KEY SCRIPTURE:2 Corinth 4:4 KJV “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them”.
The mind of man is one of the major parts of a man that devils will like to control. The state of your mind is the state of your being. It is the direction of your life. If a devil succeeds in having one’s mind, then it is in control of that person’s life. Anyone who blatantly opposes the word of God and the salvation of our Lord has been blinded by the devil.
One of the onslaughts of the devil against some people is to obsess their minds. An obsession is a recurring thought urges or images that are experienced as intrusive and unwanted and for most people causes anxiety and distress. The individual may try to ignore them, suppress them with a different thought or action. The demons are most happy when they find humans under torments of varying degrees.
Some of these unwanted thoughts may be immoral pictures or impressions. To others, it is fearful scenes. Others are assailed with doubtful suggestions against God’s word. They keep running through the mind as a flowing current.
HOW does one overcome these evil shots into the mind? The Bible says you must cast them down.
2Corinth 10:5 KJV “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” You would have to say to that devil and your mind that, I refuse this thought and cast it down. You may just say no, and add the truth of scripture concerning that issue.
Tell yourself you, belief what God says and that is what will happen to you. Your command to yourself would bridle your body and mind to stay with what God says.
My mind is an instrument for God and not any devil. I am in control of my mind. I choose what to think and what to say. My life is at peace with myself.
Romans 12:2 KJV” And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.
Philips 4:8 KJV Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
