We often allow negativity to dominate our thoughts, shape who we are, and imprison us. To be free, we must acknowledge the battle in our mind, identify our enemies, and formulate a plan to fight them.

Paul the Apostle wrote, “For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.” (Romans‬ 7:22-23) The “inner being” is the part of us that is born again and now possesses the nature of Christ. It’s the part that makes us DESIRE to “delight in God’s law.” The outer man is the part that ALWAYS wants to live in the imprisonment of sin. The two parts of us are constantly at war within us. What are we doing to win this battle?

What we feed the most will be the strongest—right?

So if we feed our mind a steady diet of the good things of God, our inner man will be stronger; and we will overcome evil. However, if our mind is constantly fed with the diet of the evil trifecta of—the world, the devil and the flesh—then we are feeding the bear that will devour us. Everything we put into our mind should be evaluated from the standpoint of whether it strengthens our inner man or feeds our flesh.

If we want to win the daily struggle against the captivity of sin, we must constantly be growing in our relationship with Christ. He knows what it looks like to defeat evil—He already did it. His Word gives us the best instructions for what to think and how to live. He sacrificed His life, so we could live in freedom. Freedom is not doing  anything we want because—ultimately we all serve someone—rather, it is loving and serving the Master we were created to serve. 

When we allow our Creator to be the Master of our mind, we live in the freedom He died to give us.
