And although you at one time were estranged and alienated from Him and were of hostile attitude of mind in your wicked activities, Yet now has [Christ, the Messiah] reconciled [you to God] in the body of His flesh through death, in order to present you holy and faultless and irreproachable in His [the Father’s] presence.” Colossians 1:21-22 AMPC
Our mind is free from satanic influence as we learn to yield ourselves as instruments of righteousness unto God. We were once in time past before we got born again under the control of Satan but now we are no more under his control. We are new creatures in Christ governed by the mind of Christ.
Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17 AMPC
Therefore, we must learn to renew our mind with God’s Word.
Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].” Romans 12:2 AMPC
We should not entertain the lies from Satan through his suggestion. That’s why the word of the Lord admonished us to gird the loins of our mind with the word of truth. We must make up our mind to serve the
Lord 100% irrespective of the circumstances we face.
Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.” 1 Peter 1:13 NIV
No one can really walk with God and overcome the works of Satan without making up their mind to do so with the Holy Spirit help.
Jesus Christ accomplished God’s purpose for His life by setting His mind to do so. For us also to prevail against the wiles of Satan we must do the same.
Victory is ours the devil is defeated. Let us hold fast to our victory in Christ and resist the devil and he(Satan) will flee from us.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father; I thank You for Your Word. Help me by Your Spirit to serve You 100% as I have set my mind to do so in Jesus name. Amen
