We are constantly being informed by words and ideas, worldviews and philosophies. Our personal stories are filled with disappointment, brokenness, and pain. And our hearts and heads have been informed by lies, deceit, and accusations from the world, the flesh, and the devil.
The enemies of our soul tell lies about God to tempt us, to breed distrust in relationships to divide us, and to rehearse accusing words in our ears to destroy us. What kinds of words are you hearing in your mind?
Part of the Warfare believers engaged in is the Warfare of the Mind, and to Wrestle against the forces of the Mind, believers must approach it spiritually. The human mind is a great weapon in the hand of God and Satan. Satan manipulates it to make a man an instrument in his hand, he uses a lot of forces to hijack it. To conquer the forces that Wrestle against the mind, it must be the one that is empowered by God from the spiritual realm.
As you capture thoughts, invite the Holy Spirit to bring them into submission to Jesus — to the truths of the gospel. We have been given the Spirit to make known the truth about Jesus and to convict us of anything not in line with the gospel.
