Though the righteous man falls seven times, he rises again (Proverbs 24:16)! In Christ alone do we have victory; victory belongs to Jesus.
The enemy is defeated but still has power if we allow him (Luke 10:19).
When we come to Christ, we are possessed by the Spirit of God, therefore the enemy loses the war against our spirit. So he instead attacks our soul (our mind, will & emotions). If he can dominate/influence/control your mind, he can dominate your life because a believer who is defeated in his/her mind cannot walk in victory (Proverbs 23:7).
Victory in your mind means you have victory in your life & the opposite is true as well. God has given us authority to drive out the enemy and take back control of our minds! You can be in very difficult circumstances but still have victory in your mind.
You are the gatekeeper of your mind; you decide what goes in and out of your mind. You have to choose whether you will allow the enemy or the Holy Spirit to dominate your mind (Romans 8:6).
God has given us a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7)! But are you living with the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16)?
When we pray, we experience the peace of God (that is from His Spirit) which guards our hearts & minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).
The god of this age has blinded the minds of the people of this world (2 Corinthians 4:3-4), but you must prepare your mind for action (1 Peter 1:13).
The strongholds in our minds, where the enemy operates from & dominates our lives, are brought down by the Word of God (2 Corinthians 10:4-5). All is takes is for you to believe one lie from the enemy and you will live in bondage! What lies is the enemy telling you? That you are a failure, you will live depressed, you will never succeed, you will remain sick?
Your circumstances may be real but they are not the truth. Anything contrary to the truth of God is a lie from the devil. When the devil comes with his lies, you need to go to God’s Word to refute and battle against the lies of the enemy.
Today you can win the battle of the mind and live in victory over the enemy by allowing the truth of God’s word to dominate your mind!
