Tearing Down Stealth Bondages That Are Shipwrecking Our Relationships. – Mind Game Part 1

True Story: Maryam and Tunde’s Relationship Is In The Middle of A Major Storm That Won’t Go Away Except They Take Some Major Steps. Would they?

Discovery Bible Study Scriptures:

John 8:31-32 – If you abide in my words, you are truly my disciples and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 For the weapons of our warfare are not physical, but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds. In as much as we refute arguments and theories and reasoning and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself against the true knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ.

Romans 12:2 – Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind so that you may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect in His sight for you.

Luke 4:18-19

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners.

Questions: What are the truth you are learning from the above scriptures? If this is true, what commitments can you make to obey in keeping with the truth in the scriptures above? Who would you share these truth with and your commitment for witnessing and accountability purposes?

INTRODUCTION TO MARYAM AND TUNDE’S WORLD – Could be similar to yours or mine so pay attention:

Maryam and her husband, Tunde, are not enjoying a happy marriage. There so much strife between them all the time. They are both angry, bitter and resentful. The have two children who are being affected by the problems in the house. The strife is showing up in their schoolwork and behavior. One of the children is having stomach problems caused by nerves.

Maryam’s problem is that she does not want to let Tunde be the head of their home. She is bossy, she wants to make all the decisions, handle the finances, and discipline the children. She wants to work so she will have her “own” money. She is independent, loud, demanding, and a nag.

About now you may be thinking, “I’ve got her answer. She needs to know Jesus. “She does know Him! Maryam received Jesus as her Savior five years ago – three years after she and Tunde married.

“Do you mean there hasn’t been a change in Maryam since receiving Jesus as Savior?”

Yes, there have been change. She believes she is going to heaven even though her bad behavior cause her to constant condemnation. She has hope now. Before she met Jesus, she was miserable and hopeless; now she is just miserable.

Maryam knows that her attitude is wrong. She wants to change. She has received counselling from two people. And she gets in almost every prayer line, asking for victory over anger, rebellion, unforgiveness, resentment and bitterness. Why hasn’t she seen much improvement?

The answer is found in Romans 12:2 – Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind so that you may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect in His sight for you.

WHAT ARE THE SOURCES OF MARYAM’S PROBLEMS? – MIND GAME?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maryam has stronghold in her mind. Serious mind game that got initiated at childhood. They have been there for years. She doesn’t even understand how they got there. She know she should not be rebellious, bossy and nagging, etc., But she doesn’t know how to change her nature. It seems she simply reacts in a certain situation in unseemly way because she can’t control her actions.

Maryam can’t control her action because she doesn’t control her thoughts. She doesn’t control her thoughts because there are strongholds in her mind that the devils sets up early in her life.

Satan begins to initiate his well laid plans and to sow his deliberate deception at a very young age. In Maryam’s case, her problem started long ago in childhood. As a child, Maryam had a very domineering father who often spanked her just because he was in a bad mood. If she makes one wrong move, he will vent his anger on her. For she suffered helplessly as her father mistreat her and her mother. He was disrespectful in all His ways to his wife and daughter. Maryam’s brother, however, could do no wrong. It seems as if he was favored just because he was a boy.

By the time she was sixteen, Maryam had been brainwashed for years by satan who had told her lies that went something like this: “Men really think they are something. They are all alike; you can’t trust them. They would hurt you and take advantage of you. If you are a man, you have got it made in life. You can do anything you want. You can order people around, be the boss, treat people anyway you please, and nobody (especially not wives or daughters) can do anything about it.”

As a result, Maryam’s mind was resolved: “When I get away from here, nobody is ever going to push me around again!”

Satan was already waging on the battlefield of her mind. Play those thoughts over and over again in your head a hundred thousand times or more over a period of ten years, and see if you are ready to get married and become a sweet, submissive, adoring wife.  Even if by some miracle you should want to be , you won’t know how. This is the kind of mess in which Maryam finds herself today. What can she do? What can any of us do in such a situation?

REMEDY TO MARYAM’S CASE AND LESSONS FOR US:

 

 

How do we win the truth over the lies of Satan? Lets DO Discovery Bible Study on John 8:31-32 – If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 For the weapons of our warfare are not physical, but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds. In as much as we refute arguments and theories and reasoning and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself against the true knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ.

Our weapon is the word used in various ways as Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians, our weapons are not canal weapons; they are spiritual. We need spiritual weapons because we are fighting master spirits, yes, even the devil himself.  Even Jesus used the weapons of the word in the wilderness to defeat the devil, Luke 4:1-13.  Each time the devil lied to Him, Jesus responded with, “It is written,” and quoted him the word

SUMMARY Part 1:

As Maryam learnt to use her weapons, she will begin to tear down the stronghold that had been built in her mind. She will know the TRUTH that will set her free. She will see that not all men are her earthly father.  Some are, but many are not. Her husband, is not. Tunde loves her very much..

Next Week, we would look at Tunde’s side. Tunde had very serious issues dating back to childhood as well.. Stay connected to part 2
