Don't Listen to Lies...

The enemy of your soul will do whatever it takes to get inside your mind and fill it with lies. We must learn to recognize his deception before we can refute and and resist it.

The only way to fight his lies is with the truth of the Word of God.

Romans 13:12
The night is nearly over; the day is almost here.
So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

When things start becoming confusing or vague- or your mind is anxious, fearful, doubt filled, stressed, or overwhelmed- that is not from the Lord. It never is. The simplicity in Christ is crystal clear, positive, peaceful, faith filled and calm.

1 Cor. 14:33
For God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.

When our thoughts start flying south, we can stop the migration and cry stop! We have to say, "No, this is not happening on my watch." We can put the Holy Spirit in charge of our mind.

God, thank you that you have given me authority over all the power of the enemy. I rebuke the plans of the enemy to torment me with the thoughts of fear, failure, doubt, and depression.
Thank You that You have given me the mind of Christ.

Jesus is the Deliverer who sets us free from our own ungodly, terrifying thoughts.
Because of Jesus, we can change your minds!

When you have tormenting thoughts, or thoughts you know are not of the Lord, do what the Bible says and think only about things that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous, or praiseworthy.
Phil. 4:8

Lord, reveal to me any lies of the enemy that I have accepted as truth.
"Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my mind and my heart" Psalm 26:2

Help us to live with the love, power, and sound mind You have given us.

Prov. 31:25-26
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
