Take My Heart Captive Video

Gwen Smith

The devotion today is about the itchy pest of temptation. In order to be strong when we face temptations, we need God’s help. We are able to resist and refocus when we align our hearts and desires to the heart and will of God. That’s what this song is about. Hope it blesses!

Yes, Lord. Please take my heart captive. Amen


Where does this song find you today?

Blessed to be doing life with you,

      Dear Lord,

      You are mighty to save, your mercies are new every morning, and your love is unstoppable. Thank you for your grace. Thank you for being a Shelter and Strong Tower when we need a hiding place. YOU are our hiding place, Father. I pray that you will overwhelm Tammy today with your grace and presence. Remind her that no matter what she is facing that you are there and that your grace is sufficient. Please lead her to a place of purity and holiness through your kindness that leads us to repentance. Restore to her the joy of your salvation and give her strength to rise up on eagles wings as she waits and hopes on you.

      In Jesus’s Name,

    Although, I have not listened to the song, but I believe it is awesome. I need God dearly to come and rescue me from what i am going through. I want Him to come and reign in my life. To come and occupy my heart. To let me trust Him alone.

    ms. Gwen)):

    I am Christian but I am suffering struggle to forgive myself. I sinned and I committed impurities. I was attracted to the same sex to the point that we kiss each other. I want to change. Pls. Help me):

    • Alana says:

      I understand your struggle. Because I wanted to I chose this sin in my mind over serving the Lord. Now I am no longer in His graces. But you my dear have a chance. Keep crying out to Him. He will deliver you from those tendencies. He did for me more than once, the reason I failed was because I chose to which now I deeply regret. However, I have not engaged in physical contact with the same sex in over 30 years. Your desire and mindset can keep you in that bondage. So ask God to change your heart from it and give you a new mind set. I know He is able.

      • Alana says:

        Praise God, my mindset is being changed. No longer do I desire to choose that lifestyle. I shall be made free from its stronghold. I pray for everyone who has been held by that lie that you shall be made free, the chain will be broken. Don’t give up.

    Giving my heart to God, and asking Him to take my heart captive will empower me, as He takes over guiding me through my day.
    Holding on to the words of this song throughout my trials and tribulations will give me the strength to overcome.

  14. Amy Marie says:

    Thank you for such a awesome song!Personally,am going through difficult times,that has led me to the grace of God’s love,& forgiveness that you sing about in your song.Am asking to be lifted up in prayer,for the lord to continue to strengthen my inner character,as I am facing a trial with my ex bf due to sinful actions,on my part,& not having any boundaries in my life,or relationship with him caused me to send him mixed messages from the start.And want to be changed by the lord, is hard but necessary,or I will never be the free,& whole person the lord wants me to be.Self-Control,fear,& anger are my three biggest emotions,that I’m learning I can control these unhealthy reactions,& instead respond,by trust,& obeying ,& being more of a doer of the word,than just a hearer!Thank you,for your encouraging heartfelt song,I want my heart to be captured,by the lord, & am keeping faith he will bring me through.
