It’s been said that one of the greatest mistakes a believer can make is to forget that Satan exists. The second great mistake is to give him too much attention. The way to win the battle for our mind is to do everything we can to keep our focus on God – minute by minute, day by day. How you do this differs for everyone, but there are some basics. Some of the basics would include knowing His promises by reading His word, spending time with him in prayer and hanging out with other strong believers.
Questions for further thought:
1. When or where do you find it easiest to focus on God?
2. What areas of your life seem to shift your attention away from God?
Challenge: If your daily relationship with God is right where it should be, great! If there are some areas where you’d like to get stronger, pick one and come up with a plan to address that area. Need help making a plan? Phone a friend! Then put it into action…today!
