2 Corinthians 10:5

NLT - 5 We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.

We were born with a sinful nature. It is "soulish," that is, consists of mind, will and emotions. That's where negative thoughts come from. Those of us who have been born again are inhabited by the Holy Spirit. We have --- rather, He is ---  the ability to take every negative thought captive, inserting Spiritual, God-worthy thoughts instead.
