Sink Or Swim…The Devastating Truth Of Swimming In Our Emotions
Many are unaware that we as human beings are triune beings...that's right we come in three parts…we are multidimensional and not just in shape and form…but also in creative formation by God. (1 Thessalonians 5:23).
There are three parts to us: First there’s our body (Genesis 2:7); Secondly there's our spirit (Genesis 2:7) and Lastly there's our soul. The body portion of this multifaceted creation is the physical element of our being that was formed from the dust of the earth. Our spirit is the very DNA breathed into us by God Our Creator...this is where we connect with Abba Father. Our soul is where our emotions, thoughts and ideas are housed…everything that we have encountered in our lifetime whether good or bad…has assisted in shaping this soul of ours.
This last house…the Soul or as many call it the Soulish Realm is the very thing that the enemy is trying to steal, kill and destroy on a continual basis. Morning, noon and night…day in and day out. It is sad to say but...it is in this very place that many have not taken full advantage of the Work of the CROSS. It is here in our soul that the ENEMY OF OUR SOUL attempts to knock us off kilter. IF we are not careful we will allow our soul to overrule and override the leading and guiding of the Holy Ghost; Who has taken up residence within our spirit on that great day of our salvation and indwelling.
Oftentimes in the Body of Christ we see those who have professed to be free and delivered…yet not so much. Obtaining that sure freedom takes daily work to press pass the muck and mire of our emotions.
Our emotional and temperamental responses can and most often will stem from feelings of hurt, betrayal, pain, abandonment, mistreatment, rejection and dejection. However, it takes us listening to and obeying the voice of the Holy Spirit as it relates to US and THIS destruction.
Little do we know it but we have these tell-tale signs that unknowingly crop up and expose us many times when we speak and behave in various situations. But God…But God is saying that He desires us to be FREE FROM THIS BONDAGE. You see this cesspool that we call emotions has taken its toll on many a people…and it’s time as the PEOPLE OF GOD…to decide if we will SINK IN IT…or SWIM ASHORE TO DRY, FERTILE land…the Heart of Abba.
Today is a great day to leave the devastation behind and command our soul to ALIGN ITSELF WITH THE WILL AND PURPOSE OF THE FATHER…the Work of the Cross is not limited to Salvation...He was beaten and wounded, buried and has risen...so that we are emotionally clean and free. The Love of the Father transcends all earthly experiences that we have had to encounter. Be free today.
Below are some scriptures to meditate on while the Holy Spirit heals and delivers...Free Indeed.
Galatians 5:16-24 ESV
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions.
Galatians 5:22-23 ESV
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
2 Peter 1:5-9 ESV
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins.
Ephesians 6:11-17 ESV
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
Ephesians 4:1-32 ESV
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
1 John 2:16 ESV
For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.
Romans 8:28 ESV
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Proverbs 12:16 ESV
The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent ignores an insult.
Ephesians 4:26-27 ESV
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.
Galatians 5:17 ESV
For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
Luke 6:45 ESV
The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
Romans 13:4 ESV
For he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer.
