ANCHOR 10: Get dressed daily for battle by putting on God’s armor and taking my thoughts captive.
EPHESIANS 6:13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground.
2 CORINTHIANS 10:4-5 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.
FOCUS QUESTIONS 1.Give an example of spiritual warfare in my life. How can getting dressed daily for battle guard me against Satan’s lies and help me resist the temptations in my life? 2.What keeps me from applying God’s truth in my life to help me with my thoughts and temptations that oppose God and His Word? What thoughts do I need to take captive to the obedience of Christ and how can I do this more effectively in the future?
