THE POWER OF A SOUND MIND
Romans 12:2, 2 Timothy 4:7
The mind is a very potent weapon. Your mind can be an instrument of warfare. If this is so, it can be for victory or defeat in spiritual warfare. God wants His children to have the mind of Christ. The mind of Christ is the kind of mind that has the opportunity to go the way of the world, the mind, the flesh and the senses, but chooses not to. It is the kind of mind that the devil doesn’t know how to deal with; it is the kind of mind that the enemy doesn’t know how to handle.
The way of the sound mind means thinking the way the word of God says you should think regardless of your feelings. When symptoms come into your body, as long as you are thinking about those symptoms, they would be there. Immediately you remove your mind from those symptoms and begin to think about what God’s word says, the good outcome you are expecting, and behave like Abraham who considered not his own body, the symptoms will eventually give way.
To have a sound mind is to come to a place that you can tell your mind not to think on the negative, but channel it to deliberately think on the positive, and it will. You can get to a place where the spirit of a sound mind can take over your mind to the point that your mind can think in no other direction than in the direction of the word of God. That is the place God wants you to be as His child.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, I receive a fresh baptism of the spirit of a sound mind from today in Jesus name.
