THE CYCLE OF DEFEAT



God has planned for you to have a sound mind that is one-hundred percent victorious. He wants you to have a well-disciplined mind that is controlled by the Holy Spirit.

Developing this kind of mind does not happen automatically. To have a well-disciplined, victorious mind, you must:


-Take aggressive action against Satan’s attacks–recognize, resist, and reject all thoughts he tries to plant in your heart and mind.

-Continually bring every thought into captivity. -Be renewed in your mind by “putting off” the old nature with its carnal thinking

and bringing your thoughts under the control of the Holy Spirit and into

conformity with the will of God. -Fill your heart and mind with God’s Word and the knowledge of Christ.


Satan’s objective in attacking you is to wear you down until you become spiritually weary and faint in your mind. He knows that if your mind is weak he will be able to gain access to your life. Satan will try to make you so tired of your circumstances and your struggles that you will just give up.


No doubt, you have fought heavy spiritual battles before, but they will not compare with the battles you will face during the end-times. Satan will intensify his attacks on the saints of God and will try to literally wear them out (Daniel 7:25). Unless you are aware of what is happening and prepare yourself, you will not be able to stand in victory. You will live in a continuous cycle of defeat.


Satan will attack you through your circumstances so that you will become caught in a cycle of defeat. He will bombard your mind with fear and doubt until you become spiritually weary and faint in your mind. Then you will become discouraged, lose hope, and resign yourself to accepting your circumstances as they are. Your discouragement may then lead to depression where you will be spiritually immobilized.


Take aggressive action against Satan’s attacks on your mind today. Continually bring every thought into captivity. Renew your mind by putting off your old carnal thinking and filling your mind with God’s Word.


Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8)


PRAYER:

My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
