This is a scripture that we memorized years ago.
We were taught to take bad thoughts captive, cast them aside, and replace them with good thoughts. And that’s fine.
But here’s a different viewpoint. Put on your positive glasses and then see what it says.
God’s word says “By His stripes you were healed.” Now take that thought captive, and make it obey.
You get the idea.
What if we concentrated on keeping our eyes on Jesus, and make our thoughts obey– instead of keeping our thoughts on “the news”?
Not easy, sure.
But with God, nothing is impossible.
