Emotional War zone
The emotion is the strongest arena of human warfare. A weak emotional life will breed misery and failure.To build a strong spirit and a weak emotion will result in a downfall.The Devil knows this so well and therefore targets the emotional centre of our lives.
The shocking story is that statistics shows that the downfall of many ministers of God is in the area of their emotion.When you start loving what you are called to stand against you are traped.The Bible speaks ill about fornication and adultery which we are called to stand against.But this atrocity are most times committed by preachers who are called to stand against it.
When you emotion becomes entangled you start desiring what you were born to hate.You can lose in one day what it has cost you a lifetime to build if you leave your emotion insecure.Since the emotion is such a sensitive aspect a leader has got to guard it diligently.Proverbs 4:23 admonishes us,”guard our hearts with all deligence…”
An unguarded heart will bring you pain.
Most leader set themselves up for a fall, but you hear them pray “lead us not into temptation”.Avoid things, places and people that will distract your focus from God.You may have a passionate pursuit for God today, but when you are caught in the web of emotional war zone your passion for God will decline.The Spirit many times surrender to the emotion when it should be otherwise.
Therefore, we must begin the adventure of building a strong emotional life if we are going to make it to the end and have a good testimony for the kingdom of God.
Tapping into the Unlimited Knowledge of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit was given to every Christian to transform our lives into a supernatural marvel to the world around us. He is the distinct feature of the believer.He is our greatest resources in this life. A friend of mine was able to get the information of the death of somebody I know without any prior information from anywhere…I thought to myself who told him? Then I realise that when we recieve the Holy Spirit ignorance becomes the thing of the past.
I can know my future, I can tell how my life will turn out because developing an intimate relationship with the greatest Person in the universe gives me an edge in life.
Apostle Peter was able to know when the men Cornelieus sent were around, and the Holy Spirit allowed him to follow them.The early Church decision was overseered by the Holy Spirit.
Many in the church have learnt to tap into His power, but few have tapped into His knowledge.I can have the power of the Spirit and still make miserable choices, but when I have access into His knowledge I WILL take right paths in life.
Its time to begin to know things,places, and events by the Holy Spirit.He knows all things,and He wants to share them with us.He grieves to see us fail, decieved and frustrated when He is by our side.
I encourage you to develop the habit of listening and not forcing your way through life.
