“I hear that train a rollin…it’s rollin round the bend, and I ain’t seen that sunshine….”
Our thoughts are like a boarding pass to a train ride…
Or, a train wreck.
They call it a train of thought for a reason.
The Word tells us in 2 Corinthians 10:4 to take our thoughts captive.
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Pow’s, the Holy Spirit had shared with me before.
We are to take those illegal thoughts and bring them, captive, to Jesus.
It’s much easier to bring one, thought, captive, before it becomes a stronghold.
I also recall the Holy Spirit showing me that I had been on board the loc- emotion for far too long.
We can be on a joy ride one day and off the rails the next.
All because we don’t take thoughts captive.
I’ve been battling condemnation for a bit the past couple of days.
As I ran while ago, I heard Father say, “who told you that?”
I had been playing negative thoughts and situations over and over, as if it were the truth.
Unless God told me what I was rehearsing, it was illegal and needed to be arrested.
Taken to Jesus.
He said we are loved.
He said that we are more than conquerors because of all He conquered.
He said I’m never without hope.
I had heard of a little girl last week that attempted suicide.
We prayed, as a church.
But she didn’t leave my mind.
I had on my heart to go to the hospital Friday and I reasoned it away that with all the regulations and reasons that they wouldn’t let me in.
But I didn’t even try.
That morning I woke up with the George Straight lyrics, Baby, Write Thus Down… on my heart.
“Baby, Write this down, take a little note..
To remind you in case you didn’t know,
Tell yourself I love you and I DON’T WANT YOU TO GO,
So write this down.”
Write down, and fulfill, His Love for us.
Did she know that?
I missed it that day.
But I’m not missing it today.
I’m here. In Christ’s stead, beseeching you to be reconciled in His Love for you.
There is not only Hope.
There IS freedom.
You were meant to be a King’s Kid.
He’s saying, “Be Mine.”
No greater Love has ever been displayed.
He did it for you.
