HOW TO OVERCOME EVIL THOUGHTS
2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Everyone has a tendency to have temptations to think on things which are contrary to the will of God.
Even the holiest person on this earth has temptations to think on things which offend God.
The lord Jesus Christ told us to think on good and beneficial things which are worthy of honour.
Any thought of foolishness is sin.
Pro 24:9 The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
The battle between God and Satan is for your mind. Once your mind has been made to think about something without restrictions, the body will tend to act based on the thoughts projected in the mind.
We are supposed to take care of what we think because our thoughts will eventually influence our behavior and cause benefits or hazards to us and to people around us.
The word of God instructs us to take every imagination that arises against the knowledge of God and bring it to the subjectivity of Christ.
Before you commit a sin, the devil will make you think about the sin. It is impossible for you to commit fornication or adultery without first of all thinking about the sin.
That is why the lord Jesus Christ told us whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
Jesus knew that if you can prevent sinful thoughts and lustful desires in your heart you can go a long way in avoiding committing adultery.
Once you develop the habit of thinking good and beneficial things, you will end up preventing evil deeds that would manifest into the physical if they were not first of all prevented in the mind.
The following are some of the ways in which you can use to overcome evil thoughts.
Do not watch or listen to profane things.
The music and the movies that are designed today are made with the intention of perverting peoples mind and putting to the mind of the viewers the most awful things that God does not appreciate.
The saying; garbage in garbage out is real.
Examine your life and you will realize that you resemble the things which you love hearing and watching. Do not watch hellish entertainment programmes, they will plant into you evil thoughts.
Bouncing off your eyes.
If you walk in the streets and the devil walks in front of you a girl with the spirit of seduction, if you are afraid of rebuking immodesty you can bounce of your eyes and look another direction until the girl leaves.
Bouncing off your eyes can be applied in major highways where there are pictures on the billboards of girls dressed in attires of harlots with the intent of causing lust.
Bouncing off your eyes is a technique that can be used to prevent evil thoughts.
Evil thoughts are bound to come. We as Christians are expected to resist them with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Once a thought has been projected by the enemy, we are to resist it and bring our mind to things that are worthy of praise. Resisting evil thoughts is a habit that is mostly done by mature Christians.
The devil sometimes can force evil thoughts to the minds of people. In such cases you can rebuke evil thoughts in the name of our lord and savior Jesus Christ.
We as Christians we are commanded by God to think on good and nice things which please the creator.
Once we develop the habit of entertaining pure thoughts, we will end up leaving a life that pleases God.
