Writers have active imaginations. It’s how we are wired. But someone once said, “Worry is imagination gone wrong.”
Paul addressed the issue of imagination, noting that we must take hold of any imagination that would try to raise itself against our knowledge of God. How do we do this?
Read God’s Words to learn what He says.
When you have thoughts that worry you, fact check them with God. Ask Him, “What do You say about these thoughts that are trying to worry me?”
Release your thoughts to God. Let Him fight for you.
Replace the worrisome thoughts with good thoughts. Thank God for any good thing you can think of. Let gratitude fill every spot where worry is trying to creep in.
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds,
casting 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 10:3-5
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
