Winning the battles in our minds on a daily basis is imperative for the believer. The long term effect of this would allow us to grow spiritually to be more like Jesus. This would also enable our character to change with a more Christ-like manner towards ourselves and others. For the believer to accomplish this, the believer must grasp the following principles below.
3 Principles to Win the Battles in our Mind
1. Desire Baptism in the Holy Spirit
To conquer the thought life, we need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. We cannot do it by our own physical strength, nor can it be achieved by magical powers.
2. Mind Renewal
For us, to win the battle in our minds, we must be completely transformed by the renewing of our minds. Not an external superficial change but a change in the inner man. It’s a change in our attitude, thinking, and ways towards a more Christ-like behaviour.
Our inner self is progressively being renewed daily – Read 2 Corinthians 4:16
3. The Word must Dwell in Us
When the word dwells in us, it helps us to grow by changing our old mindset. It starts to bring us to a place of true humility as we submit to the Word of God. The more we submit, the further God elevates us to a place of authority and power.
