Battle Of The Mind

on February 20, 2017

Lord, we come before you today thanking you for being such an incredible Father to us Lord.  Thank you for providing for us, watching over us, protecting us and loving us just for who are.  We thank you for the forgiveness that you give us, the mercy that you show us and the grace that you freely supply us with daily.  Father we come to you asking you to demolish any lies the enemy manipulated us into believing and any confusion in our lives that his lies caused us to have. Let us be completely clear from this day on God about what the truth is.  The truth is your word and what your word says about us.  We decree and declare today that no outside force will do our thinking for us.  For God your word is our truth and we proclaim that you have given us authority over the enemy so he does not have any authority or power over us, our thoughts or our mind.   So God give us discernment to recognize all the lies the enemy has told us and every lie people have told us about ourselves and expose them as the lies that they are. Lord today in Jesus Name we bind every negative thought, lie and reminder from our past that the enemy has tried to use to keep us in shame, guilt, defeat, doubt, bondage, fear, worry, anxiety, and low self-esteem.  God we forbid the lies from keeping the truth from us, from taking root in us, and from hindering us to go after the call that you have placed on our life.  God, for everytime that the enemy or someone else tries to tell us another lie,  let us remember 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ.  Because For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places [Ephesians 6:12].  And Lord let us not be double minded and unstable in our ways. For today  is the day that we evict satan from any place that we have given him in our mind and our thoughts.  Fill the places God in our mind where we need more of you.  And where we need to have better thoughts help us to take our thoughts captive and replace them with thoughts and praise to you.

God give us your grace and by the power of the Holy Spirit help us to get free from any thoughts that don’t line up with your word and overcome any lies that we have believed that stopped us from hoping for and living in the incredible abundant life that Jesus died for.

Where we might still have some remnants of our old mindset let us remind ourselves of what your word says in Ephesians 4:22-24 That, regarding your previous way of life, you put off your old self [completely discard your former nature], which is being corrupted through deceitful desires,  and be continually renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh, untarnished mental and spiritual attitude], and put on the new self [the regenerated and renewed nature], created in God’s image, [godlike] in the righteousness and holiness of the truth [living in a way that expresses to God your gratitude for your salvation]. And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you] [Romans 12:2].  We believe God that you live in us and your word is working through us and we thank you for the power of change that is coming into destroy old mindsets, self sabotaging behaviors and bad habits.  We renounce any negative thinking and fix our minds on your word God.  Setting our minds and keeping focused habitually on the things above and not on things that are on the earth [Colossians 3:2].  Philippians 4:6-9 Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].  Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. The things which you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life], and the God [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you.  Lord help us to keep our minds committed and focused on you for we know that you will keep us in perfect peace [Isaiah 26:3].  Lord we thank you that you have already given us the victory in the battle of our mind and over our thoughts.  So from this moment forward help us God to fill our mind with good, pure, wholesome, and lovely thoughts.

In Jesus Name We Pray, Amen!!!
