Well this is the first step: start reading the bible daily; know what it says especially about the areas in our minds that needs rewiring/renewing. In the old testament the people said that they wrote the word on their hearts so that they would not sin against God. (rephrased psalms 119:11)
Second step: plug into the word of God by meditating on the chapters and verses that you need.
Think deeply or focus for a time for spiritual purposes or to relax.
Think deeply or carefully about (something).
contemplate – think – muse – ponder – reflect – cogitate
Replace the negative thoughts that hold us back in the past with the words of truth. Those negative thoughts separates us from God and creates openings in our lives for Satan and His forces of darkness to work in our lives.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Satan comes to KILL STEAL AND DESTROYS US.. HE AND HIS DEMONS HATE US!! Jesus Christ came that we may have life and have it abundantly.
Why does Satan attacks our minds more than anything else? Well, the real battle takes place in our minds and if he controls our minds then he controls us…. The word of God says: as a man thinketh so is he. Lets go back to Eve, when the serpent went to her he played with her mind. He caused her to rethink what God said and she wrongly entertained him….Genesis 3: 1-4 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”
4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
TAKING IT FURTHER: How could an adult look at a baby/child and have sexual desires for them? How can parents sell their eight year old daughters to men five times their age into marriage. How can someone hack another human being limb from limb? How can people go on church pulpit and scam the people? How can we hate others and say we love God? How can we envy or be jealous of our brothers because we are not pleased with our own lives.
The bible says, submit to God then we can resist the devil (rephrased). We can not resist the devil on our own. Satan has been around for a long time before us; he studies us, he knows our weakness and he will milk it.
THIRD STEP: Speak the word of God over our lives. Say it!!! The bible says we have life and death in our tongues.. Speak it over, over and over again, speak it until you have total freedom over the wrong mindsets that you have. It is like this, I have been learning to play the keyboard for over ten years (HAHA) and I still need lessons. Why you may ask? Well, I have not been persistent, I have never practice until I mastered it hence, each time I resume lessons I am still at level 2, when I should be at mastery. Also, remember that it is not by our might or power but that it happens by the Spirit of the Lord our God.
CHECK THIS OUT: For instance, you struggle with rejection. Satan says you are a reject, right BUT God says IN John 15: I chose you, you did not choose ME. God says, you are predestined and called, by Him. Another one: Maybe most of your life people have said you are worthless and no good. God says in Jeremiah 29:11 for I know the plans I have for you says God, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future.
These are just a few ways our minds can be renewed. God did not create us to stay under the thumb of Satan. He says that we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. God warned us that we would go through hard times, read John 15 but He says that His grace is sufficient for us. He says in our weakness He is made strong.
STEP FOUR: worship, praise and pray to God. Listen as He speaks as well and be obedient to His leading.
These are just a few steps that will help us to rewire or renew our minds from wrong mindsets.
