Understanding Strongholds

The apostle Paul, with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, does a great job explaining strongholds when he writes to the Corinthian church. In 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 he writes, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty […] Continue reading…

Paul’s Guidelines for Our Thoughts

There is no area of your life that is untouched by your thoughts. Everyday an untold number of random thoughts come into your mind and what you do with those thoughts is so important to how you are going to live your life.  As I’ve mentioned in this series, we are in a war—a mind […] Continue reading…

We Have What it Takes to Renew Our Minds

Here’s some good news—God has given every person who believes in Him everything they need to have a renewed mind and win the mind wars! When we’re under the enemy’s attack and he’s trying to pump his negative, wrong-headed and sinful thoughts into our heads, we need to take those thoughts captive and remember and […] Continue reading…

The Safety Net of Encouragement

We are just starting a new teaching series called Winning the Mind Wars. In my last post I wrote about the danger of our minds moving from spiritual to carnal to corrupt.

Going from Bad to Worse

In Ephesians 4:17 Paul gives us a warning, “This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind.” He’s waving the red flag and drawing their (and our) attention to the clear fact that Christians, believers in […] Continue reading…

It blows me away. The Apostle Peter gives us an example of this and shows us just how quickly this mind-change […] Continue reading…

Understanding the Carnal Mind

Last week I posted two Blog articles about mind wars and the importance of Believers in Jesus Christ not simple being aware of the war, but having the tools to take every thought captive to God’s Word, will and ways. Winning and renewing our minds starts with identifying what is the wrong mind to have […] Continue reading…

The First Mind War

Mind wars—the struggle that goes on in our heads as we’re bombarded by thoughts, isn’t a new concept. The battle for our minds started in the Garden of Eden and all we have to do is read Genesis 3:1–13 to see how easily Satan, our enemy in this war, can invade our minds and get […] Continue reading…

Winning the Mind Wars

I’m happy to be back, refreshed and grateful for the sabbatical time I had. God is so good. I’m also excited about starting a new preaching series. My goal is to give you truth tools so you can win the wars that often rage in our minds. It’s my strong belief that people are going […] Continue reading…
