Praise Jesus, I hope you are doing great. Thank you for reading through our blog. I have been thinking of how the devil has been able to manipulate and take control of most Christians regardless of them being saved.
We may have many reasons to this but the greatest gateway to the devil having access to our lives is through our minds.
Our minds are the gate way to our lives. The only way for us to overcome the evil one is by ensuring that our minds are well governed to avoid manipulation. One important aspect for you to understand is that the mind is the eye of the man.
What the mind sees and accepts shapes the life of a man.
“The devil’s aim is to have more blind minds rather than blind eyes.” A blind mind does not perceive what God has in store for us. A blind mind is surrounded by darkness. The devil uses this darkness to create an illusion that seems real and true than the truths themselves. Without being led by the Spirit of God, one may fall into this trap.
WHY SHOULD YOU GUARD YOUR MIND?
Romans 8:6 – “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
Carnality of the mind leads to death. In other terms, an evil infiltrated mind leads to destruction. What occupies your mind shapes your life.
When carnally minded, you cannot see things in God’s perspective. A carnal mind exalts the flesh and by so doing one becomes an enemy of the truth.
2nd Corinthians 4:4 – “For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds (that they should not discern the truth), preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image and likeness of God.”
When you fail to guard your mind, the devil infiltrates you. A polluted mind as no place for God. For you to experience God, discern his truth and be able to see the light, your mind has to undergo rejuvenation.
Never allow your mind to accept trouble, negativity and suffering as a normal way of life. You have to come out of these cocoons of bondage.
Ephesians 4:23 – “And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind (having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude).”
You are a product of your thoughts. You will never accomplish or enjoy what you cannot picture. RENEW YOUR MIND!
Brethren, you will only reach where you mind reaches. We fail to accomplish great things in life because we are trapped within the dwarfness of our minds. THINK BIG!
This is the good news brothers and sisters, “The expectations of the righteous cannot be cut off” . Your expectations are as a result of what your mind sees. What you perceive in your mind forms part of what you want to accomplish. God is faithful to answer prayer.
God will only give to you what you can see. Let not your mind lock you out of the blessings God has in store for you. Guard your mind from every deception of the evil one.
