Guard YOUR Mind

And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

Jesus knows that our minds need to be kept because THE DEVIL MOVES THROUGH THE THINKING PROCESS. If you let him dominate your thought life, he can defeat you but you have power to fight him. You have power that most believers don't even know about. The Word of God tells us that "so at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth" (Philippians 2:10). Satan is a liar and he works carefully, he often starts with a thought. He may suggest that your headache could be something else. Next he will give you some suggestions of what he thinks they are and within minutes you may find yourself complete ill. Not too long ago, a group of us went to pray for someone who was convinced that she was dying. She confessed that she knew for a fact that the end was near. She was troubled, living in constant panic and afraid to go to sleep. It wasn't until months later that we found out she never actually went to the doctor. She diagnoses herself with the help of the deceiver (the devil). She lost a high paying job because of attendance issue. We kept praying for healing when we should have been rebuking the devil out of her mind. When the devil seems to take control of your mind you must run him out by calling on the name that is above all others, the name that gives life, the name of the savior Jesus Christ. When you have peace in God in doesn't matter what the doctor says anyway. Remember that our heavenly Father is Jehovah Rapha (Exodus 15:26).

JEHOVAH-RAPHA IS THE HEALER OF ALL. God's healing power is not limited to the body alone. It covers the mind and every area of life and if you could get a hold of this, the devil wouldn't have any influence over your thoughts. One of the things I notice early on in life was that we pay more attention to the negative than the positive. For instance, when someone in my family gets a great position or finds a dream jobs none of us hear about it but when one loses a job, the whole world will know. We have to celebrate the positive. Why is it necessary to celebrate the works of the devil and not the multiple victories orchestrated by our Heavenly Father? It is because we think of the devil more often and more highly than we think of God. We have to walk in the light of what we know. You can be release from oppression to your body and your mind. As a child of the Omnipotent God, you can exercise spiritual authority. You can order the devil out of your life by resisting him, and the word of God assures us that he would have to flee from us ( James 4:7). Praise the Lord!

Friend, call on the name of the Lord. He will not get tired of you; however, there comes a time when the believer has to stop being a spiritual baby. There comes a point when you have to grow and take on your authority. Certain things happen in our lives because we let them. "Amen, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven".(Matthew 18:18) What a wonderful promise! You can literally order prosperity and healing in every area of your life, Glory! And when you start exercising your authority nothing and especially the devil will not be able to have control over you because you will know the peace of God and the power of the Omnipotent God.

Praise the Lord!
