We are in a spiritual war with the devil. His attacks focus on our minds, and his strategy is to use suggestions to defeat us in our thought lives. The mind is the arena of faith, and is where we either win or lose the fight. We gain the advantage when we line up our thoughts with God’s thoughts so that we can understand His mindset versus the enemy’s mindset. After we get born again, the most powerful thing we can do is to change our minds by constantly reading, meditating, and speaking God’s Word until westart believing it. Spending enough time inHis Word brings us to the point where we can hear a Word directly fromHim. Hearing straight from God gives us the same victory in this battle that He has already obtained for us.
