The Power of a Focused Mind

“A double-minded person cannot win a battle.”

A double-minded person cannot win a battle.

Believe it or not, your mind plays an important role in any kind of battle. A double-minded person cannot win a battle.

When Moses gave his farewell address in the book of Deuteronomy, he said, “The officers shall say to the army: Has anyone built a new house and not dedicated it? Let him go home, or he may die in battle and someone else may dedicate it” (Deuteronomy 20:5). Why did he say that? Moses knew that if a soldier goes into a battle with thoughts of an unfinished project in his mind, he will be unable to face the enemy at the same time.

To overcome adversity, your mind needs to be focused, even if it seems there’s no hope. And every battle begins in the mind. Your mind actually determines the direction of your mental and physical strength.
