Do you Have Spiritual Caller ID?

By Kimberly Taylor


I love Caller ID. It’s great to see who is calling in advance so you can decide whether you want to take the call or not.

Just as you use Caller ID in the natural to screen phone calls, so  you should use “Spiritual Caller ID” to screen your thoughts.

In the natural, some calls are annoying, distracting, or even destructive with phone scams from thieves who try to steal your money.

In the Spiritual, some thoughts are annoying, distracting, or destructive because they come from a thief who wants to steal your life.

John 10:10 says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…”

In the same scripture, Jesus tells you what His own intentions are “…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

 In John 10:27, Jesus also says:

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”

God showed me that too many of us are taking every “call” that comes into our minds.

But we should be selective!

According to the Bible, we should be:

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 10:5

When you accept all of these negative calls, they direct your focus away from your Father’s daily business.

You also can’t get victory on your Christian weight loss journey!

To make this practical, start screening your thoughts throughout the day. As you screen, you will decide to:

  • Accept the call
  • Reject/Block the call

Thoughts to accept (because it’s the Lord calling):

  • Agrees with God’s word
  • Bears Spiritual fruit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (see Galatians 5:22-23)
  • Meet this criteria: “…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).”
  • Thoughts that lead to good works (Matthew 5:16)
  • Thoughts that correct and teach you a better way (Proverbs 3:12 and Hebrews 12:11)

Thoughts to reject (because it’s Satan/Hell calling):

  • Thoughts that attack your identity and value in Christ (the truth is John 3:16 and 1 John 3:1-3)
  • Lying thoughts (John 8:44)
  • Depressing thoughts (Psalm 42:11 and Psalm 43:5)
  • Anxious/doubting thoughts (Philippians 4:6 and James 1:6-8)
  • Thoughts that stir up to your flesh (envy, jealousy, sexually immoral, thoughts that lead to strife and contention – see Galatians 5:19-21)
  • Unforgiving thoughts (Matthew 6:14-15)
  • Condemning thoughts (Romans 8:1)

If you have negative thoughts habitually, then you have a mental stronghold.

Remain diligent in rejecting these thoughts because when you do it long enough, they will transfer to your ‘Call block’ list automatically!

Start using Spiritual Caller ID and you will see things begin to change in your life.

  • You’re a really good teacher, Kimberly. Analogies are powerful tools. This one was excellent. I definitely have a stronghold (plural?) in this area. I cannot comprehend how I got to where I am. I am well into feeling like crap before I ever stop and consider the sheer quantity and depth of the negative thoughts I allow to roam my “house” – as though they “just are” and as though I have no say in the matter. The end result is like a barn yard full of manure piles! And I stand there, scratching my head, shovel in hand, forlorn…wondering how in the world I am going to get this mess cleaned up and how in the world did it get so deep…and how did it become so normal to be so negative!?! The enemy is a deceiver, indeed. Thank you for your many encouragements. Thank you for your servant’s heart and obedience to your calling. Keep putting the truth out there. Some of us need to keep hearing it if there’s any hope for us to turn around / get off the path that leads to death / make life changes that will be God-glorifying.

    Thank You, Abba – for fanning Kimberly’s flame and giving her words to speak that serve to draw us closer to You. In Jesus’ name…amen.

    • Amen, Angie – thank you for the words of encouragement. I praise God! You know, I think the biggest issue we have is FORGETTING the truths that the Lord has revealed to us. That is why He tells us to mediate on His word day and night. He knows that our memories are very short and subject to deception.

      Speaking of analogies, you just reminded me of one I heard a long time ago:

      I think the biggest issue we have in our Christian walk is FORGETTING the truths that the Lord has revealed to us. That is why He tells us to meditate on His word day and night. He knows that our memories are very short and subject to deception.

      This reminds me of a story I heard a long time ago: Treasury agents are charged with identifying counterfeit bills and keeping them out of circulation. You would think that their training program would focus on studying the various forms of counterfeit bills, wouldn’t you?

      But no.

      Instead, the agents are trained to study the REAL dollar bill. Their goal is to know the dollar bill so intimately that they can spot a fake a mile away.

      That is how we should be with our minds. Our minds WILL occupy themselves (go to work on something) every day. The question we must always ask ourselves is: What is your mind working on?

      We are creative beings – just like our Heavenly Daddy. Our minds are creating future results in our lives right now.

      * Why not put them to work on studying God’s truth rather than the enemy’s lies?

      * Why not put them to work on making our dreams a reality rather than running from our fears?

      Let’s mediate on God’s truth so much that when the enemy tries to get us to believe and live a lie, we reject it outright.

      May we as God’s people commit to living the truth so that we can finally experience the freedom and blessings God has for us!

  • This is so timely for me. I will save it to my desktop to read when needed. As I was reading I realized that at the beginning of this year I started listening to the negative thoughts and even repeating them to myself. That I was really down on myself because HOW DID I GET HERE again. I still don’t know the answer to that question but my trust is in God and I believe that there is more garbage that God’s is ready for me to get rid of. So I can give thanks in everything
