“And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:” Luke 22:31 (KJV)
Thought attacks – people talk about heart attacks and the great concern they have for them or someone they love actually experiencing one. Then after spending time with the Holy Spirit, He revealed to me that Thought Attacks are one of the greatest attacks that Christians are suffering from in present times. Yet, once they become equipped with the knowledge of how to deal with these attacks head on, they will be able to stop a whole lot of negative events from occurring in their lives.
Right now say this with me, “Holy Spirit, teach me how to overcome thought attacks.” This is the number one tactical scheme that the enemy uses; he works by using thoughts. Jesus made a statement in Luke 22:31, “And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:”. What did He mean by “sifting as wheat” – that the enemy wants to take “it” out of you. The “it” in this context refers to your thoughts and your thought process – the enemy desires to sift you out of God’s will through your thoughts. The enemy always starts through your thoughts to try to lead you astray, try to get you to worry, or even have you bound in fear. Yes, it is true that the enemy desires to continuously work on ways to sift you out; while persistently perfecting his main mechanism of sifting through your thoughts until you are completely confused and totally messed up. When he comes in that direction, that is not the time to fold in on his sifting tactics. Instead of allowing him to mess your thoughts up, immediately take ownership over your thoughts and elevate them up to the governing of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the only one who can turn thought attacks into Thought Victories!
