The Battle Of The Mind

There are two kinds of battles,
The inside and the out,
God's promised us His angels
Who surround us round about.

The inner battle we must win,
The battle of the mind,
For life's made of choices,
Casting fears and doubts behind.

God's given us authority,
Equipped us for the fight,
It's what we choose to think about
That brings both dark and light.

For we must capture every thought,
Determine what is true,
Does it line up with Scripture?
God's truth we must pursue.

We fight so many battles
When we worry, fret, and stew,
It's what we choose to dwell on
That can the mind renew.

It really is so simple
But the hardest thing to do,
Our choice--to capture every thought--
Hold on to what is true.


"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." II Corinthians 10:3-5 (NIV)
