Tell Satan to "Mind Yo Business!" + 3 Tips to Shift Your Mindset
The mind -- the playground of Satan! It is here where he is on a mission to kill, steal, and destroy. Let's take a second and think about the magnitude of the impact that Satan's tactics have. Your mind is the hub of your thoughts, dreams, desires, plans, etc. and from there they flow into your speech. You start to speak your dreams into the atmosphere, you voice your plans/desires out loud, and you share your thoughts and concerns with others. And from there, you begin to take action! So if Satan, can control and infuse your thoughts with lies, negativity, confusion, and doubt, then the only outcome for your thoughts, speech, and actions is defeat.
You....yes YOU...have been called to live an life full of abundance, to embrace the calling and purpose on your life, and to chase after the dreams and desires that God has set ablaze in your heart! So the question is, will you allow Satan to keep you bounded in all of his foolishness? It's time to tell Satan to "MIND YO BUSINESS" and get out your head!
TIP #1 RECOGNIZE THE EMOTION
When your mind starts to go into overload and you sense a change in your emotions (overwhelmed, frustrated, doubtful, or fearful -- because you know those aren't of God), check those emotions and allow yourself space to process them for what they are. You're human right? Give yourself room to recognize the shift and to digest the feeling. [This doesn't mean to linger in your emotions] When you start to develop a habit of emotional awareness, you can learn your triggers and breakdown the strongholds that may surface. It's all about resisting the enemy's attack on your mindset and taking back control!
TIP #2 RECALL THE TRUTH
Call Satan's bluff with God's truth! Now that you're aware of your emotions and mental triggers, bounce them off of scripture and declare to Satan that his lies will no longer defeat you. Activate your belief and stand in God's truth knowing that He will renew your mind, His word will go forth as He promised, and that the victory has ALREADY been won through Jesus Christ. Know your true identity and worth in God, lean on His promises, and walk daily knowing that your blessings and overflow are on the way. Satan doesn't want to deal with a woman with a strategy! [Like I said, MIND YO BUSINESS SATAN!]
