The MIND is Satan’s playground and battlefield. His ultimate goal is to destroy your soul, or in other words; destroy your life. He will try every way possible to get you to fulfill his wicked desires. Our mind or conscience, is where ALL THE DAMAGE IS REALLY DONE. (2 Corinthians 4:4 says,
“The god of this age (Satan) has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
However, he has so many different strategies, you have to be sure to stay on alert and mindful of his tricks. Which are all formulated through deception. He wants you to believe your ways are greater than God’s will, or plan and purpose for your life.
He is the father of ALL LIES! Don’t allow yourself to get lost in the state of confusion because of your lack of awareness.
Our mind and our sanity unequivocally makes up our human existence. This is why Satan attacks our mind, which then has a direct effect on our THOUGHTS and our ACTIONS. In which he then gains or loses control, based on your response to him. Your awareness of him and his strategies, or lack thereof, will determine the outcome of your situations. This is where The Word of God, the TRUTH, comes into play.
Do you believe in the Holy Bible? Do you believe the promises God made? Do you know you have the Holy Spirit within you, there ready and waiting, to guide you and protect you? Do you believe that? Because, it’s true. Or do you believe what Satan tells you about yourself? The one you choose will be evident in your life.
Satan wants you to doubt God’s word and plan for your life. If he can get you to doubt even a scripture, he can get you to doubt anything. You MUST BELIEVE in the ENTIRE HOLY BIBLE, and what God himself says about you. Satan doesn’t want you to know or feel how special you really are. He wants to destroy you any way he possibly can. So he directs your attention elsewhere, on a need or sinful desire. Causing you to self destruct.
If he can fill your mind with everything that you are NOT, you become someone you are not. He does this by hiding the truth in his lies. Manipulating you straight to your death. Satan takes the Word of God and makes it his own, but causing a different effect, sin = DEATH, and of course conflict within the Holy Spirit (God within you) and the flesh.
Who’s word do you believe? It matters. Your life depends on it, because that’s who you will allow to take control. The Holy Spirit is already within you, ready to do it’s job. You have to be aware of God’s presence in your life, his plan for your life, and most importantly; the PURPOSE for your life. Satan can ONLY do what you allow him to. ALWAYS BE AWARE of his presence as well.
When you know and understand that GOD is in SOVEREIGN CONTROL OVER ALL THINGS, we have absolutely NOTHING to fear or be anxious about. Trusting in him pleases him, and gives us peace. We then understand that Satan has no real power when it comes to our God. And our God is faithful and CAN NOT LIE!
Focus on God’s promises and meditate on his word daily. As a believer, this is where our strength comes from. Place your trust in JESUS as your personal savior. When we understand that God is always working in our favor, we can be SURE it’s for our good. No matter the looks of it.
