Many times, instead of rejecting these negative thoughts, we open the door for the Devil to inject and implant negativity into our minds; the crucial part of our being which direct our move.
Despite our desire to work hard, live life and overcome problems, if we do not defend our minds daily from the Devil's attack, we will be on the losing side. We need to triumph in our minds first.
Everyday is a battle to triumph inwardly (in our minds), which will lead to our victory over the outward situations. Let's not give the devil any foothold in our thoughtlife. Lets be encouraged in the Lord and live a victorious life.
Romans 8:6 - For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace.
Ephesians 4:27 - ... and do not give the devil a foothold....
James 4:7 - Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
