This is one of those Wows
The mind is man’s mortal enemy
And I might add in my experience our biggest enemy, is our own mind.
I know you thought it was the devil and his suggesting thoughts he gives us on a daily basis.
He is still our enemy and will be for the rest of our lives but, we know that Jesus has the victory over him, and we too have that same victory.
We allow the devil to give us those crazy thoughts, he is only making the suggestions, and we are the ones that are receiving it as truth.
We all know or should know by studying God’s word what is truth and what is not.
Remember, study to show your selves approved unto God, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Divide Truth from lies
Romans 8:6-8 NASB
For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, 7because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, 8and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
The devil suggestions only take a second.
The professionals have said that it only takes a person about four seconds to save something to memory.
This gives you about three seconds to get rid of it before you save it to your memory forever.
With him only giving you suggestions ever so often, maybe in most cases even given you one or two a day and with those whom he bent on bringing down faster, you will receive even more.
But, what we as humans do is think upon it, committing it to memory by playing that suggestion over and over and over again in your minds.
That one suggestion grows into your worst case scenario.
By this time it has consumed your every thought, which made you question the real truth that you knew before you got that suggestion.
Most suggestion is pretty easy to know that they are just wrong.
But, for many of us that are facing difficult times in their lives, it can be a daunting task to know what is right or wrong.
We are not born with right
We are born with wrong
It’s up to our parents to set the roots of right in our lives.
To help us to distinguish between right and wrong and as we grow older we must develop ways, more experience ways of dealing with the right way to go.
Our opponent the devil will come up with better and better ways to try to get us to fall in life.
We must become smarter than he.
By studying God’s word it’s our next foundation to deal with those suggestions that might hurt us, slow us down, and even destroy our lives by taking the devil suggestions as truth.
Our minds are very powerful.
They possess not only that will make us who we are to become, but it holds healing powers for our bodies.
The cure for many things in life that gets in or tries to get inside our bodies is held in the power of the mind to heal the body.
It also, holds enough power to destroy us.
Everything for victory and success is held in your mind.
But also, everything for failure and defeat is their too.
This is why I believe in my opinion that our minds are
Our mortal enemy
But, if used right it’s our greatest weapon.
We give the devil to much credit for our own failures in life.
We are where we are because of our thought life.
If where you live contributes to your wrong thought life, then move.
You cannot change your surroundings, but your surroundings can change you.
Go to a new neighborhood.
If all you see around you is not helping you to think success or be successful, move out to a place where you can grow and become successful.
Remember, after you are very successful, you can always go back there to help others do the same, if they want to.
Life cannot defeat you if you don’t allow it.
When we allow ourselves to think defeat, it’s why we have defeat.
This most powerful tool is also at your disposal to all the rich things in life.
We must do things that will get us in the rich life.
To get started by,
Colossians 3:2 NLT
Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.
You must stop allowing in suggestions that are not a part of a successful life.
You must control them by stopping them the moment you notice they are wrong.
You must change the ones that are already there by pushing them back down each time they come up.
You must feed your minds with positive thinking.
Thinking that will keep you on the right road to success and lead you to it.
Defeat also comes from the amount of time you give to a suggestion or wrong thinking.
In that case Victory and Success comes from the amount of time you spend thinking about being successful in life.
Those people who have a gift spend hours and hours crafting their talents and gifts.
They are the ones that become famous.
You also must develop a no quit attitude on the road to successful living.
And from this development of sticking with it until it happens can be used to defeat and destroy evil or wrong thinking.
You will develop a mind set of tolerance against every evil thoughts.
Ephesians 4:23 NLT
Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.
Life is a forever developing, forever changing, battle driven, and challenging course.
In order to win at it, it starts in developing the mind.
Do not let your mind become your mortal enemy, change it to become your greatest ally.
