#21 Arguing In

One of the most
devastating things you can do is to allow an argument to take place in your
mind when the other person is not present. 
These one-sided arguments are where you provide both sides of a mental
disagreement. These unregulated disputes will eventually separate you from the
very people God wants to use to help you discover your destiny. This is why
darkness extends these invitations to us – unless confronted they will
eventually cause suspicion and separation within the Church.

The scriptures tell
us to take our thoughts captive and make them obedient to Jesus Christ. We need
to arrest and handcuff these thoughts before they are allowed to sow their devastating

To make your
thoughts obedient to Jesus is accomplished by training and disciplining your
thinking to reflect the heart of God. 
God loves those with whom you are having these mental arguments and He
wants you to start seeing and speaking about them – in your mind – as He sees and
speaks about them in His. Once your mind is convinced of God’s heart for
another person your speech and lifestyle will soon follow confirming your new
way of thinking.
