Battlefield of the Mind - Discerning Thoughts
The Lord is leading me into a focus on the battlefield of the mind-- the final frontier...
In 2Corinthians 10:3 we read, "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh."
If more people could pin the tail on the real donkey and understand why Jesus exclaimed "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do"... mankind is under the prince and power of the air's influence. As seekers of God, it is important to seek the difference in that man can activate thoughts by God or the enemy into the flesh. One brings forth the Kingdom of God, and one aligns with the accuser of the brethren.

"I looked for God but He never showed up"? Wow, that's the best and most noticeable situation to be in... IF you are sincerely looking for answers. The devil doesn't want you to make a decision for Jesus... perhaps all the other times you looked, the devil cleverly talked you out of how God was answering your prayers or speaking to you. Now is the time to Pay Attention to your thought life.

I hadn't realized how scatterbrained I had been... how much overtime my mind was doing, processing so many things at once.
Some time after I renounced all the sins that granted all that extra chatter in my head via the sins of my forefathers... I was viewing an online exhibition of Tibetan artwork. I was viewing the most horrid multi-armed, fang-faced, knife-weilding, blood-thirsty statue and I heard.... "Oh, it's beautiful" in my head. HELLO... not my thought... no way.... no how!...
