“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” 2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV)
When “high things that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God” begin to enter your thoughts – telling you that you are not going to get well, that you will be on the same level next year having no form of positive progression. You are to immediately speak out using your God-given authority, “No! You are lying. You are not talking to me. I’m not going through this mess of confusion and disappointments all my life. I know God has ordained a better life for me – a life full of abundance!”. Never spend your time engaging nor entertaining any of those lying thoughts- instantly cast them down.
The enemy’s main strategy is for you to constantly reflect on the false thoughts he gives you. If satan can keep you thinking upon those thoughts, you will surely have them manifested in your life. However, you have been equipped with the knowledge of God so you are covered.
Unfortunately, most Christians do not have the knowledge of God, and by not having God’s knowledge they will inevitably take the enemy’s knowledge. The knowledge of God exposes the enemy’s lies; that is why the Bible says, “When you know the truth, the truth will set you free”. Therefore, when the enemy comes lying to you with false, imaginative thoughts; you, having God’s knowledge, are to come against the enemy with the truth. As you see in verse 5, God said this…. thus, you have to do it!
