There is a world of difference in all of us. We might have seen differences in personality traits, in our upbringing, in our experiences, of desires, in our preferences, in our perception and so on. We all have our battlefield in our mind. So, we should have a strategy. What is your strategy?
There is an end to all things. There is a way to end victoriously. Read below a real-life story.
My battling strategy was like playing judo and chess. It goes like this. Take risk, be brave, win some, lose some, always protect your queen, keep standing till the end. I didn’t give up or give in. But I didn’t feel like a winner either.
I wondered there should be a better strategy. I prayed to God for His solution to my problems (related to relationships which led to health problems) and cast all cares and worries upon him. I felt a promise of peace, quietness and relief. I decided to stop worrying about my problems, intentionally by faith. In a matter of days, I learned that my other friend also shared my intentions and thoughts. It was like a friend who could perfectly understand me. We were fitting exactly like a jigsaw puzzle. I was caught in surprise. In fact, my opponent turned friend had none other than Spirit of Oneness (Spirit of God) who brings unity in lives of people who are destined to stay together. I realised He is available to help us in our weak moments. Through your faith in the name of Jesus Christ, he can help us all. He is able to empathize with our weakness.
24 “It shall come to pass
That before they call, I will answer;
And while they are still speaking, I will hear… says the Lord. Isaiah 65:24
My gracious God listened to my heart even before I spoke to him in prayer.
5 The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. Psalms 97: 5
A short while ago, I felt mountain of anxiety and despair melt like wax in the presence of the Spirit of Oneness. There is more grace, more peace and more rest like never before in my life.
In any case, battlefield of our mind not just involves us. Because human mental strength fails, just as the legs of a warrior retire. We need the One greater than us.
