The battlefield of the mind Part 2
If you’ve read part one of my article “the battlefield of the mind part 1” you’ve learned that God-created each of us in a unique way.
Each one of us in our unique way will process this battle that goes on inside of our head differently.
For example, a choleric will attempt to control the situation…
The melancholy well attempt to think their way out of the battle… but this only makes matters worse.
These tactics so to speak will not stop this battle.
No matter what you or temperament is you need a plan if you are going to win this battle.
Let’s look at how the enemy will get you tangled up in all of this.
Nearly every battle that you have in your mind involves people!
You may have been rejected by someone, you may be angry with someone because of something that they have done to you.
You may be fearful of someone and the way they may react in a situation.
And so your attention, your anger, your fear and any agitation will turn to this individual.
And so the battle begins!
At Fort Worth Christian counseling we have a plan to help you deal with this battle that is in your mind.
But before time began, God had his own plan for us.
How does this affect the battlefield of the mind?
Let’s look at 2nd Corinthians chapter 10 starting at verse 3
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh NASB
Paul is trying to tell us something here…
He’s trying to teach you that your mate…boss…parents etc…are not your enemy.
So…where is this “battle” if it isn’t in the flesh?
Paul says that even though we walk in the flesh the battle that we fight in our mind is not of the flesh but it is spiritual in nature!
Let’s look at vs 4 and 5
4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.
5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God,
and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ NASB
This may seem simple and it is!
Refuse to turn your anger against a another human being…place the anger where it belongs.
Read what Paul says in verse 4…
He is saying that the weapons of our warfare are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses (strongholds)
If you think about it these strongholds can have an effect in your mind.
The final point that I would like to make is the battle is in the spirit realm not in the realm of the flesh.
If you place the blame where it belongs and not against another person your life and you are thought life will change drastically for the good!
