One of the greatest warfares people will fight in this world and in their life is warfare with information. Information that comes into you and goes out of you. Everything that happens is a result of the manipulation of information, and hence the manipulation of people’s minds and I’ve learned that the highest form of deliverance you can ever get is that of getting rid of wrong forms of information that control my mind.
If you take time to think about it you will realise that your life, the decisions you have made, the beliefs you have about certain things, and what you are experiencing today are a result of information that was given to you. And this information stayed with you and began to shape your thoughts, beliefs, behavior, actions, and outcomes in your life.
The world is in a battle over information that influences people’s lives and outcomes. Whilst some have good information that will build your life for success. Others are out to manipulate, control, and destroy you. Not all information that you expose yourself to or come across is good for you. In fact, a majority of the information from this world is not good for your mind.
The information you have today has either come to you through a book, newspaper, magazine, tv series, movie, music, the news, social media, a text message, a person, a family member, a government, and so forth. It is through some of the bad information you got from these mediums that satan manipulates your mind.
The only reason this is the greatest battle you will face in life is that the word of God says so. And when you consider this, you will see that it is indeed something you should be wary of at all times.
It says, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 KJV
Everything in this world has its positives and negatives and so doe information. Don’t just believe everything you hear, see, or are told. As someone once said, “all you see is not all there is”. Wherever you are in life, if you are not happy about something, ask questions and make sure you get the right answers.
Whatever you do don’t let satan control your mind. Because it is through your mind that God can guide your life.
The bad side
Satan has so manipulated many lives to the extent that many of the destruction we see in the world is a result of the information he fed the minds of the people doing it for him. Whether its theft, terrorist acts, abusiveness, corruption, poverty, diseases, and many others. It’s all a battle for information and the control of people’s minds.
Information is so important, to an extent that God himself says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you as My priests.” Hosea 4:6
The good side
Other forms of information have however resulted in some of the best advancements for the world today. Think of the inventions like the car, the airplane, trains, the internet, smart devices, manufacturing processes, advanced building methods, advances in fashion, food processes, and many others. All of these have come as a result of people taking the good information they have and using it to build the wonders we see today. And all of this can be attributed to God’s wisdom working in people’s minds.
And it is the reason why satan tries to manipulate the minds through wrong forms of information. But the word of God tells us that we can stop him from controlling our minds, or influencing them. How? By casting down those negative imaginations that you get and everything that works contrary to the word of God.
This is the advantage that humanity have today. The knowledge of God is freely available to all for the benefit of humanity. And all we need to do, each time the wrong information comes our way and starts to influence our thought patterns is to cast down the information, imaginations of satan that fight to influence our minds. When you use the word of God satan cannot influence or control your mind at anything.
Every thought must be filtered through the word of God, to enjoy your life and live victoriously, and produce great results.
The next time satan tries to manipulate your mind, with thoughts of fear, defeat, failure, regret, sickness, that cancer coming back, suicide, evil imaginations declare against those imaginations. Don’t let satan control your mind.
“Humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” James 4:7 KJV
