For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 AMP
The reason why we are overtaken by thoughts of satan that attacks our mind is wrong intentions in the things we do or selfish ambitions. When our intentions are wrong we will end up gratifying the works of the flesh.
SO, SINCE Christ suffered in the flesh for us, for you, arm yourselves with the same thought and purpose [patiently to suffer rather than fail to please God]. For whoever has suffered in the flesh [having the mind of Christ] is done with [intentional] sin [has stopped pleasing himself and the world, and pleases God], 1 Peter 4:1 AMP
Such a mind is carnal and is still our choice to let it rule us or choose to yield to the Holy Spirit.
We are not here to please ourselves. But we are here please God Almighty that is sent us through His Son Jesus Christ to go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature. With this thought in mind. The Holy Spirit will empowered us to live the life of Christ no matter what the enemy tries to do.
That’s why the Bible says “We should arm ourselves with the same thought and purpose like Jesus Christ “.
In other words set your mind for victory that no matter what happens I will live to please God Almighty and do His will.
Jesus said to them, My food (nourishment) is to do the will (pleasure) of Him Who sent Me and to accomplish and completely finish His work. John 4:34 AMP
It’s time for us to arm ourselves with the same mind. This is a daily dedication to God in Jesus Christ mighty name.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your word. Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then shall I be blameless, and I shall be innocent and clear of great transgression. In Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen
