Many of the difficult, serious challenges which we humans have are really just in our heads. There, it is powerful demons who create most, if not all, of our personal problems.
Most of us experience demons as the “Vicious Voices” in our heads. There they plant effective, dangerous thoughts. Our personal Vicious Voices, after years of experience tormenting us, cunningly design each planted thought to stimulate a powerful, negative emotion.
That emotion produces, and reinforces, an attitude which, then, results in problematic behavior.
Long ago, the Holy Spirit of God gave true Followers of Jesus an easy way to control our Vicious Voices and severely reduce, if not totally eliminate, the demonic’s influence over our minds.
In His power, God tells wise believers to:
“Pull down every exalting thing that tries to stop you from obeying Me, “God, The One & Only”. Do so by immediately taking captive every negative thought you have and bring it into obedience to Jesus!”
~ Patton Paraphrase of 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
