What are you thinking about?

What are you thinking about?

by | 1, Nov 2020 | From Our Pastors

One of the most valuable spaces to utilise well in your life is your mind! There is a contending for that “space.”

Satan will try to get us to believe things that aren’t true about God, the Bible and especially about who you are in Christ. He will plant lies which are seeds such as;  “You not going to make it”, “God is Angry with you”, “Those people don’t like you”, “You’re not good enough” “That’s not what the Word really means”, “God doesn’t really mean that”, “Look how long it’s taking”, “God is not going to come through for you”, “You’re too old”, “You’re too young”, “Look what you did”, “Who do you think you are?”. These are all lies and the only real power satan has over you is if you receive these lies and allow them to take root in your life. 

My question to you is, “Are you thinking about what you think about?” Are you actually taking time to observe the thoughts you are entertaining that is contrary to the Word of God – The Truth!

The Bible says you are to take your thoughts captive. 

II Corinthians 10:4-5 
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,”


What is interesting is it says satan is trying to exalt himself against “the Knowledge of God” not God. In other words satan is happy for you to “KNOW OF GOD”, but he has a problem if you get to “KNOW” God.

John 8:32
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”


The reason the enemy tries to keep us from revelation and truth is that it is in the truth of Christ and the Word that we are free. He knows when a born again spirit filled believer begins to receive and walk in the truth, they are unstoppable, unshakable and fully persuaded of God’s promises and their authority as well as identity in Christ.

The word stronghold really means a lie or a false belief. This is where deception is birthed. Remember behind every stronghold is a lie, behind every lie is fear, and behind every fear is an Idol. Idols are established wherever there exists a failure to trust in God’s provision or promises. This is why satan established high places or strongholds. Satan’s whole purpose is to set up alters for himself, starting in your minds. Lies and wrong thinking will affect our attitudes, emotions, behaviours, and faith. This negatively impacts our homes, cities, nations, churches, politics, economics and families. Regional strongholds start in the minds of people and outwork through the peoples actions and words.

Romans 12:2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, 
that you may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

It is crucial that we renew our minds according to the Word of God. We need to align ourselves and thinking with truth, the truth of the Word of God. We need to be led by the spirit of truth who leads, guides and teaches us all things. 

Mark 12:30
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.


We are to protect and guard our minds. This is one way we love the Lord. The word MIND is the word (Dianoia – dee-an-oy-ah) which means; “A Thinking Through”. This suggests meditation, reflection, and your perception. We must reject the enemy’s lies, false statements, unbelief and toxic thoughts.

Joshua 1:8-9 
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”


The Word of God is clear, that if we would seek truth and keep our eyes focused on Him. If we reject any thoughts that come against the truth of God’s Word and replace it with God’s Word, His truth and keep this in our sights, we are guaranteed success. This is true in every area of your life, in your church, homes, businesses, places of work, families and so on. If the Word of God is kept at the centre, if you meditate on the Word and watch your thinking, success, abundance, prosperity and joy are guaranteed.
