Paul warned New Testament believers not to become weary and faint in their minds, due to the great opposition and persecution they were facing. He told them:
...let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. (Hebrews 12:1-3)
The Greek word for faint means “to unloose, relax, and make weak.” Satan wants you to become so overwhelmed by your circumstances, so weary fighting the battles that you face day-after-day, that you faint spiritually.
The enemy wants your mind to be spiritually weak so that you will: -let up on you prayers.
-reduce the time you study the Word. -stop resisting his attacks. -yield control of your thoughts to him. -stop casting down vain ideas.
You may be at this dangerous point right now where you are weary and have fainted in your mind. You may be so worn out from spiritual battles that you are ready to give up. You may be tired of resisting temptation. Your mind may be in constant turmoil. You may be depressed or severely oppressed by the enemy.
Jesus warned about the care of the world saying, "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares" (Luke 21:34).
Whatever strategy Satan may be using to attack your mind, don’t give in! God has made it possible for you to walk in one-hundred percent victory over all the power of enemy. The moment you faint in your mind and stop resisting his attacks, you are surrendering yourself into his hands. You are defeated only when you fail to fight.
It is time to prepare your mind for aggressive action. Do not remain passive. To win the battle of your heart and mind and live in one-hundred percent victory over every attack of the enemy, you must have a strong, powerful, disciplined mind that is controlled by the Holy Spirit. Allow the Holy Spirit to take complete control of your heart and mind.
