The Greek word nous means intellectual faculty of the natural man, the mind, the reasoning faculty (logic). 2 Corinthians 2:11, “Lest satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” The word devices referenced in this text is this Greek word nous. This word reminds me of a hangman’s noose…and that is exactly what happens in our lives when we permit ourselves to be manipulated by satan’s mind games.
Make this your confession: I am not ignorant of satan’s devices and I have the mind of Christ (the anointing). I choose to renew my mind in the Word of God (Rom. 12:2) and I am transformed!
