Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5)
Healing is not just the body but we should desire to be healed and restored in the mind. The evil one (devil) uses the mind to block the blessings of God from us. He uses circumstances, events, worry, and doubt. He knows if he can block or discolor your mind, then you will never receive the promises of God for your life. The devil uses the mind to block your communication from the heart of God. He cannot have your heart because God resides in it. He uses the mind to play tricks and allow the wrong perception of things. He wants to stop your mind from becoming all you can be. If he stops your mind, he stops your progression. If he stops your progression, then he stops you. Every thought that is contrary against the principles of God must be brought to Christ to allow him to take that thought prisoner and destroy it.
No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house (Mark 3:27). The evil one is not supposed to come in and bind a person mind. Our response when our mind is attack is to confess Romans 12:2 – 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. By renewing the mind every day, we become transformed to the will of God. By renewing the mind, we become more like Christ on a daily basis. By renewing the mind, we move to the position in God that he wants us to be in.
