Are You in A Mental Battle Right Now?

Written by

Are you plagued with worry, doubt or confusion? Do you struggle with anger or feelings of condemnation?

If you are, do not despair. You are not alone. Every one of us face such struggles in our lives at one time or another and there is a way to come through them.

It starts with knowing the truth and the truth is that there is an enemy that attacks our minds with destructive thoughts. Our enemy, Satan bombards our minds with little nagging thoughts, suspicions, doubts, fears, wonders, reasonings, and theories.

The truth is that we do not need to believe all the thoughts that come into our minds. What we need to do is to believe God’s word more than what we are feeling or thinking. We need to measure every thought by the word of God because the devil puts lies into our minds and the Bible only speaks truth. If what we are thinking does not line up with the word of God it is a lie.

The moment we realise the lies in our minds, we need only acknowledge that they are lies and decide that we will not listen to them anymore. By turning away from these thoughts and asking God to forgive our wrong thinking we begin the journey back to peace of mind and the turmoil can end.

Take the lie and find a truth in the word of God to replace that lie. Then speak out that scripture, meditate on it, think about it and decide to believe it. Ask God to help you as you struggle to keep the truth in your mind and resist the lie and you will see that those worries, doubts, confusion, anger and condemnation disappear and in their place, will come reassurance and peace.

I was controlled by overwhelming fear for many years of my life, but when I put into practice these steps I was totally set free and I have walked in freedom for over thirty years now.
