I could hear the sound of horse hooves in the spiritual realm, the clip- clop sound of a galloping horse. I could see its legs moving, galloping with a sound as thunder. On the white horse sits Jesus as rider; the Prince of Peace. This vision wasn't referring to His second coming, but to now, what He wants to do in the lives of men. He is coming with a roll of thunder to clear out the minds of man.

He has an immediate mission in mind to deliver those whose minds have been locked up. He desires His captives to be set free. His people's minds have been bound for too long. They are locked up, shut up and closed down. They aren't as effective and useful for the kingdom as He'd like them to be.

In this vision the Lord showed me the bondage around people's minds. It was similar to a half helmet, but this helmet is made of metal, specifically steel. It should be hard. Spiritual warfare should bounce off. I can hear the ting that should take place. However, His people's minds are capturing the warfare, capturing the bondage instead of dismissing it. It should be the helmet of salvation, of deliverance, but it is not. It reminded me of the article I wrote for Charisma a couple years ago, "How to Guard Your Thoughts Against the Enemy."

Jesus is riding the horse with the unlocking mechanism in His hands. He is holding the keys. He has already given us the keys, the Word of God. But, we aren't establishing the keys, the Word in our life therefore, we are still bound. He is jingling the keys to remind us everything we need is in His word.

He has given us the victory in the Word when we know the Word and apply the Word.

The Word says:

"But we have the mind of Christ" (1 Cor. 2:16b).

"He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4b).

"No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper" (Isa. 54:17a).

"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear" (1 John 4:18a).

"Though an army should encamp against me, my heart will not fear" (Ps. 27:3a).

We are searching for answers to something we already have. Jesus has given us the guidelines in His Word, but we are not applying it and speaking it out. We could renew our thoughts. We could feel good by simply speaking out Scripture. In my book, Speak Out (Creation House), I teach how to speak out scripture, how to write a scriptural declaration and how to renew your mind.

Mind-binding thoughts have captured us for too long. They seduce us into thinking negativity and bring us to a place of worry, fear, depression, paranoia and everything ungodly and contradictory to the word of God. They amuse us by having ourselves occupy our time focused on them, instead of God. The Lord told me years ago, "Kathy, if your mind were full of Scripture, there would not be room for anything else," such as fear.

Mind-binding spirits trap us into focusing about what we fear. Think about Sarai. She was afraid. She was consumed she couldn't conceive. So she gave her handmaid to Abram. Abram went into her and together Ishmael was birthed (Gen. 16). However, we need to ask ourselves, "Do I want an Ismael or an Isaac?" We need to seek deliverance and be released of mind-binding spirits so we can walk into our promise, our Isaac.

Jesus has given us the keys in His Word. Now we need to open His Word, read His Word and apply His Word. We must take every thought captive and make it submit to and obey God's word (2 Cor. 10:5). When we do this, there will be no room in our mind for anything contrary to His word.

Declare out today:

  • I am renewing my mind with God's Word.
  • God's Word is fruitful and productive in my life.
  • I am ignited and changed when I read God's Word.
  • No weapon formed against my mind will prosper, because it is full of God's Word.
  • The Lord will be glorified in my life. because the truth of His Word exists in me.
  • I combat every fiery dart of the enemy with God's Word.
  • I have a sound, disciplined mind, full of the love and power of God.
