We praise You for teaching us to silence Satan’s accusations in our head and to magnify You and Your Words. Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! (Psalm 34:3 ESV) This has truly been crucial in Your child’s walk with You. Their progress has been outstanding with praying Your Words in The Power of the Three Stranded Prayer. We praise you that we have learned to cling to YOU!
One thing we have missed and need a divine lesson in is this: teach us, this day, how to silence our own condemning voices and only listen to Yours! My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27 ESV) We can be so hard on ourselves. Your sheep beats themselves up every day with false accusations. Remind them: There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:1 NIV)
Just as the children of Israel circled around and around for 40 years in the wilderness, Your child is circling around and around their torturous thoughts! They are in bondage and need direction on how to fight back. You have circled this mountain long enough. Now turn north. (Deuteronomy 2:3 NASB)
Father, in the mighty Name of Jesus, equip Your child to be empowered to battle their self-defeating thoughts with the mind of Christ. “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:16 ESV) This means they have access to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit and Your Word. Clean their thoughts out with Your powerful promises. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2 ESV)
Self-defeating thoughts can be paralyzing to Your child’s spiritual progress. Silencing their inner critic is crucial. Negativity in the mind is poison and they need the cure: taking those “stinking thoughts” captive and only releasing them when they are fragranced with the Truth! We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5 ESV)
Your precious one needs Your help to chase these thoughts away with Your truth so they can continue to follow hard after You. Father, You are Jehovah Tsaba, the Lord their warrior. Please teach Your child how to fight these false beliefs through faith, trust, and rest in You. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me. (Psalm 63:8 ESV)
Destructive thoughts, entangled with the arrows shot directly into their hearts by Satan, trips them up in their pursuit of You. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Ephesians 6:16 NIV)
May their mind be at rest from this torture. You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. (Isaiah 26:3 ESV) Help their thoughts dwell on the truth—their righteousness is in Christ Jesus and they are not defined by their sin, nor the lies, shame, guilt, and condemnation. (1 Corinthians 1:30)
May You have the last word Father with this command: Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. (Philippians 4:8 ESV)
May the Mind of Christ rule their thoughts! May Your voice of TRUTH be all their ears hear! Oh, what a beautiful day that will be when torturous thoughts are silenced by Your truths!
In the mighty Name of Jesus we pray,
