Preparing our minds for battle

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good. and acceptable. and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2                                                                                                                                             As Christians we need to realize that the battle is not ours, but the Holy Spirits. We have got to get out of the way, and stay out of the way. Let the Holy Spirit do it's work on our behalf. The devil works on us, using our minds. Trying to fill them with lies to tear us down, and defeat us. We must fight him, by renewing and refreshing our minds, with precious truths from the Word of God, daily. Remember, garbage in, garbage out. Life in, life out.

Getting out of the way is important. It took me along time to figure that one out. I pray things are going better for you.

Hi Denise! Yes, if the devil can get our minds, then he's got us. That's why it is so important to renew it EVERYDAY! Thanks for the reminder my friend and thanks for linking up! Have a blessed rest of your week!
