Your Mind Is A Battlefield

Your Mind Is A Battlefield

August 19, 2022

The mind is a battlefield. Be aware of your thoughts because they lead to actions and control your behavior, which becomes who you are. You do not have to believe or entertain every thought that goes through your mind. If you are consumed with negative, anxious thoughts, they may not even be your own and be spiritual warfare. The enemy is relentless and knows if he can have your mind, everything else will follow. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the origin of troublesome thoughts. The devil is a liar and if he is whispering in your ear, tell him to shut his mouth in the mighty name of Jesus and take your thoughts captive to make them obedient to Christ! You do not have to live in torment if you have Jesus because who the Son sets free, he is free indeed. PRAY, ARMOR UP, WORSHIP, and RENEW your mind with the Living Word of God! Read the Bible and memorize scripture. It will give you discernment and is your greatest weapon in battle. Focus on God and heavenly things, which brings the joy of the Lord. Worship always puts life back into perspective and reminds us of what an awesome God we serve who is in control and fights for us. A sound mind is a gift from the Lord and part of your heritage in Christ through salvation.

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalms 139:23‭-‬24

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬5 

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you can test and approve God’s will—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:2

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Ephesians 6:16‭-‬17 

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

John 8:36

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Philippians 4:8 

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

Isaiah 26:3

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12


For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Proverbs 23:7

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

Philippians 4:6 

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
