How To Win the War In Your Mind

Wisdom Key #26: “You Will Never Fight A Greater battle On The Earth Than The Battle Of The Mind.” Your mind is a battle field. It is where you gain the victory or suffer a defeat concerning things that matter to your joy and happiness. The big question is this: How do you win the war in your mind?

When Satan wanted to derail Adam and Eve, he attacked their minds with contradictions and lies. Several years later, he attempted the same tricks on Jesus when he tempted him three times (Matthew 4).

battle of mindWhy does the human mind fascinate the devil so much? This is because your mind is the gate-way to your heart (your spirit); the immaterial, spiritual and core essence of you. No wonder the bible says that, “Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life” (Proverbs 4:23). The devil knows that if he can win the battle over your mind, he can go ahead to downcast your spirit.

There is never going to be a day when there is no ferocious battle going on in your mind – be it the battle over your health, or the ones over your relationships. It could be a battle concerning your spiritual life, finances, children, husband, wife, career, employment, emotional life or even concerning your values and beliefs.

The purpose of the enemy is to sow doubts, fear, confusion, disbelief, weariness, depression, anxiety, hopelessness and despair into your mind, until you discard your faith. Why? Because the greatest battle of the mind is over your faith in Christ. The devil never wants you to maintain faith in Christ. That’s why he will attack anything in your life, including your health, finances and relationship, just to be able to get you doubt God and discredit His Word.

But if you are to win the battle of the mind, you will have to constantly fight with the powerful weapons of God. Since the battle of the mind is never physical, it therefore must be fought with our spiritual weaponries, according to the instructions of God to us.

The bible says, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ,” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).

Jesus is our perfect example, and that’s why the bible says we should look on to Him always – the author and finisher of our fait… (Hebrews 12:2). If this is so, we must study how He won the battle of the mind against Satan. In Matthew chapter 4, we found the answer – “It is written, it is written, it is written…”  Those were the weapons that Jesus deployed to conquer the schemes of the devil.

Jesus drew the sword of the spirit each time Satan attempted to win the battle of the mind.

The Word of God is sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17). It’s also an incorruptible seed (1 Peter 1:23).

Therefore, concerning the challenges you are currently going through, you will have to draw the sword of the Spirit and reach for the shield of faith, with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

  1. Find what the Word of God says concerning the mind battle you are fighting right now.
  2. Put the Word in your mind and in your heart constantly to displace satanic suggestions and release Divine intervention.
  3. Believe with your heart in faith that the battle has been won.
  4. Abide perpetually in the atmosphere of thanksgiving.
  5. Wait patiently for the physical manifestation of your prayers.
