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.
