Thoughts are what govern our attitudes, emotions, behaviour, lifestyles and mind-sets, but have you ever considered what influences our thoughts and why?
The quality and direction of our life depends greatly on the quality of our thoughts, and the quality of our thoughts depend greatly on the quality of information we use to create them.
To prevent the Christian reaching a full maturity in Christ through a renewed mind and a transformed life, Satan seeks to imprison a Christian’s ability to think the way God intended.
Satan understands the power of truth as he does the power of lies, deceit, misinformation, insufficient and inaccurate information. His purpose is to take control of a person’s behaviour by subtly taking control of a person’s ability to think, even without the person knowing he’s doing it.
God has a lot to say and a lot to reveal about the spiritual warfare that lies behind imprisoning a person’s thinking. The ability to think independently without bias, influence and prejudice is the most powerful single gift that God has given to man to know and understand God’s purposes for the Christian’s life, Romans 12:2.
2 Cor 10:5, tells us the battle that Christians fight will mean, ‘Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ …’
The problem for Christians, and non-believers too, is that they are unaware of the strategical value of binding up a person’s ability to think. For non-believers the god of this world has blinded their minds unless they see the glorious light of the Gospel, ( 2 Cor 4:4), and for the Christian, Satan will do all he can to confuse, mislead, distort and justify their thinking to bring about his agenda.
Rethink challenges the thinking that goes behind a Christians’ behaviour, to help bring about a renewed thinking and a transformed life by reclaiming the power and ability to think in Spirit and truth rather than perception, lies, feelings, prejudice and fear: helping them regain control of the pattern of their lives with responsibility, accountability, healing and growth.
Rethink seeks to assist Christians to recognise, understand, confront and manage influences on their thinking that are designed by Satan to bring it into submission to ungodly and unfruitful behaviour preventing maturity in Christ and non-conformity to the world.
Rethink has been running courses, seminars, workshops and mentoring to individuals, churches, church leaders, Christian organisations and suchlike, for over 15 years with wonderful fruit.
Rethink has gathered much experience as God has taught us about the renewed mind, the transformed life and considerably more about ourselves.
