Whenever you go into a battle go in with the intent to win. You must never entertain the thought of losing or defeat. Go into the battle prepared to win. God is a prepared God, He is always ready.
ready to deal with something or made ready, beforehand.
To be unprepared is to be un-armed. To be un-armed is to proclaim your enemy the victor even before the battle begins. We must be fully persuaded that we can and will defeat the opposing forces. The bible commands us to gird up the loins of our minds, meaning you must be mentally prepared as well as spiritually. Your mind plays a vital part in your victory because it can sway your spirit to win or lose. If you have stinking thinking then you will negate the faith of your spirit and cause shipwreck of your course. God tells us in Romans 12:1-2, to renew our minds so that we can begin to think like Him. Gods thoughts are always filled with victory and triumph. You will never catch God thinking of defeat and failure. So as we begin to renew our minds and think like God we will think and speak victory. You are a winner, so always be prepared to win.
2Timothy 2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.
