Winning The Battle Of The Mind – “Enjoy the Meal” 10.10.21

Enjoy the Meal 

Our life is consistently trending in the direction of our strongest thoughts.  

There is hope, we have a choice.  

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your  thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and  lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and  worthy of praise. Philippians 4:8 NLT 

We will fix our thoughts on what is true! 

How to Stop the Spiral  

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you  anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Psalm 23:5 NIV 

Accept the truth that God has prepared a meal for you.  ● The meal is unique for you.  

  • God’s plans are better than yours.  

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to  give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:10 NLT 

Choose to sit at the table.  

See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children,  and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world  don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know  him. 1 John 3:1 NLT 

  • Every lie we believe is a reflection of what we believe about God.  

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your  workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. Psalm 139:14 NLT 

  • Discover God’s will.  

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. Psalm  119:105 NLT 

  • Live out God’s will.  

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says.  Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. James 1:22 NLT 

Avoid the distractions.  

  • Choose wisely who can sit at your table.  

Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of  fools will suffer harm. Proverbs 13:20 ESV 

  • Who we sit with shapes our future.  

Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for “bad company  corrupts good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 NLT 


  • Refuse to compare your life to someone else’s. 

Jesus replied, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that  to you? As for you, follow me.” John 21:22 NLT 

Focus on Jesus.  

11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one  sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he 

judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his  head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one  knows but himself. 13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the  name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14 And the armies of  heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on  white horses. 15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to  strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He  will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings  and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:11-16 ESV 

“As God is exalted to the right place in our lives, a thousand  problems are solved all at once.” AW Tozer  

  • Why would I ever want to sit at another table?
