Every person should enjoy life in abundance and prosperity, but unfortunately, too many of God's people are living way below their potential. So many have health issues, broken relationships, and/or no money in their bank account.
Most of the these types of problems are the result of what is going on in the minds of those who experience them.
In everyone's mind there are always at least three voices being heard, God's, the devil's, and your own flesh. Which voice you obey is based on your ability to discern (which is next week's topic).
For now, you must understand that your mind is a battlefield. It's where your decisions are made based on who's direction you are following. Who's direction you follow will ultimately determine where you end up.
In many self-help books, they say to always begin with the end in mind. That is, to have a mental picture of the way you would like for things to be. Now, I'm sure you have an idea of what you would like for your life to be, but how focused are you?
Are you focused at all? You see, it's right there where the battle is won or lost! Satan will do everything in his power to deter you from the dream God has shown you. He wants to set up strongholds in your life to hold you in bondage due to a certain way of thinking. This certain way of thinking is causng you to not believe.
Understand that the devil is more focused on your dream than you are! And he is determined to keep you from it. If he can keep you from achieving your objectives, he doesn't have to be as concerned about you interfering with his.
Your mind is a battlefield, and if you're going to win, you got to know how the game is played.
