EQ: Captive Thoughts

RichThink about it: Our emotional issues really start with our thought patterns. We are frustrated because someone (maybe God) is not doing what we expect. If only people would just listen to you, then you could be happy. That’s a run-away thought that needs to be taken captive! So if we “think” differently we will “feel” differently.

How did the Rich Young Ruler “feel” after Jesus told him to sell all he had and follow Him? Sad. Why? If Bill Gates asked you to give him all you had in exchange for all HE had, would you hesitate? Of course not! (“Here, Bill, you can have the $38.23 I have in my checking account in exchange for your $60 Billion Microsoft Empire!”) The Rich Young ruler totally missed out because he wasn’t thinking! The Bible says, “We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB). Grow your EQ by learning how the Holy Spirit frees us from wrong thinking and empowers us to take…Captive Thoughts!
