Daily Devotion: The Spiritual Warfare of Righteous Thinking

Bible Reading: Philippians 4:1-8

Key Verse: Verse 8 - “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

Key Words: think on these things

If you think there is no spiritual warfare taking place to control your thinking, you probably need to take a step back and think again.

The Bible continually talks about the importance of our thought life.

Proverbs 23:7a, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:”

Romans 12:3, “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”

Galatians 6:3, “For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.”

As you read inside the Word, you find where Satan attacked the minds of Adam, Eve, and Abraham (Genesis 12), just to name a few, and so it is with your life as well. Daily there is a spiritual warfare taking place for your mind.

Recent experiments have been made in which people were fitted with special prismatic glasses. These devices greatly distort the vision so that straight lines appeared to be curved, and sharp outlines seemed fringed with color. Within just a few days, however, the unnatural shapes, tinted edges, and inverted landscapes gradually disappeared, and the world began to be normal again, even though they still wore their optical fittings. The brain was finally able to overcome the false data that came through the prismatic lenses. This adaptability in the physical realm is indeed a blessing. In the area of the spiritual, however, the human mind does not function very well. In fact, man is a sinner whose deepest imaginations are evil, and his thought life produces a world of illusions. He thinks of himself as pure when in reality he is guilty before God.

The only way we can think right is when we think Biblically.
