does/can satan attack us using our thoughts?
I believe he can tell us lies through our thoughts but we have the choice behind believing that Lie. Something that I think about is Whose opinion of myself matters, My opinions of myself, Satans, the World's Opinions are all distorted and the only reliable Opinion is God's, we find His opinion in the Word and through the Witness of the Holy Spirit. His opinion is much higher than any others. God Bless,Matthew
Very good answer Heartsong. We need to gird up the loins of our mind and be strengthened with all might in the inner man.We need to eat daily of the Bread of life so we can weigh and discern all the thoughts that the enemy plants. He does watch us continually and knows those weak areas. It really is a war.
norton330, you might find some further answers on Greg Violi's website, aplaceforhisglory.com. He is very clued up on the battle between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness.I would add, the context of 'Resist the devil and he will flee from you' is 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, [b]The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?[/b] 6 [b]But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.[/b] 7 [b]Submit yourselves therefore to God[/b]. [u]Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.[/u] 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse [i]your[/i] hands, [i]ye[/i] sinners; and purify [i]your[/i] hearts, [i]ye[/i] double minded. 9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and [i]your[/i] joy to heaviness. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. James 4
Absolutely. I believe from 2 Cor. 10:3-5 that the bulk of our spiritual warfare occurs in our mind. The enemy would love to place in our minds vain imaginations and thoughts that would exalt themselves against the knowledge of God.
