‘And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor — Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever ‘
– John 14:16 (AMP)
Our number one enemy is emotions.
We tend to be led by how we feel, but we must realize that feelings are fickle and change from day today.
We should be careful not to follow every thought that comes to our mind because our thoughts and feelings don’t dictate truth to us.
For example, many people are depressed because they can’t face the truth, but the Holy Spirit came to reveal truth to us. We can’t get past depression until we quit making excuses and blaming everyone else.
We must face the truth and take responsibility for our actions. When we do that and ask God to help us, the spirit of heaviness leaves us and we feel light and free.
You can experience victory over your emotions by being led, guided, controlled, and ruled by the Holy Spirit, whom Jesus sent to us as our Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby to remain with us forever.
Thank God, we don’t have to be disappointed, discouraged, despondent, depressed or in despair.
The Holy Spirit gives us victory over our emotions!
Dear Holy Spirit, I can’t control my emotions and behavior on my own. Thank You for helping me by giving me Your power to lead me to victory.
I receive strength and grace to advance in spite of disappointments. I live free of depression, despair, and discouragements today and always in Jesus Name. Amen.
