Day 6 Giving God Possession of Our Minds

II Corinthians 10:4-5 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”

I believe that all of our battles take place in our minds. It is where the enemy attacks us, where lies enter, where temptation tries to take root and where selfishness becomes justified and logical.

Today we fast and pray to give God full possession of our minds. We freely acknowledge that His ways and thoughts are higher than ours, so we release ourselves from the bondage of making God, His character and His will fit into our limited understanding. We bind the goodness of God and His unchanging love to our minds so that we can not be easily deceived or led astray. We agree with I Corinthians 2:16 and declare “we have the mind of Christ.” We open our minds to the Holy Spirit and close them to our flesh and the world around us. We pray today for the power to take every thought captive and declare that we are transformed by the renewing of our minds.
