3 Bible Tips: "I Can't Get It Out of My Head"
1. Recognize the need to forsake unrighteous thoughts.
"'Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,' says the Lord" (Isaiah 55:7-8).
2. Ask God for His mighty weapons to bring our thoughts into captivity.
"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal [physical] but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
3. Replace wrong thoughts with positive thoughts.
"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things" (Philippians 4:8). This includes meditating on God's law and Word (Psalm 119: 97, 148).
