Springing ‘Trap-Thoughts’ Part Two
Let me take you back to a startling verse in Acts 8:22 that says, “Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.” The next verse expressed his heart’s captivity. It says, “For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity.”
Our thoughts either bind us or free us. Binding thoughts come from inside the snare. Freeing thoughts come from our intimate communion with the Lord. Knowing about the Lord versus experiential knowledge.
Ephesians 3:19 Amplified gives us an excellent template. It says, “(That you may really come) to know (practically, through experience for yourselves) the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge (without experience); that you may be filled (through all your being) unto all the fullness of God (may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself)!”
