WHO CONTROLS YOUR MIND

The enemy is after your mind,because he knows that once he is in control of it,you will self destruct. The mind is a battlefield, and if you allow the enemy to be in charge of it,he will plant seeds of doubt, fear,lies,disbelief, and every negative things,in order to render you useless and unproductive. Allow God to cultivate your more mind.
“The mind is a terrible thing to waste!” is the slogan for the United Negro College Fund. The mind is an intricate part of the body because it has the ability to reason, understand, and perceive many things. Some people like to play mind games with others who they believe are less intellectual than they are but this is a trick from satan. Keep in mind that God does not play mind games. 2 Corinthians 1:20 tells us that, ” for all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in him.That is why we say ‘Amen’ when we give glory to God through Christ”.

In Isaiah 26:3 we read that, “the Lord will keep us in perfect peace, whoevers mind stays on Him(God) because we trust in him”. The Bible also tells us this; rejoice in the Lord always…be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus(Philippians 4:4-7).

The first and greatest commandment, Jesus said, is to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind (Matthew 22:37-38). Our mind is a constant battlefield between good and evil and the apostle Paul says it best,(NIV)

 “I do not understand what I do, for what I want to do, I do not do, but what I hate I do, and if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good; as it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. But I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members, what a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in the sinful nature a slave to sin.” (Romans 7:15-25)

The King James version says it like this in (v.25),‘with our minds we serve the law of God but with flesh the law of sin’.

We must not allow sin to get into our minds! To prevent that from happening our thoughts should be thinking of Philippians 4:8 which states; ‘We should focus on whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely and of good report. These are the things we should be meditating on or thinking about’. Saints this is how God keeps us in perfect peace, by meditating on his word day and night. Only through his word will we delight ourselves.

Listen children of God, do not let yourself get to the point of losing your mind before you change your mind. God gives us the spirit of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7), therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, any comfort of love, any fellowship of the spirit, any affection and mercy then ‘fulfill his joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord and of one mind. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus…’ (Philippians 2:1-11).

ADOPT THE MIND OF CHRIST

As children we used to play a game called follow the leader, whatever the leader does or say we do it. This is something every Christian should do; follow our leader and Savior Jesus Christ. This is exactly what Paul was saying to the Philippians in the text, “If there is any consolation in Christ, any comfort of love, any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels of mercies or affection, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind, let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

If we follow Jesus’ example in everything we do we will be victorious, successful, and triumphant in those very things. Our desire as a Christian should be to walk and talk as our leader Jesus did, with all power in His hands. As a matter of fact He gave us exclusive and all-inclusive rights to everything He did and have. (1) In Luke 10:19 He gave us the power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt us. (2) In Matthew 16:19 He gave us the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatsoever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Note that the keys to the kingdom of heaven give us the right and privilege to everything Jesus had at His disposal. (3) In His Great Commission  in Mark 16:15-18 Jesus told us to go out and be like Him and do the things He did. So for this new year let all Christians be like their leader Jesus and act and do the things He did and more. This will fulfill His joy because He told us in Nehemiah 8:10, “…the joy of the Lord is our strength.” And to fulfill His joy Philippians 2:2 tells us to be like CHRIST. And once we have the mindset of Christ we will love our neighbors and others as we do ourselves. And the Church which is the body of Christ will not be divided by denominations, color or creed.

When we present our bodies as Romans 12:1-2 suggests, as a living sacrifice that’s Holy and acceptable unto God, which is our reasonable service and when our mind is not conformed to this world but transformed, then we can activate Philippians 2 by having the mindset of Christ because we will be emulating or following  Him.

John 21:19-22 Jesus told Peter to follow Him and He is telling us the same thing today, nothing else should concern us except to follow Him (Verse 2).

If you haven’t been following Christ examples of how to be,and not to be,start today. If you haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, get started now by going to the salvation page at the top of this blog,and follow the instructions, then allow the Holy Spirit which you receive to lead,guide,and direct you for the rest of your life.
