Power to Destroy False Beliefs

Daily God Walk for Sunday, October 2, 2011

 The weapons we fight with… have divine power to… 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 10:4-5

 Paul is not talking about the power to win an argument with someone. He is talking about two sets of arguments that may, or may not be related. The first set of arguments is the ones used by Satan to keep people believing his lies so that he can maintain his stronghold over them.

An example of an argument of Satan that stands against the knowledge of God is when he said to Eve in the Garden of Eden, “You will not surely die.” It was that argument, along with, “God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God,” which has been a stronghold in the life of every person who has lived since Adam and Eve.

Another set of arguments are the ones formed in our own mind which put limitations upon us. Those arguments are based upon our experience and knowledge. Some of these arguments are good and help keep us safe; like the one that says, “Don’t jump off a high building because you will die.” But, some of the arguments we hear from the voice which speaks inside us place unnecessary limitations upon us.

We tend to relive our past and project that into our future. If we were born into a dysfunctional family we tend to live out those dysfunctions in our adult life. The attitudes of our family toward money, other races, sex, and every area of our life tend to be carried over into our present and often will greatly affect our future. It is that set of arguments we are going to address this month in our devotions.

It is time for us to realize that we have been given divine power to demolish arguments and every pretension which sets itself up against the knowledge of God. Are you ready to tear down some strongholds? Let’s get after it.

 Prayer: Lord, give me the courage to tackle the strongholds in my life by destroying the arguments of my past. Amen.
