Four Principles For Winning The Battle For Your Mind

Four Principles For Winning The Battle For Your Mind

  • Don’t believe everything you think.

We naturally feel that if we think something, it must be true because it comes from within us.

Just because you think something does not make it true.

The world puts suggestions in our minds that are false, and we are bombarded with those false ideas all the time.  Satan makes suggestions all the time.  Everybody has a mental illness called sin.  Our minds are broken by sin, which means we cannot trust even what we think ourselves.

Jer. 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked who can know it?”

We have an amazing ability to lie to ourselves.

We tell ourselves that things aren’t as bad as they really are.

We tell ourselves that we’re doing okay when we are not doing okay.

We tell ourselves it’s no big deal when it is a big deal.

The Bible tells us that you cannot be trusted to tell yourself the truth.

I John 1:8 “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

That’s why you need to question your own thoughts and teach others not to believe everything they think.
