Make no mistake, there's a battle going on for your headspace. Ephesians chapter 6 tells us we are not fighting against people but against powers and rulers in the unseen world. Thoughts and ideas that are in your head, have a source. We could be thinking thoughts from our heavenly Father by the Holy Spirit, who lives inside us. We would know it’s from Him if (and only if), those thoughts line up with the Word of God and there is a peace that comes with it. Or, we could be thinking our own fleshly ideas (that don’t line up), that come from negative thoughts sent by an enemy who wants to bring us down. Is it 'stinking thinking' you’re thinking? If so, maybe it’s not God or even you but the enemy.
You and I have a choice with our thinking. We can choose to receive any of them and take them on board, which then becomes a biological brain structure; physically imprinted and reinforced, every time your thoughts go there. Scary isn’t it? You and I can choose to think God’s Word to counteract 'stinking thinking', to start building healthy, godly brain structures that inspire, empower, encourage and refresh you to live peace filled, happy and free.
Habits take a bit of time to change if you've been thinking the wrong way for some time. This relates to any habits you may have tried to change. Perhaps you've been overeating, smoking or worse—things such as binge drinking, porn addiction or other practices or substances that are detrimental to your physical or emotional well-being. The spiritual aspect is something to consider when dealing with these habits, that are slowly but surely bringing you to an early demise.
I use a strategy to teach my clients how to battle with these negative and destructive thoughts. This is covered in my video online course: 'Unstuck & Empowered'. I am hosting an online,
When you put in new strategies to renounce the negative thoughts from the spiritual world and repent to God for believing these lies (and acting on them), over time, godly thinking rather than 'stinking thinking' will build new healthy, freeing habits.
Science tells us it takes three things to build a new habit—the first is a positive social environment which supports and encourages; the second is stretching the mind—thinking with new and unusual learning and the third is: repeat, repeat, repeat. Do these three things and new habits begin to form, which develops new biological and neurological structures in the brain. This is neuroscience in a nutshell.
The spiritual world is real and anything that is happening in your world, you can deal with it by harnessing the power of the most high God in faith and apply biblical principles to fight and win.
In Matthew 16:19 we are told that what we bind on this earth happens in heaven and what we release on this earth happens in heaven. You and I have supernatural power and authority because of Who we belong to, Who we follow and Who is on the throne in heaven. Jesus! No longer do you have to live in fear or stress or anxiety but you can live free!
