"Be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind..."
The battlefield of the mind is a very important message so I encourage you to sit, watch and apply these principles to your life if you ever want to be successful as a Christian or if you are planning on being a Christian.
The enemy does not want us to know that we can control our thoughts, he does not want us to know that we have power to think positively on purpose. Well You do, and until you know this for yourself and actually start doing so, you will continue to lose the battle.
The enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy which means that he will have no mercy on us. God told us that we are filled with all spiritual blessings (Ephesians 1:3) so why not use them to our advantage? Remember that the bibles says that we should be renewed in the spirit of our mind. How? by keeping ourselves in God, in his word. By feeding ourselves with thoughts of him, talking about him etc. Don't be afraid of the enemy, he is actually afraid of you as a true believer; as such, he TRIES to take you out. The mind is a battlefield and once I found this out I decided to tell everyone. I know the enemy is upset about this but that is kinda the idea; to let him know that we as Christians already have the victory and that he is fighting a losing battle.
Be smart my brothers and sisters and recognize when the enemy is trying to trick you. Be smart and trust God to be God and fix things for you as he has stated. Remember the comforting words that he told Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20 "You need not to fight in this battle...The battle is not yours... Stand STILL and SEE the salvation of your Lord with you..."
Don't forget to praise him for your victories before they even happen.
Be careful what you feed yourself as you are what you eat. Meaning that if you keep yourself around negative persons or negative situations versus around things surrounding God then you will have a harder time living the life that he wants for you.
I hope this video helps you in some way shape or form with controlling your thoughts and recognizing the snares of the enemy.
