There’s empty space in our minds. And we must be careful what we allow in our minds to take up that empty space. Moving out the negative and moving in the positive is the objective.
Satan wants to have permanent residence in our mind, to keep us from doing the right things. The more negative we think, the more comfortable satan is. Therefore, we must not give satan any place in our thoughts, but we must be careful of what we think, to keep him out. But know, that he will come back.
Thinking positive and reading the word of God, is a sure way of keeping satan out of your mind. When you think right thoughts, satan has to leave. Keep your thoughts on the word, when satan returns he will find no empty place, therefore, he will leave.
Ephesians 4:27 (KJV) – neither give place to the devil.
I Peter 5:8 (KJV) – be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
James 4:7 (KJV) – submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
