Winning the War in Your Mind


Review this week's message.

Key Scriptures

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NIV

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. ...
Proverbs 23:7 NKJV

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. ...
Romans 12:2 NIV

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life ...
2 Peter 1:3 NIV

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10 NIV

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.

  • Rank your average day of thoughts on this one-to-10 scale. One represents negative, worried, and self- centered; 10 represents peaceful, positive, and God- centered. How’d you come up with your number?

Start thinking. Ask a question to get your group thinking.

  • Do you think it’s easier to notice negative thinking in yourself or in others? Why?
  • Read Romans 12:1-2 and 2 Corinthians 10:3-5. What are we asked to do? What are we promised in return?

Start sharing. Choose a question to create openness.

  • How do you personally battle negative thinking? What have you found that works?
  • What’s one negative thought about yourself that you sometimes believe?
  • What can you change, or start, to allow God to renew your mind?

Start praying. Be bold and pray with power.

Heavenly Father, You are so good and trustworthy. Thank You for giving us the power of Your Word and the Holy Spirit living in us to combat the negative thoughts we face. Please give us the strength to create new paths in our brains that lead straight to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
