Winning the War In Your Mind Pt. 2 “Taking Back Your Mind”

June 27, 2021

Our lives are always moving in the direction of our strongest thoughts.

Philippians 4:8 New Living Translation

8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

Romans 12:2 NIV

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…

Psalm 143:5 NIV

… I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done. 

Fixing our minds on better things will help fix many of the unhelpful emotions and behaviors we experience.

Commit this verse to memory. Meditate on it. Read it at least once a day this week. Write it down and place it somewhere you can see it. 

Philippians 4:8 New Living Translation

8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

LIFE GROUP DISCUSSION

Start talking. 

  • What’s your favorite karate movie? (Or, if karate isn’t your thing, what’s your favorite sports movie?)

Start thinking. 

  • Do you ever find yourself acting irrationally based on a lie you believe about yourself? If so, how?
  • The lies we believe about ourselves are often rooted in childhood experiences. Have you experienced this in your own life? How has it affected you?
  • Have you meditated on God’s truth before? What was that experience like?

Start sharing. 

  • What is the dominant stronghold in your life?
  • What are some truths from God’s Word that you can write, meditate on, and confess to combat it?

Start praying. Be bold and pray with power.

  • Father, show me any weaknesses I have in my life as a result of believing a lie. Help me identify what truth from Your Word I can use to fight that lie. Give me wisdom as I create daily declarations, and guide me as I begin the process of renewing my mind. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Start doing. 

  • Spend time in your Life Group creating some daily declarations based on Scripture. Challenge one another to share them with the group and commit to saying or meditating on them daily.
