💡 moment. Our emotions and our head space can change in an instant especially when things in life threaten the very things we care most about: your family, your children, your job, your home. Heck, even your human rights (insert the division in our country).......We can be filled with rage, envy, revenge, spitefulness, pride, anxiety, anger, worry...I could keep going but you get my drift. All those feelings are the opposite of joy, peace, love...etc.
The light bulb moment here for me is that THOSE emotions are exactly where the enemy (the devil) wants us to operate. He wants us to operate in the worry, in the pride, in the stress, the anxiety, the revenge. Because that’s where he operates.
When God created us, he created us in HIS image, not the Devil’s. He has favor over us but how can we allow God to guide us in our emotions if we’re constantly letting the Devil control them? How can God have favor on us when we’re constantly giving the enemy favor? Why is it so much easier to dislike someone who has done you wrong than love them? Why is it easier to let our hearts be filled with pride than to forgive someone? Because we’re letting the Devil operate our head and heart space. The Devil came to destroy (the very opposite of what God wants for us) and I think we’re letting him do a pretty darn good job of it. He’s destroying our world, our lives, our hearts....but what if we let God win? ——————————————————————
