Seems like every day there is something new stirring up within the mind. The enemy likes to keep our mind in the muck and away from God. He “Satan” knows that if our mind is set on the kingdom of God, and far from the worldly things, then he, himself is in big trouble. God has already won the battle for us, through his son Jesus Christ. If we can just focus on Jesus, (Our Anchor) then the enemy really has a hard time attacking the mind of a Christian. BUT if the enemy can keep our minds worrying about everything else other than the Word of God, then he has a better chance of gaining a child himself. We CAN NOT serve two masters. We must choose to either be a child of GOD or walk into the enemy’s trap and fall with him, becoming his child.
The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy.
The battlefield is truly in the mind. Christians battle this EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. The struggle is real, and if you’re not prayed up, full of the word, and ready for this battle, then you’re going to struggle in battle.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
I, myself struggle with the mind. It will never be easy. Jesus said we will have trials, and persecutions. Those who endure and remain faithful will receive the crown of life. Jesus is my anchor! Nothing on this earth could ever amount to what Jesus done for us all… If he could endure the beatings, and the cross. Then I can endure the battle!!!! Be brave, and remember God, himself will always be with you. Love you guys and hope you all have a Blessed day.
