Winning the War in Your Mind

Published 2021-02-14
Our thoughts are powerful. They change our perspective, impact our decisions, and influence our habits. But what do we do when we become trapped by our thoughts, unable to escape negative and unhealthy thinking? In this series, you’ll learn what it means to take your thoughts captive and renew your mind.

Pastor @craiggroeschel's new book, Winning the War in Your Mind, is now available!…

We’ve all tried to think our way out of bad habits and unhealthy thought patterns, only to find ourselves stuck with an out-of-control mind and off-track daily life. But God has something better for your life than your old ways of thinking. It’s time to decide to change your thinking so God can change your life.

    I’m plagued by intrusive thoughts from the enemy, body pains, weird stuff, nightmares, and other things, but I won’t lose faith! ✊🏻
    Hallelujah forever

    I’m watching this and crying. Anxiety, depression and ocd having been eating me alive these past 2 weeks. I feel like I’m drowning and I’m stuck. I’m tired of all this false intrusive thoughts. It’s not who I am but I sit here freaking out. I don’t want to be around anyone just wanna be left alone. I question everything and I tend to feel more sad by the end. Thank you for this 🥺 I needed this today more than ever. Lord Jesus Christ please renew my mind. I want to feel peace and happiness again and be able to share my love with my loved ones and not feel like it’s better to isolate. Thank you 🙏🏻

    I’ve been held back by a lie for 7 months of my 14 year old life. No more will I be in such deceit, I will overcome and break the chains of the devils lies. May as many people who need to hear this hear it. Amen 🙏🏻

    Praying that everyone watching this video is able to renew their mind. To shut the door holding you back and to open the door that leads to freedom. You are not held back by anything anymore through Jesus.

  • Chris Nichols
    I'm getting my mind right. I've battled anxiety and depression for over twenty-one years. It wasn't until I laid all of my hurt down at Jesus' feet that I was set free. I am now pursing my calling of becoming a Licensed Counselor in Oklahoma.
