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 devil has an objective against God’s people by deceiving them to believe in his lies through the power of suggestions.

The reason why we don’t have to fall in satan’s thinking pattern is that we don’t have the mind of satan but we have the mind of Christ. A great example on how to put the mind of Christ to work with the help of the Holy Spirit,  please read Matthew 4:1-11.

Jesus Christ our Lord yielded to the Holy Spirit when He was tempted by the devil. He did not try to reason with Him or give room for His suggestions. That’s the mistake most people do. We fail to understand that satan is the god of this world systems so we can’t defeat him in the area of our human reasoning. You can only defeat him by standing on the word of God. That is how we weaken his grip over our mind.

Then Jesus said to him, Begone, Satan! For it has been written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him alone shall you serve. [Deut. 6:13.] Then the devil departed from Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.” Matthew 4:10-11 AMP

It’s time for us not to go into any discussion with the devil.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. I take my stand against satan and his cohorts and rebuke every of his work against my heart and mind in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
