Mind Combat


It’s what Romans 7 talks about. “When I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love God’s law with all my heart. But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. (Romans 7: 21-23)

Thank God, we only have to turn the page to find the answer. Romans 8, begins by telling us that we are no longer condemned, once we’ve made a decision to belong to Christ. We’re told that the sacrifice of God’s son, Jesus, satisfied the requirement of the law.

The good news is that we have the same life giving Holy Spirit living inside us that raised Jesus from the grave. We’re no longer compelled to act upon our selfish and sinful impulses. Unlike non-Christians, we have a choice to harbor sinful thoughts or let our minds be controlled by the Holy Spirit and think about things that please Christ. (Romans 8:5)

Pray with me today that our thoughts become as familiar as God’s thoughts. As we immerse ourselves in the scriptures, we’ll recognize His methods and techniques. Our thoughts and desires will begin coming into harmony with His. The battle’s already been won , but plays out in your mind every minute of the day.

Have a great JESUS filled day!
