Counselors, discerning parents and teachers tend to pick up things that most people miss. Body language, tone and words are like warning signals. Unless someone intervenes, a doubting mind can prevent you from greatness.
While the heart is a wellspring for life, Proverbs 4:23, the mind serves as a compass. Though the mouth speaks out of the overflow of the heart, Luke 6:45, the mind provides discipline to zip your lips or just blurt out whatever you think. If you allow emotions to get the best of you, a weak mind can alienate you from others.
The greatest assault anyone faces is often invisible. The devil is similar to a creature searching for a vulnerable mind to attack, 1 Peter 5:8 Lucifer’s ultimate goal is to steal, kill and destroy psyches, John 10:10. Preying on fears, anxieties and past mistakes, its easy to become unraveled. In view of this reality, guard your mind with the Bible, Romans 12:1-2, so that the next time you are under siege, you will be armed with weapons to achieve greatness, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5.
