Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of Me: for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light – Mattew 11:28).
Life can be hard and challenging, but with the Lord on your side, whatever comes against you, you can make it; you can live in peace and not be bombarded with thoughts of fear and anxiety.
The majority of the time, when we’re going through challenges, accept reality, but keep in mind that God is Greater than the reality you’re facing. The battle is in our mind whether or not you will come through what you’re going through.
Satan attacks the mind with negative thoughts that bring fear, anxiety, doubt, and unbelief. He can’t attack your spirit, and he can’t take your will unless you give it to him, so he attacks the mind. Christians have days when they are battling the influence of Satan in their mind.
To fight against the thoughts that come to mind is to have your thoughts filled with the Word of God. If you don’t have Scripture memorized, read them and write them down, so when a thought comes to mind to influence you not to have faith, God will answer your prayer you will have Scriptures to fight against the attacks on your mind.
As Christians, we need to memorize Scripture; as we study and read the Word of God, it’s embedded in our memory and our spirit. The Holy Spirit can’t bring the Word of God to your remembrance if you don’t have it in you.
Whether you’re a believer or non-believer, Satan wants you to be bombarded in your mind with negative thoughts. Faith comes from the experience we have with God. Jesus doesn’t only visit you at church, but He will visit you in your home, in your car, in your office, and wherever you welcome Him.
We can’t fight the adversary of our minds physically because he’s a spirit being; we must fight him with the Word of God. Jesus sees what you’re going through, and He’s inviting you to come to Him with your problems, with your feelings.
He’s concerned with your needs and wants. The Apostle Peter instructs the believer to cast their cares upon the Lord (Casting all your cares upon Him; for He careth for you – 1st Peter 5:7). We were not created to carry burdens and cares. We take them to the Lord and leave them there.
The Book of Psalms is a good book to read and memorize Scripture, speak the Word, think the Word, and believe the Word.
