War has become a common incident in our society and that can be seen on our television screens. It has become so common that the death of fellow humans no longer mean anything to most people.
Every day, we hear one country, one kingdom, one community, or one group fighting the other. When one stops, another begins almost immediately and suddenly.
Death rates from wars have been on the increase. Nevertheless, if you think we have more victims from these wars, then you need to find out about the next war we will bring to your attention; it is called the war for survival.
The war for survival is another brutal war going on in our society. If we can get the figures right, we will realize that the victims of this war for survival are even far more than the victims of the war stated above.
The two wars stated above are not our focus today. There is yet another war going on, but many are not even aware of it. It is called the Thought War.
There are more victims of this thought war than any other war we have stated above. Apparently, everyone seems to be a victim of the thought war in one area of life.
Religion has made many of us into thinking that we are in another war with the devil and his cohorts of darkness. However, the war with the devil and his cohorts of darkness is part of the thought war. The thought war is a fight against the negative thoughts projected by the devil and his cohorts of darkness.
When we study the Holy Bible, we will realize that we were not told to fight with devils. We were only told to cast out devils, or bind them and cast them out with our words. That does not sound like a “war, battle or fight” but many have turned it into one.
Let us look at a beautiful view from the Holy Bible that addresses this subject in a remarkable way.
3 For though we walk in the world, we do not fight according to this world’s rules of warfare. 4 The weapons of the war we’re fighting are not of this world but are powered by God and effective at tearing down the strongholds erected against His truth. 5 We are demolishing arguments and ideas, every high-and-mighty philosophy that pits itself against the knowledge of the one true God. We are taking prisoners of every thought, every emotion, and subduing them into obedience to the Anointed One.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 The Voice Bible Translation
The verses of Scripture above, clearly tells us the real fight we are supposed to be fighting. It clearly points out the things we are supposed to be fighting, and they are called strongholds, arguments, ideas, philosophies, thoughts, and emotions.
In order words, the enemies we are supposed to be fighting are strongholds, arguments, ideas, philosophies, thoughts and emotions. If we carefully look at all these enemies stated above, we realize that our common enemies are thoughts.
The things defeating us are thoughts. Our fight is a fight of thoughts. Our war is a war of thoughts. Our battle is a battle of thoughts. This war, battle, or fight of thoughts has always determined our lot. Thus, a wise man once said, we are either captives or captains of our very own thoughts.
Who is that man or woman that truly and completely believes that he or she is rich and wealthy for life, that is poor? Who is that man or woman that truly and completely believes that he or she is perfectly healthy for life, that is sick or diseased? Who is that man or woman that truly and completely believes that he or she is enjoying physical and spiritual safety and protection for life, that is not enjoying safety and protection?
If no one truly and completely believes, and has been deprived by Nature what he or she believes, then, whenever we think about fixing our problems, we must go back to the foundation of our thoughts.
A wise man once said, when he fixes his thoughts, his problems fix themselves. Fixing your thoughts is the thought war. Looking away from every distracting and opposing reality to believe that whatever you desire is yours is the thought war.
Recognize this thought war! It is time to conquer the negative thoughts limiting you. It is time to make yourself believe in that dream or desire that looks impossible. You have power over your thoughts. It is time to exercise that power by making yourself believe!
The devil is not our biggest problem. Our unbelieving thoughts are our biggest problem. It is time to deal with those unbelieving thoughts that we have accepted. It is time to conquer our enemies called fear, doubt, and unbelief. They are the things keeping us bound.
Let us look at what some spiritual leaders, sages, philosophers and writers have to say about the thought war.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
– King Solomon of Old
All things are possible to him that believes.
According to your faith, it will be done to you.
– Jesus of Nazareth
The mind is everything. What you think you become.
You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.”
– James Allen
What we think determines what happens to us.
– Wayne Dyer
You are either the captive or the captain of your thoughts.
(Your) Reality is a projection of your thoughts or the things you habitually think about.
– Stephen Richards
You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.
– Marianne Williamson
Whatever you hold in your mind on a consistent basis is exactly what you will experience in your life.
– Tony Robbins
Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.
– Earl Nightingale
In your hands will be placed the exact results of your thoughts; you will receive that which you earn, no more, no less. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fail, remain, or rise with your thoughts.
– James Allen
You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought you could do. There are no limitations in what you can do except the limitations of your own mind.
– Darwin P. Kingsley
Life is a journey of endless thought wars. Conquering the thoughts that do not agree with our dreams or desires is the thought war. We have more casualties of the thought war than any other war that has taken place or will ever take place on the surface of the earth.
Some of the victims of the thought war went to their early graves. Some are lying down in the mortuary. Some are lying down on their sick bed in the hospital. Some are badly injured, bleeding profusely. Some are fighting very hard to stay alive.
If you conquer your thought wars in the area of health, then you will enjoy health. If you conquer your thought wars in the area of wealth and riches, then you will enjoy wealth and riches. If you conquer your thought wars in the area of safety and protection, then you will enjoy safety and protection. If you conquer your thought wars in the area of marriage and relationship, then you will enjoy your marriage and other relationships.
The important thing we need to realize is that our victories rub off on the people within our world of influence. We must understand that other human beings can become victims or victors of our thought wars. We are not the only people that benefit from our victories. Our society also benefits from the victories of our thought wars. Thus, we must engage in this thought war with a strong desire to win for our world.
