Most people don't know that our mind is a battlefield. We go through series of battles in our mind everyday and it won't stop till the day we leave this world.
Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) says " For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
The kind of mindset you have will determine how your life will be. The kind of thoughts you have will determine your attitude. Our greatest adversary, satan, is always injecting negative thoughts in our mind everyday and it's left for us to either accept or reject those thoughts.
If the devil can get control of the mind of a person, victory is not assured for such individual. We make the mistake of thinking we can't control our thoughts but that's not true, we can. I will be sharing the ways we can overcome the battle of the mind.
Six Ways To Win The Battle Of The Mind
1. Holy Spirit:
We can't do anything without God. Firstly, you need to pray to God to help you overcome negative thoughts and be rest assured that He will. Just open your heart to Him.
2. Study and meditate:
The word of God is very essential for right living. You need to study the word of God and make sure the word gets to your heart by meditating on it. This will renew your mind and help you to think right.
Philippians 4:8 (NIV) says "And now dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable.Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise."
3. Choose your thoughts:
You can choose your thoughts but you need to be intentional about doing this EVERYDAY. It will be difficult at first, with consistency, you will get results. Just don't give up.
Stop confessing negative words to yourself. There is a way our words control our lives. Replace those negative words with positive confession.
5. Guard your heart:
Stay away from negativity/negative people. Guard your heart jealously. Don't allow things around you get to you quick.
It's a lifelong process but believe you can do it, you just need to start now.
It's not easy at first, but with the help of the Holy Spirit we will overcome. If the Holy Spirit can help me, He can help you too. I would love to read your comments if you have been blessed with this article. Jesus loves you.
