The ene­my does not have much pow­er over us except the one that we let him have. The ene­my can only get to us in the minds when we give him a chance. The mind is the bat­tle ground.
2 Corinthi­ans 10:5 “we pull down every proud obsta­cle that is raised against the knowl­edge of God, we take every thought cap­tive and make it obey Christ.”
One way the ene­my attack is by send­ing our minds images of things that exalts itself against the knowl­edge of God. The end point of any­thing that comes from the dev­il is to lead us astray, lead us against the knowl­edge of God, mak­ing us dis­obey or rebel against God or both.
All these images from the dev­il leads to neg­a­tive imag­i­na­tion. They are obsta­cle that must be removed. The entry point is the thoughts. If the ene­my suc­ceeds in get­ting us to think of it, he then suc­ceeds in get­ting us to think of it, he then starts paint­ing the pic­ture, next is our thought there­by dis­tort­ing our real­i­ty.
There­fore we must take every neg­a­tive thought into cap­tiv­i­ty for they are the enemy’s seeds. We must con­scious­ly choose the way of God to pull down the neg­a­tive thoughts before they breed neg­a­tive imag­i­na­tions. For our minds are renewed and trans­formed by God’s words. As we con­scious­ly and con­stant­ly cling to the word of God and let the spir­it of God lead us, we are turned off from the neg­a­tive imag­i­na­tions, as God words is plant­ed in our hearts. As the word of God grows in our minds, pos­i­tive imag­i­na­tions which hon­our God and are good for human­i­ty springs from with­in, replac­ing the neg­a­tive imag­i­na­tions
The writ­ten word of God is very pow­er­ful but we must mix it with our faith in God for it to be high­ly effec­tive.
Eph­esians 6:16 “all times car­ry faith as a shield, for with you will be able to put out all the burn­ing arrows shot by the Evil one.”

Expe­ri­ence Life Abun­dance In Christ.
