The Secret Of Heart Guiding

The Secret Of Heart Guiding…

When I was growing up, I used to take my dog, Princess, for walks. Whenever Princess saw something of interest, another dog, a rabbit, a mailman, she would take off after it – or she would try.

I was on the other end of the leash and it was my job to restrain her. Either I was going to be pulled by Princess, or Princess was going to be led by me.

It’s the same way with our feelings, our emotions, our desires, our lusts, even our thoughts. Our thoughts and feelings tend to go all over the place, and to things they have no business going after.

Most people are led by their emotions and their thoughts, even many believers. But that’s like a man being led by a dog. God has called us to take every thought captive to the obedience of Jesus.

That means you can have victory over every thought, every whim, desire, lust, and feeling. But you have to choose to take control.

The next time that thought, that feeling, that temptation comes up, you reign it in to the obedience of God – just remember whose on the other end of the leash.

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete. 2 Corinthians 10:4-6

Today make it a point not to be led by your feelings, or your flesh. Learn to not be led, but to lead these things, even your emotions as you are led only by the Word and Spirit of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love.always,

Ed
