Battles of the Mind - Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Dsc. DD.
Your mind is the battle field. If you can win in your mind, you will see it in your life. That’s why the Bible said: Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
Proverbs 4:23 NLT
If you want to be in charge of your life, take charge of your mind. Your future is directly proportional to the thoughts of your mind, and your thoughts are formed by the information you allow into your mind.
The enemy can’t do anything directly to you but they can attack your mind if you let them. It’s your responsibility to protect your mind from ungodly ideas, information or tricks of the devil. The Bible said: We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 NLT
Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. Ephesians 6:11 NLT
Understand, what we are dealing with here on earth as believers, is nothing else but ideas, lies, strategies, ungodly counsels of the enemy which is the devil, to keep God’s children in permanent bondage, and not witches and wizards from your village. Satan has been defeated already, so he’s powerless over us, but he’s very good with tricks and lies. Many Christians fall for his lies and perish because of ignorance.
If you allow Satan to strategically sell his ideas to you, he will definitely high-jack your destiny. You need to protect your mind against his ideas or any thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God’s Word in your life all the time.
Settle for the word of God, anything else is a trap from the devil. The doctor’s report is an idea against God’s word. Feelings are strategies from the devil to get your endorsement to carry out his evil plans in your life.
No matter how you feel, refuse to meditate or confess your feelings, if it is not according to God’s word. Your confession is your endorsement. Don’t meditate or confess the lies of the devil but the word of God only.
