Are Demons Attacking your Mind?
No demon is necessary to think evil thoughts. Our flesh, when left unchecked, can take us down unrighteous paths.But there are also times when demons or Satan can plant an evil thought in your mind, that is very likely unprovoked by natural events and at sporadic times.
Do you choose to act on this evil, or will you resist the devil?
James 4:7 says: "Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."
Do Demons Dare to Delve into Your Mind?
So, what happens when a demons tries to drip devilish desires into your head?
There are two real options available:
1.You can allow that seed of evil to grow and thrive until you take action. This is pure evil at work.
2.You can resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Spiritual warfare is real, and there are spiritual weapons to fight against Satan and his minions. A relationship with God is required. A born-again believer cannot be possessed by a demon, but a non-believer is as vulnerable as a cat in a room full of fleas.
Christians Cannot be Possessed by Demons
One who is not a follower of Christ cannot stop or prevent from being possessed by any individuals means except by trusting in Jesus as Lord and Savior. If the Lord does not seal you and fill you with the Holy Spirit, you are left open to being possessed by one or more demons.

If a Christian does sinful things, it can allow demons easier access, much like opening a door.This includes:Drug use, Witchcraft, Satanism,Sexual sins, etc.
Fight the Bad Thoughts
God has not abandoned you.In fact, if you seek Him, He will be by your side every step of the way.He does not want to see anyone suffer at the hands of Satan.
So, if you find yourself in temptation, or battling an evil thought that has just popped up in your head, take the thought captive. This essentially means, do not give in to it. Do not dwell on it. Pray for God to remove that thought from your mind, and focus on Him. This is where scripture memory verses can help you turn your focus back on God
2 Corinthians 10:5 says: "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God,and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."
Nip Evil Thoughts in the Bud
No one can truly resist the devil or his demons without God. Yet most will acknowledge evil exists in the world, and still deny that there is a God.
So, if you are human, and have found yourself battling evil or tempting thoughts in your mind, you must not dwell on them. Remove them by praying, and recalling a memory verse from the Bible, to turn your focus back on God.
So can a demon control your mind?
Yes, if you are a non-believer And No, if you are born-again, but you can still be tempted by evil thoughts that need to be taken captive at the time of inception.
So trust in God. He will give you peace and comfort in times of trial, and protect you from the evil one. Thank you for reading this article, please share.
