When you dropped the coffee on your favorite shirt, on your way to the interview, it is easiest to think the devil is after your job or your favorite shirt. Truth is that the devil is after your mind.
Your enemy satan knows this more than anyone else. If he can depress you and spoil your mood, he has then won the battle.
We are made in a way that we learn everyday. Intentionally and otherwise. The Bible encourages, “to be made new in the attitude of your minds.” Eph 4: 23
A person is defined by his mind. Proverbs 23: 7 says, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.”
Your intimacy with God starts with your mental preparation too. Your enemy will try to bring anything and everything to take away your mind from being tuned to God. He wants to fill your mind with so many worries of this world or probably even from family or friends.
That way you will be busy fighting the wrong battle and wont have time to love God and enjoy the garden experience with Jesus. He wants to hurt you, scare you, put fear in you, keep you awake in the night – as long as you are farthest away from Jesus.
*Think*Think* What has the enemy been sowing into your mind? What lies of the enemy have you already believed? Whom have you become bitter with? Have you hardened your heart? Have you stopped praying? Have you stopped enjoying the word of God?
Have you ever felt the enemy was after your life and then you found out that your prayer life had dipped. My friend, this is exactly what the devil wants from you. To respond angrily, negatively, depressingly, fearfully and against God. Get back now. Stay focused. Renew your mind. Replace fear with faith, complains with praise, rejections with worship.
He who walked on the waters, He who won death, He who is seated at the right hand of the Father is for you and intercedes for you.
