Dressing The Mind For Battle




Of all the messages that I have shared in these Faith Training videos, I feel like this is the most important one. In this episode, I discuss dressing the mind for battle. You may have read about putting on the full armor of God before and not fully understood that this is actually about the mind, your spiritual heart. The Lord gave me an analogy that this is like getting pumped up in the locker room before you go out on the football field to play. You have to get psyched up. I don’t play football, but I have been spiritually tackled before. Watch the video to find out how to get psyched up spiritually and how to dress your mind for battle!



Bible Study Scripture References:


“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.”
