Did you know it’s not only your soul that has been saved, but your MIND has been saved as well. The hill where Jesus was crucified was called Golgotha which means “skull”. The victory was won over your mind by Jesus on the skull! How absolutely strategic.

The evil one fights to take back what Jesus has claimed and most often what he gets is our mind. How successful has he been in your life this week? Have your thoughts been victorious or have they been of defeat? Jesus paid a high price for your victory, why would you ever allow the defeated one to defeat you in your head?

Your greatest asset is your mind. Your mind paints a vivid picture and your body responds with every emotion and energy to create the picture. Every choice you make, good or bad, was first a thought in your mind. So of course your mind is under attack. A relentless, violent, brutal attack, and it’s happening every minute of the day.

Whatever gets your mind, gets you. Your thoughts are the guide, so the important question is, who is the author of your thoughts?

Scripture warns us of strongholds on our mind. What has a strong hold on your thoughts? Where have you been stuck in worry or fear? What same old thought runs through your mind like a wild banshee creating havoc? That is a stronghold and honey, it’s holding you back.

Holding you back from the freedom of being who you were created to be and living the life God created you to live. Holding you back from the joy of the Lord. Holding you back from your purpose and your destiny.

But remember, your mind is saved! Just like your soul has been redeemed, so has your mind. You are no longer a captive here. Any strongholds the enemy has established in your mind can and must be destroyed.

You have been equipped for this battle!

2 Corinthians 10:4 tells us “the weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world.” Our weapons have the divine power to demolish strongholds.

Ephesians 6:17 gives us a list of battle gear, and the first is the helmet of salvation. A helmet protects your MIND, your greatest asset.

Girl, you have supernatural protection wrapped around your head to safeguard your mind from every assault of the enemy. You are covered. Those thoughts of fear, overwhelm and anxiety bounce right off. Phew, phew, phew. Nope, they’re not getting in.

But, they do get in when we take off our helmet. What is the helmet again? It is the helmet of SALVATION. When we forget it’s not just our soul that has been saved, our thoughts are left vulnerable.

Here’s a simple step to remember when you know your mind is being assaulted: Tap your helmet. Yip, just give that sweet head of yours a little tap and say “you’ve been saved and you are protected.”

Exodus 14:14 says “The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.”

This is exactly what we’re talking about. The battle over your mind is real and it is vicious, but the Lord will fight for you. Stand there in your helmet of salvation and know you are protected. Any stronghold the enemy tries to use against you has been demolished! His attacks will not be successful.

Your mind has been saved and it is protected.

If you’ve taken your helmet off and you’ve been dancing with worries, fears and regrets, new strongholds have been established. Demolish them now. You have been given that power through Christ Jesus. Declare your mind is precious territory claimed by Jesus. Satan has no right to come marching in here! He has been banished.

Tap your helmet. Go ahead and give your head a little tap. You’ve been saved, you don’t have to think the thoughts you once thought. You are protected, the attacks will no longer be successful on your mind.

Now, keep your helmet on! The evil one is on the prowl like a hungry lion for someone to devour. He goes right for the head. But yours has been saved!
