In every believer’s life the greatest battle to be conquered is the battle of the mind — our thought life. Satan knows that if you can control a person’s thoughts, you can control their actions or behaviour.
All sin originates in the mind. John in 1 John 2:16 describes this battle as the “lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.” Satan knows that if he can control your thoughts, he can keep you from being effectively used by God. God, by His Spirit, wants to re-train your thought life, to move you from the world’s way of thinking, based on lies, to His way of thinking, based on truth — the truth of His Word.
Paul speaks of this in Rom 12:2 when he says, “do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” As we grow in our Christian lives, we ought to see a gradual shifting from thinking as the world thinks to thinking in accordance with God’s Word.
If you are honest, do you find this a major daily battle for you? Are you continually struggling with your thought life? Are you noticing behavioural patterns in your life that are directly the result of your thought life? Do you, like Paul, find yourself exclaiming, “the things I want to do I don't do, the things I don't want to do I find myself doing — who can deliver me from this body of death”? Then you are not alone.
Join us for what will be a powerful series helping us to conquer probably our greatest area of struggle — the battle of the mind. Don’t miss it!
