The Lord wants us to saturate our minds .. with the Word of God – to come believing. That should be the desire of our hearts – that’s our faith …
The mind is the battleground
Ever since Satan gained access to it in the garden the mind has been the spiritual battleground. The mind was for man to fellowship with and receive revelation from God, ever learning of His ways (hence it’s immense potential capacity), God intended to have sole access but Satan penetrated mans mind with the arrow that questioned the Word of God – “hath God said?”.
Through the cross God not only covered sin but also reconciled man to himself by renewing the spirit of man – the new birth, and providing for the saved man’s body and mind thru’ healing and deliverance in this life – the deeper life.
God has chosen to reside in that most corrupt area of man, his heart, setting forth deliverance from there. From the moment of birth I have been surrounded by a world of sin and corruption, subject to negative parental influences and subject to binding ancestral legacies. I have been sitting week after week under a message that is fundamentally about deliverance. Much of this deliverance is centered around wrong thinking majoring on the negative and opposed to God’s promises. God is setting the captives free through the anointing and revelation of His Word.
54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Proverbs 23:77 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.“Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.
An Open Door To The Word Of God
God is getting to my heart and when He gets to my heart He gets to my faith, these are mysteriously connected and intertwined. The sin and disease prevalent today are a result of what man has sown over the centuries. Our only means of preservation is in that spiritual ark. God is a God who provides but in that provision we have to do it His way. There is but one way to freedom and for God’s provision to be worked into our lives It is a narrow way – a way that man in his pride will not go. The broad way is Satan’s biggest deception over the religious world.
Spirits attack the mind, every thought opposed to God’s standard or Word is probably a spirit and we will eventually take on that which we entertain or dwell upon.
…The mind is a field into which I choose to sow bad seed or good. Do not entertain the negative else it will bring in depression and oppression…
Cast Down Wrong Thoughts
Persistent thoughts opposed to the Word of God are ‘open doors’ behind which a satanic power operates. The closing of a door (called deliverance) often enables healing. God has to get a man or woman’s mind right before healing can take place. Saturation of my mind with God’s seed is a vital principle in my deliverance; my mind must continually be open to receive an overflowing of truth to provide access for God to work
..As soon as I wake up this renewing process must begin – remember it’s a battle – the enemy wants to take hold of your attitude and thinking right there and then – but you have a choice…
Confess “this is the day I walk with God……” else the enemy will take hold of your thinking right there. Sing choruses in the bathroom; come to meetings believing that God will flood me with His Word. Spend quality time casting down the negative. The only way to expose the tares is by saturation with God’s seed.
God is working in my heart to change it from stone to flesh. A stony heart will not want to cast down wrong thoughts but rather to entertain them to gratify flesh and pride, allowing them to play theatrically on and in the mind. Come clean in brokenness, confess wrong thoughts as opposed to God and an abomination in His sight and believe in His promise to change my heart and bring deliverance from Mt Zion in the last days.
2 Corinthians 10:5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
Once God’s grace has worked in me that hate for wrong thoughts they may be evicted or starved out and replaced by a flow of faith in those areas, to the end that all thoughts are obedient to Christ.
Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
My mind is to be renewed in line with my renewed spirit and my delivered heart of flesh. Then I will be able to discern God’s will in these last days.
The mind must be delivered to receive the perfect will of God. All doubt, fear and unbelief, these demonic forces speaking paranoia to the mind, must be removed for me to hear what God is saying.
Meditate on These Things
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
Deliverance in the mind facilitates meditation which is essential for my walk with God, waiting on Him in stillness. Through meditation on the positive I am kept balanced and sane under powerful external influences. Mental attitudes play a big part in my physical and mental health.
I have to decide what I want to think. Can I believe that God can take control of my thought life? From this I will become free to flow out to others.
