Just as you use Caller ID in the natural to screen phone calls, so you should use “Spiritual Caller ID” to screen your thoughts.
In the natural, some calls are annoying, distracting, or even destructive with phone scams from thieves who try to steal your money.
In the Spiritual, some thoughts are annoying, distracting, or destructive because they come from a thief who wants to steal your life. John 10:10 says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…”
In the same scripture, Jesus tells you what His own intentions are “…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” In John 10:27, Jesus also says “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
God showed me that too many of us are taking every “call” that comes into our minds. But we should be selective!
According to the Bible, we should be “casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5),”
When you accept all of these negative calls, they direct your focus away from your Father’s daily business! You can’t get any work done that way.
To make this practical, start screening your thoughts throughout the day. As you screen, you will decide to:
Thoughts to accept (because it’s the Lord calling):
Thoughts to reject (because it’s satan calling)
If you have negative thoughts habitually, then you have a mental stronghold. Remain diligent in rejecting these thoughts because when you do it long enough, they will transfer to your ‘Call block’ list automatically!
Start using Spiritual Caller ID and you will see things begin to change in your life.
P.S. My whole life changed when I chose to believe that God has power to help me with every problem I have – including my weight problem. I dropped from a size 22 to a size 8! Faith starts with believing a word from the Lord. That’s why one of the eBooks in the Take Back Your Temple Program is “Prayers and Promises to Take Back Your Temple”.
