Battle of the Mind

“…For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (physical, body), but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ…” © 2 Cor 10:3-5, KJV italics, brackets and emphasis mine

Many Christians believe that believers only need be spiritual, ignoring the role of the soul (mind) and the body (5 senses). Our mind plays a key role in our daily walk of faith or lack thereof. When the devil allures one he comes to mind; likewise God through His Spirit. Note: 2 Corinthians talks of strongholds, thoughts, knowledge and imaginations i.e. battle of who controls the mind.

Man is a spirit, has a soul (mind: will, intellect, emotions) and lives in the body. Our mind is a crucial platform that interacts (coordinate, relate, relay) between spirit and body, it takes of the spirit into body and vice versa; i.e. It is fed through our natural senses (the body) and from the spirit. Be alert of what you allow into your mind as it influences what you believe (in spirit) and hence practice (in the body).
