Not An Inch! Taking authority over the thoughts in your mind!

Not an inch!  That is what the Lord tells me and I believe!  Not an inch will I give the enemy not an inch!  My mind and most of our minds are so filled with clutter and lies of the enemy!  He gets us to entertain thoughts of fear, rejection, suicide, depression and other mind binding spirits that get us to focus on wrong thoughts and directions.

Most days believers are plagued with ungodly thoughts.  They try so hard to pull their thoughts in the right direction, but with no avail.  We have tried for so long to get ahold of our thoughts and it doesn’t work.  We live in constant bondage crying out inside in desperation for the freedom that Christ has to offer.

We seek every book, every deliverance ministry and we still can’t find the freedom.  We are held in captivity to the thoughts the enemy consistantly torments us with.

What is the secret?  Where is the freedom that people long for and so desire?  I know the freedom people cry out for because I am a deliverance minister.  I hear their cries and pleas weekly and I have known my own cries from living with a fearful tormenting mind binding spirit. 

What I can tell you is that there is freedom!  What is the secret?  Being desperate!  Coming to a place of such desperation that you are crying out to the Lord for the freedom He longs to give you.  But even more…your freedom lies in taking EVERY thought captive; not just some thoughts but EVERY thought captive.

It is like picturing a sledge hammer in your mind and every time that thought comes in hitting it with the hammer and dismissing it.  The Bible says the Kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force.  This is also where our part comes into play.  Once we are delivered, once we know we have a challenge in front of us, we need to say…NOT AN INCH…NOT AN INCH WILL I GIVE HIM NOT AN INCH…and we need to cast down the thought, cast down the vain imagination, cast down the offense, cast down the hurt.  We cannot allow it to fester not even an INCH.  If we will continually cast it down and out then we will be able to take victory over our strongman, victory over our torment, victory over the lying spirits, victory over what occupies our mind.  However, it is a conscious effort on our part to say no I am not going to let it in, I am not going to take it captive, I am not going to allow the enemy an inch back into my mind.

True freedom comes in Christ and after being bound many years in my thoughts I am here to tell you freedom is possible for those who believe and refuse to give the enemy an INCH!
