[Continuation from 'Winning the Battle of the Mind'] We are engaged in a war; the enemy is Satan; the mind is the battle field; and the devil works diligently to set up strongholds in our minds. He does it through strategy and deceit, (well laid out plans and deliberate deceptions). He is in no hurry; he takes his time to work out his plans. We are to cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself above the knowledge of the truth. God's word is truth. John 8:31-32 (KJV). Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

God’s purpose for our lives is defined by what God had in mind when He created us or formed us in our mother’s womb. The stories of bible characters help us see the interplay between God, the person and other external forces playing parts in the outcomes of their lives. God is not going to impose His plans or purposes on us and Satan will do anything to get us to do his bidding. We also have choices that play a major deciding factor in what we do, say and eventually the outcomes of our lives. When tragedy strikes there is usually a cause, when good things happen we can also see a cause or a purpose for them.  Our outcomes are not in the hands of chance, or Satan. We can cooperate with God to change future outcomes even if the past was simply not within our control or influence. For...
