The battlefield of the mind will be resolved when one realizes just what God's will is and how He created you.
For starters we were not created to think...oooh that's a tough one... for one who is thinking according to the flesh. But think about it... back in the garden Adam and Eve never had a second thought, they were created by God Himself!
Question: So where did the other thoughts come from?... Answer: From the one who was kicked out of heaven long before we were created. He's angry and already judged and can't go back so he now wants to upset God by messing with His creation. "That's us"!
But be of good cheer the enemy has been defeated Jesus pulled his teeth and has won us back!
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.2 Timothy 2:15
What condition is your mind in? Have you noticed one time you may be calm, peaceful and certain of yourself. Another time you're anxious, worried and insecure. This is the battlefield of the mind. There have been times in my own life when I've experienced these thoughts. That's why we must renew our mind's daily through God's words.
...and be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.Romans 12
Your first step is to declare out loud that you will not allow any outside force to do your thinking–no man and no spirit. There are spiritual laws that demons must obey. They cannot stay where a man wills them not to stay. Your power is in the Name of Jesus.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind!2 Timothy 1:7 Prepare for Battle! As you begin to reclaim your mind and thought life from the enemy, know that the devil won't easily give up the place that he's had.
The battlefield of the mind is truly complex but very doable when you consider the source. the liar who's been actively defeated now and well over 2000 years ago. Praise Jesus!

Battlefield Of The Mind: 1. What is God's Will
From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, to the saints [in Ephesus], the faithful in Christ Jesus.(Rom 1:7; 1Cor 1:2; 2Cor 1:1) Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ! (Gal 1:3; 1Pet 1:2)
Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. (2Cor 1:3; 1Pet 1:3) For he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and without fault in his sight in love. (John 15:16; 1Tim 1:9; Luke 1:75; Eph 5:27; Col 1:22; 2Tim 1:9; Titus 2:12)
Battlefield of the Mind: 2.Soul Salvation
He did this by predestining us to adoption as His sons through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure of his will – to the praise of the glory of his grace that He has freely bestowed on us in his dearly loved Son. (Matt 3:17; 7)
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace (Acts 20:28; Col 1:14; Heb 9:12; 1Pet 1:18) that He lavished on us in all wisdom and insight.
He did this when he revealed to us the secret of his will, according to his good pleasure that he set forth in Christ,(Rom 16:25; Eph 3:9; Col 1:26; 2Tim 1:9; Titus 1:2; 1Pet 1:20) toward the administration of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ – the things in heaven and the things on earth.(Gen 49:10; Dan 9:24; Gal 4:4)
In Christ we too have been claimed as God’s own purchased possession, since we were predestined according to the one purpose of Him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of His will (Rom 8:17) so that we, who were the first (Acts 11:9-30) to set our hope on Christ, would be to the praise of his glory of His Name.
Battlefield of the Mind: 3.Guard your Heart
And when you heard the Word of Truth (the gospel of your salvation ) – when you believed in Christ – you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit,( Rom 8:15; 2Cor 1:22; 2Cor 5:5; Eph 4:30) who is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory. (Exod 19:5; Deut 7:6; Deut 14:2; Deut 26:18; Rom 8:23; 1Pet 2:9)
Un-Flippin Believable!!! THANK YOU LORD! Why would one have any battles in the mind knowing this?!?
Be not conformed...renew your mind daily. (Romans 12:2)
Let Him calm the storm in you first so He can calm the storm around you!
