Battlefield of the Mind

"For the weapons of our warfare are not physical (weapons of flesh and blood), but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, (Inasmuch as we) refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the (true) knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Annointed One)."
2 Corinthisms 10:4,5

I recently began a Bible study on the book "Battlefield of the Mind" by Joyce Meyer.
It is amazingly inspiring and eye opening.

Most every one of us struggle with issues and the spiritual warfare that constantly bombards our minds so I thought I would begin posting a little tid-bit from this study on a regular basis.

It all begins with our THOUGHTS.

"For as he (a person) thinks in his heart, so is he" Proverbs 23:7

Our mind is the forerunner of all of our actions.

"For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratifuy the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their mind on and seek those things which gratifuy the Holy Spirit." Romans 8:5

If we have a negative mind, we will certainly have a negative life. On the contrary, if we control our thoughts and live by the Spirit and not the flesh our thoughts will be positive.

So many people's problems are rooted in thinking patterns that actually produce the problems they experience in their lives. Satan offers wrong thinking to everyone, but we do not have to accept his offer!!!!!

Are you accepting Satan's offer???

Think about it.

Ponder on these scriptures....

Til next time.
