Sickness, Illness and disease are horrible and can make us question God’s love and involvement in our lives. But seek Jesus because He is waiting to tell you how important you are to Him.
After having a strong relationship with the Lord, I fell into a sinful practice. Even after I stopped, the shame didn't go away. I felt like God couldn't use me anymore. Then one day, He showed me the truth. He discarded my filthy rags of shame and clothed me with peace and hope.
God asks us to complete tasks we don’t wish to complete nor will necessarily feel capable of completing. When that happens, we mustn’t run like Jonah did, but learn to say yes to the Lord even in our weakness.
The first commandment of the ten commandments is to have no other gods before God. Although most of us don’t bow down and worship statues, it can be surprisingly easy to let ourselves and other people become gods instead. When we do, our lives fall apart, but there’s hope.
Christ doesn't want us to be controlled by our emotions, but He does give us freedom to feel them when it's appropriate. It's our responsibility to know how and when to express them appropriately.
Sometimes even when we're walking with the Lord and have cast out demons, we can still struggle with strong negative emotions. But by using certain tools, we can still find freedom.
Once we decide to follow Christ, and live according to the pattern he set for us, Satan and his forces will do all they can to stop us. They will twist our emotions so that we're ineffective in the assignments God has for us. But just as Jesus overcame Satan by rising from the dead, so can we.
Victory from our negative emotions cannot be found apart from a right relationship with Christ. Once we decide to be a disciple of Jesus, He will love us by disciplining us. Sometimes with negative emotions. Through prayer and repentance, we have hope and victory.
