throwing down imaginations and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;
2 Corinthians 10:5 WEB
U are leading me into deeper understanding & it's challenging, but I love it! Imaginations & high things are not from U - they are things that are against U!
I think this is a description of things I have done! I've tried to figure things out - understand what's going on in my life (imaginations) & then ‘took the bit in my teeth’ & exalted my conclusions (imaginations) into high things - higher than Your teachings!
This verse is a twin to Matthew 16:24,25 “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.”
Help me see every way I'm - going with my beliefs & ways I think that conflict with Yours & help me throw them down & bring them “into captivity to the obedience of Christ”!
I want U & Your ways . . . Not mine!
