Encouragement for Today

But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them. But we belong to God, and those who know God listen to us. If they do not belong to God, they do not listen to us. That is how we know if someone has the Spirit of truth or the spirit of deception.

1 John 4:4 NLT

Our struggles are often linked to agreements we’ve made in our minds. From sayings like, “I’m not a morning person” or “I’m not a people person” or lies from the enemy like “You’re not good enough.” It is easy to see how a simple phrase evolves into an entire personality trait or bad habit. If there are seasons where it seems you’re encountering battle after battle, you may need to look at what mindsets you’re partnering with and determine if they’re in alignment with God’s word.

God enlightens our awareness of ungodly agreements.

Today, I want to encourage you to ask God to open your eyes to mindsets that are blocking you from spiritual growth. Pray that God will replace the lies of the enemy in your mind with His truth. You can conquer any ungodly agreement you’ve made in your mind. Remember that His Spirit lives within you and you have the authority to bring that agreement under submission. The Holy Spirit will guide you on how to let go of thoughts that hinder your walk with the Lord.
