The world has multiple ways of thinking and many different philosophies, but not all of those philosophies are in line with God’s Word. Mankind has developed its own peculiar set of values and standards, but because the devil rules this world, secular ways of thinking have become tainted. Letting down our guard leaves us open to the high thoughts of the world, which can take over and hijack the thoughts of God. Our thoughts are powerful; therefore, we must exercise caution in what we think about. We run into trouble when we begin to trust in our own thoughts and emotions instead of God’s Word concerning our lives. The world does not understand the Word of God; we stumble when we let worldly philosophies, instead of His Word, influence our thinking. We stay safe when we let the Scriptures guard and protect our minds.
