Thought Life Inspiration 1 on 1

Read 2 Corinthians 10:5, Romans 12:2


Spiritual Warfare:                                              
Most spiritual warfare takes place in our minds. Don’t expose yourself to things of this world that don’t line up with Christ character and purpose for your life. When you expose yourself to these type of things you are inviting the enemy into your mind and this brings temptation which can lead to you sinning. Take of hold of any thought that crosses your mind that isn’t of God by simply saying, “God take this from me. In Jesus name, Amen!” Fill your mind with things that are good which are things that come from God. Refrain from situations, relationships, books, movies, TV, clubs, pictures or anything that isn’t good for the mind. Just say NO to sin and YES to God!

Transform:
We must not be conformed but transformed by the Holy Spirit. We as believers must resist ungodly ways of thinking and behavior. The world is ruled by Satan and it is evil. The world is built on human wisdom and values. We as believers must be a light to this dark world. Our minds must continually be renewed and transformed by God so that we don’t conform to things of this world. You may be wondering, “How do I do this?” Spend time daily reading and mediating on God’s word. Your mind will be transformed to follow God’s will for your life. God’s will is perfect for our lives!

1.       Read the Bible (I suggest a study bible that helps you to better understand the scriptures)
2.       Meditate or Pray about the scripture you have read
3.       Join a local bible based church
4.       Connect with other believers to keep you encouraged

  1. I'm glad I read this, this helped me to better understand how to focus my mind or to train my mind to focus on God. It is true the world is Satan's playground and when you go through your daily life you don't realize how many things that you absorb that are not of God and when you rid yourself of them how light you feel and less burdened.

    1. Yes, exactly. No one understood my fast from Facebook last year but it's been almost 7 months and I feel free. Don't get me wrong it's a great site for networking. However, you have to be careful of the things that you allow into your spirit. A lot of times we wonder why our moods change so much during the day.
