Spam is literally a distraction that can prevent you from accomplishing something very important. It is the same when you entertain thoughts that come into your mind that I like to call Spam Thoughts. These are thoughts that are thrown into our minds by Satan to keep us from accomplishing God’s will for our lives. It could be a simple thought that triggers insecurity, guilt, shame, or anger to prevent you from God’s purpose for your life. And if Satan knows this simple little thought will paralyze you and prevent you from walking into God’s will for your life, you will find these thoughts impossible to avoid. Who knows better how to distract you from an important purpose God created you for than Satan? The second you decide to give your life to God and live your life for Him, Satan goes into overdrive throwing Spam Thoughts and Spam Situations at us constantly. Once he knows what triggers paralysis, he will create multitudes of situations that will trigger the same reaction. But when we allow the Holy Spirit to install the right settings to our thought patterns that detect incoming Spam Thoughts almost as an involuntary reaction, we begin to have amazing clarity. The paralysis goes away, and we are able to walk in freedom.
This is exactly what is described in Romans 12:2 by the renewing of your mind so you can test and approve what God’s will is. With the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, you have the privilege to gain wisdom to discern Spam Thoughts the instant they pop into your mind. The instant the Spam Thoughts pop into your mind, they don’t even pass Go---they are sent directly into the trash and are not even entertained for one instant. So unless you draw close to God and allow the Holy Spirit to guide your mind completely, the attacks from Satan will get in through any door you leave open. Our protection from every Spam Thought is the Armor of God, as described in Ephesians 6:13-17. It is available to everyone who wants the full protection against the enemy.
Allow the Holy Spirit to set up the full Armor of God in you. It is the best anti-virus against Spam Thoughts.
