Don’t let negative thoughts take over your mind.

Like most of us our minds are constantly running with negative thoughts, and sometimes hard to shut off. Some result to the use of pills, staying busy or even alcohol to stop the thoughts. This may help temporarily, but what happens when you stop taking the pills? Or Stop drinking alcohol? Can you really stay busy 24/7? The thoughts will come back and probably in a worse manner. Who do you think brings on these negative thoughts? Well if you guessed Satan then you are correct! Ellen White talks about how God is the author of every Noble Thought and how He formed man’s mind, and she is correct! She also mentions that Satan can’t touch our mind or intellect unless we give it to him, the devil will use our mind if we do so. Before I started to get into reading the Bible, someone gave me a book to read talking about how there is a constant battle in our minds, and how Jesus can help us get rid of those thoughts, this got my attention to get closer to God. Every day there is a constant battle going on in our heads, whether it’s how someone thinks about you, loneliness, suspicions or even finance issues. The devil knows what we like and what we don’t like, he knows our insecurities, weaknesses and fears and will use them to his ability. He does not want us to trust God, he wants us to try and deal with them how the world deals with them, by using drugs, alcohol, prescription pills or even hypnosis. Satan sets up strong holds in our minds at a very young age and uses it against us later in life, one of Satan’s strengths is patience, he has nothing but time. So we must break away from these strong holds that he builds in our minds, and how do we do this? With God! In 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 it says “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (flesh) but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong-holds;” Casting down imagination, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” So what we need to do is change and tear down these “strong-holds” that the devil brainwashed us for years with, and how do we do this? With our Almighty weapon (God). And like Romans 12:2 Says “be not conformed of this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind….” Read the Bible and ask God for help, you will never be happy with a negative mind. We have to remember what Ephesians 6:12 says, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers and the rulers of darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places.”  This isn’t like a fight in the streets, this is a battle for your soul. This is pure evil you are dealing with, there is not a single human on this planet that can help you conquer this battle, only God can help us win this fight. It is up to You who’s control you want to be under? As Ellen White says either the evil angels or the angels of God are controlling our minds. Our minds are given to the control of God, or to the control of the powers of darkness. You Decide.

John 8:31-32 “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Mark 4:24 “And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.”
