Toxic Word Dump

Day 5

Soul Detox

A toxic thought contains poisonous material that can cause sickness and even death. We will identify and reject all toxic thoughts and we will replace those thoughts with God’s truth.

In what ways do you renew your mind and focus your thoughts on God’s truth?

Our reading passage for today is Romans 12:1-21. Click HERE to read.

21 Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.

via Romans 12 CJB – I exhort you, therefore, brothers, in – Bible Gateway.

We conquer toxic (evil) thinking with Scripture (good) thinking. Scripture WILL over come evil WHEN we apply it.  It is so easy to get caught up in thought. That word train starts off with one thought and before we know it we are half way across the country ready to jump off a cliff because of our own failures or ready to push someone else over because of theirs.  Brethren and Sisters this ought not to be so.  Romans 12 says so. 

Cleaning up a toxic word dump is the hardest work we will ever do. It’s slow and it’s painful. What we must decide is — is it worth it?

Ezekiel 18:20 King James Version (KJV)

20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

via Ezekiel 18:20 KJV – The soul that sinneth, it shall die. – Bible Gateway.

In the vernacular of old:  Every tub must sit on its own bottom. I cannot blame another for my toxic thoughts, nor my toxic deeds. Neither can you.
