Walking in the Spirit, not flesh
Sometimes it feels like we are in a real battle; a battle of the mind and a battle of the flesh. The enemy knows our trigger points and how to attack us where we can be most deceived. He is never in a rush and is always willing to wait until we are weak in our flesh to move. Coming only to steal, kill and destroy. (John 10:10)
But our God only comes that we may have life and life more abundantly!
In order for us to know war, we have to understand the battle. Our war is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, against the rulers of this dark world and against spiritual host of wickedness. Ephesians 6:10.
Do you feel like you are in a battle today? A battle of the mind and a battle of the flesh? It is important when you feel that battle coming on in your mind to take your thoughts captive and ask God to help you with your thought process; to give over to Him the dark thoughts that you have been carrying around and the war that is going on inside. If your battle is of the flesh, well it first had to start as a thought in your mind.
Hopefully now you can understand how important it is to commit your mind to the thoughts that God has for you in order you to be free in the Power of Jesus. If you can resist the devil, he will flee! James 4:7.
