It is a constant fight. Cast down every thought that comes from hell. Do not let your mind linger on thoughts from the devil. For a long time, I obviously believed that I didn’t have control over my mind. I would say, “I can’t help it. I can’t stop thinking about it. I’m going to lose my mind.” Have you ever thought that or said that? That’s a lie from hell. God says to “cast down imaginations” and that means that we have the power to throw out thoughts, arguments, philosophies and all lies that contradict the truth. God’s Word is the truth. That’s what I have to think about. It’s a moment by moment process. Don’t just accept crazy, perverse, corrupt, or disobedient thoughts. Question how the thought was able to get in there? What are you watching and hearing and doing? It impacts your thoughts. Guard your heart and your mind; they work together for the good or the devil. Dr.J.
Keep that dragon, the devil out of your head. He is a deceiver, a liar, a thief, and the father of lies. We will not continue to let Satan mess with our minds about what we’ve done in the past. You’re thinking that because what you did was horribly terribly wrong that you’re still tied to it; because it was utterly disgusting or ridiculous that you are those things. We are not what we’ve done!
Recall the most disgusting, hurtful, disturbing things you’ve done. You got it in your head? Now, give it to God right now for the last time. God has forgiven us. And even though we may have forgiven ourselves, every time Satan brings it to our heads, we feel guilty and unworthy.
This is a deliverance post.
With all the Holy Ghost power in me and upon me, I declare and decree healing, restoration, and complete freedom from condemnation in Jesus’s name. We are not our mess. We are not our mistakes. We are not even the things that have happened to us. We are not our past.
Walk in your purpose. Come out of darkness right now in Jesus’s name. You are light now, in this present moment. Dr.J.
We cannot be schizophrenic believers. Sometimes we may have to wait until after God heals us and delivers us from spiritual schizophrenia before we minister to God’s people. We will have the people of God confused and unbelievers terrified about coming to Christ by the way we act. One minute we’re preaching and inspiring and the next minute we’re cussing and fussing. One minute we’re publicly pronouncing our faith, then publicly denouncing it. One day we’re believing God, and the next we’re speaking death. God doesn’t condemn us but He will hold us accountable for our extreme worldly emotional and mental reactions to situations in one minute and our spiritual reactions in the next minute.
God sat me down for a minute until He got me together – not perfect but steadfast. Let God heal you so He can use you. Let God heal us first before we mislead God’s people and those who “would be” God’s people. Kingdom building is too serious to play with. Dr.J.
James 3:1 ESV Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.
2 Timothy 2:16 ESV But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness,
The mind is a perpetual battlefield. If the devil can conquer your mind – what you think about yourself, your thoughts about your situation on your job and in your finances, your fickle emotions – that’s more than half the battle.
Monitor your thoughts. Guard what you allow to “cross your mind.” Even our own private secret thoughts must line up with the Word of God. Our thoughts eventually affect our actions and our faith. Don’t let the enemy control your mind and your mind control you. You have the authority to train and control your mind. Think power thoughts all day long. Think about the new things God has for you. Concentrate on the positive. We’re going higher. Think about that! Dr.J.
