BONDAGES OF THE MIND—CONFUSION, PART 3
The normal mind of a believer is restful. It’s not filled with reasoning, anxiety, worry, doubt, confusion, or fear. Those are the tools of the kingdom of darkness. Would God redeem us so we could continue using those tools?
The carnal mind is enmity toward God. That mind wants to do its own thing, through logic, reasoning and order. This creates abnormal mindsets. Reasoning leads to doubt, and doubt leads to confusion. God is not the author of confusion, so if you are confused, you did not get it from God; it came from the kingdom of darkness. Kick it out!
If we don’t know what is normal for our minds—peace—then we will accept an abnormal condition and believe it’s okay. It is important for us to realize that God has already created life templates to guide us as believers. And He placed His spirit within us to ensure and assure compliance. Until we tackle our thoughts, nothing will change. We must take all the raw thoughts that determine our actions. That’s why we must dismantle the old mindset, dismantling strongholds, and returning to God’s Word, for “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). The Holy Spirit enlightens our mind.
God is not the author of confusion. Reasoning causes the mind to revolve around a situation. There’s no solution, but it goes round and round the same mountain. The mind is in a state of confusion, which means God’s peace is not there. Satan frequently steals the will of God from us due to reasoning. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on June 13, 2021.
Romans 11:34 – Romans 12:2 NKJV
“For who has known the mind of the LORD?
Or who has become His counselor?”
“Or who has first given to Him
And it shall be repaid to him?”
For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be 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.
Healing and Deliverance
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
