// Read II Corinthians 10:1-5 //
By the humility and gentleness of Christ, I appeal to you—I, Paul,who am “timid” when face to face with you, but “bold” toward you when away! 2 I beg you that when I come I may not have to be as bold as I expect to be toward some people who think that we live by the standards of this world. 3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 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.
Some high things want to exalt themselves above the knowledge of God. For example the Word of God says ‘I shall not die but live to declare the works of the Lord’ (Ps. 118:17). But there is a repeated dream of death that wants to exalt itself above this knowledge of God. It is a battle! That dream and its knowledge must be cast down with the Word of God until the Word of God prevails. This is how to fight the battle in the mind. You forcefully insist that the Word of God prevails in your life.
PRAYER: Use the Word of God to cast down every high thing that wants to exalt itself above the knowledge of God.
