I want you to begin seeing any wrong thought that tries to enter into your mind as your enemy. They don’t mean you any good. You have to actively take a stand against them. satan is your enemy, but the thoughts that he tries to put in your mind are the real enemies. Why? Because satan has no power over you. He can only gain access to your life through your mind.
This next passage of scripture, I want you to read it with the mindset of how you are supposed to treat your thoughts, which are your enemies.
Psalm 18:37-42 – I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet. 39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me. 40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me. 41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the Lord, but he answered them not. 42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
Any thought that does not line up with those three things you have to treat it like these enemies were treated in the scripture passage above.
Pursue those thoughts. Overtake them, beat them, conquer them, subdue them, defeat them, destroy them and then you need to beat them as fine as dust. When you beat those thoughts you will be walking in Luke 10:19.
You have to chase negative thoughts out of your head! Take aggressive action against them and overtake them with the word. Attack them! You are in a battle! Either you will conquer your thoughts or they will conquer you.
Every time a negative thought comes in, speak the Word to it. Pursue it with the word of God until it has no place to hide. Until it has to run out of your life and find someone else to bother.
Thoughts are constantly crying out all the time. Beat them all into submission. Just keep beating them with the Word of God. Say: No! I’m not accepting this. Get off my mind! Leave my life! I bind you!
The only way satan can keep you from living the abundant life God has destined for you to live is through your thoughts. Adam and eve fell for it. The last Adam didn’t. You don’t need to have any mercy on thoughts that are not in agreement with God!
