Before the fall in Genesis, the enemy did not have access to our hearts. He only had access to our minds. We had to allow him to control our mind before he had access to our heart. And as soon as he had access to our heart, we fell.
Therefore, it is imperative that we renew our minds daily and that we stay in the Word. And that we continue to submit to God’s Holy Word. And that we continue to surrender to every desire that God has for our lives.
And that we stay away from anything that the in the enemy brings into our minds. It is imperative that we reject the thought as soon as it comes. We cannot dwell on it or it will become part of our heart. When we have a thought that comes to us, and we know that it is dishonoring to God and it goes against God’s Word, we have to call upon the name of Jesus and ask him to deliver us, our hearts and minds from the enemy.
