We know what Satan sends is junk mail meant to steal, kill, and destroy.
By Yerinita T. Curtis-Fuller
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 10:5)
When we receive negative words and thoughts from the enemy, we must RETURN IT BACK TO THE SENDER! Those thoughts should never be able to gain access against the helmet of salvation. The helmet of salvation is a part of the full armor of God found in Ephesians 6:17. It instructs us to “take the helmet of salvation” so that it can protect the head of the soldier.
If our head (minds) come under, attack the rest of the body is useless. The destruction starts in the thoughts. Proverbs 23:7 says, “For as he thinks the in his heart, so he is.” This means that what we think, we become. The Word of God, which is the Sword of The Spirit, protects, renews, and sustain our minds. Satan comes to attack the mind, but he starts with a thought. When the thought is not taken captive, access is granted.
We know what Satan sends is JUNK MAIL meant to KILL, STEAL, AND DESTROY. The scripture says, “We demolish the argument.” This means when the argument comes, we recognize it by the Spirit of God, and we take action against it! If we know the thought is not of the Lord, we cannot afford to entertain it for one second! Secondly, the verse says that we take it captive. We place it under arrest to keep it from progressing! Then finally, we make it obey Christ.
I want you to think about the debilitating effects of a migraine. A migraine can shut down the entire body and keep a person from being able to function. It is the same when we allow satan access to our mind and thoughts. We must keep the helmet of salvation buckled tight and in place. If we do this daily, how can Satan trespass against it? He may form the weapon, but it won’t prosper. God has already done His part in giving us the full armor, the rest is up to us! We have to take the helmet and put it on DAILY! Are you feeling depressed? Fearful? Full of anxiety? Discouraged? These are attacks on the mind.
When I was in grammar school, I got ridiculed about my appearance. I didn’t look or dress like the popular kids, so there were not many who wanted to befriend me. I was constantly ridiculed. I had no idea how their words would effect me later in life. When we hear such negative words, we start to believe them. Their words got in my thoughts and in my heart. So for many years I suffered with rejection. The rejection was the access point in which Satan used to destroy my self image which led to greater problems.
Eventually I was exposed to the truth that God loved and accepted me. I may not be able to get back the years that I didn’t love myself, but I do now. God turned on the light of truth, and I was able to see my true identity and beauty. I now minister truth to the people of God using my previous pain. True beauty has nothing to do with outer appearance. The next time a negative word or thought comes from the enemy, what will you do? You must TAKE IT CAPTIVE AND DEMOLISH IT!! In other words, when the devil sends his evil junk mail, you will REFUSE IT! MARK IT UNDELIVERABLE! RETURN TO SENDER!
