challenge who we are in Christ, we must respond with the word! God says we are redeemed, delivered, and set free. He says that we are victorious and fearfully and wonderfully made. We are the righteousness of God and our silent moments don't have to be hazardous to our physical, mental, and spiritual health! Cast down every negative thought and bring them into subjection under Christ! Use the word to keep you safe in your silent moments! Speak the word over your life!
How often will you have to do this? As often as it takes! Don't give up until your thoughts line up with God’s thoughts! When we get our thought life in order most of the battle is won!
Remember you don’t have to fear those silent/alone moments! Christ has you!
Have a great day!
