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

Most of life’s battles are waged through the mind, if we overcome its in the mind through God we do this. Man cannot save himself from his issues as much as he tries to. He has to go outside of himself, to a higher source if he must succeed and live a balance life. God wants to heal the whole man but to do that he must change his fallen mindset. “The Mind is the seat of all spiritual and carnal conflict” The Battle for the Mind By Noel Jones with Dr. Georgina Land .The mind is the greatest gift God has ever given to mankind. Whatever controls your mind owns you. You say well I function; I’m doing what society says I ought to do. I’m providing for my family, I have some accomplishments; I have money, shelter, food and clothing. Yes all that’s wonderful but you’re still in bondage through your mind.

When we come to God he has to renew our mind. It’s a process that takes time that’s why we mature and grow into the things of God. Man has a carnal nature, because of sin. All carnality is in opposition to God.”For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spirituality minded is life and peace” Romans 8:6.Opposing forces of light and darkness battle for our minds every day. “Jesus was manifested that he might destroy the works of darkness” 1John 3:8, he’s our only hope. “When the Christian  believer  begins to battle between the desires of the flesh and the will of the Spirit it must be clear that satanic forces are trying to control your thinking through your flesh, which is connected to your five senses” The Battle for the Mind. When we are yielded to the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit fights to subdue our flesh. If you let him, you will eventually be victorious as you begin overcoming your issues.

‘The word ‘mind’ in Hebrew is nephesh, it connotes many things most notably life, creature, person and soul’ The Battle for the Mind. The things of the Spirit are accessed through our minds. We are made in God’s image and likeness” Genesis 1:27. God is a spirit, we are told God has a mind, he speaks. Spirits don’t have bodies, not in the physical sense. So by reasoning our mind is what connects us to God. Who has seen God or touched him? Not one of us. We know of God through faith. Faith happens in the mind. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans” 10:17.All human beings have God (divinity) inbuilt in their minds. It’s when the mind is liberated by the Spirit of the living God that the bondages and shackles fall away exposing the limiting and negative beliefs we have carried around for generations.

“We were created to operate in the way God does, through words of faith” by Miles Munroe.

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” Hebrews 11:3.

This scripture verse is referencing the work of creation. Creation story from a biblical standpoint, while fascinating leaves us with many questions. I’m aware that some cultures present other variations or viewpoints on the issue. However I believe most of us would love to know what really happened, a certain fascination or seeking is inherent in our collective consciousness .Even young kids, are curious about the whole affair. What I’m getting at is that, every theory presented to explain our existence is mans way of trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together. So what it comes down to is really which one do you believe? I choose to believe the Holy Bible, its collection of facts , events,geography and personalities is a fascinating portrait of humanity through the ages.

Ever wonder why we are the primary generation reading and studying the bible.The proliferation of the bible in modern times is truly staggering. I believe it was written for this generation.
