For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 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 Cor. 10:3-5 NIV
How it Happens
Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth and put devious speech far from you. Let your eyes look directly ahead and let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you. Watch the path of your feet and all your ways will be established. Do not turn to the right nor to the left; turn your foot from evil.
Prov. 4:23-27. NASB
- A (Mind) that is undisciplined
- A (Mouth) that speaks pride
- (Eyes) that are exposed to evil
- (Feet) that run to wrong
…you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
John 8:32 NIV
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Ps. 119:105 KJV
Exposure to Truth…
- Reveals (my weaknesses)
- Gives me (God’s perspective)
- Strengthens (my focus)
- Affirms (my faith)
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts; and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.
1 Peter 3:15 KJV
Warning: (Inappropriate Relationships)
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
