It’s Time to Get Up

It’s time to get up. We are in a time where we need to stand up and be bold in Christ. The enemy wants to bring fear and doubt. He wants us to feel inferior and question our worth in God.

Emotional Monster of Insecurity

Emotional Monster of Insecurity

Where do our insecurities come from? Insecurity comes from misplaced identity. Security comes from God. We often seek security in people and everything other than God. We focus more on pleasing others than pleasing God. Instead of putting our faith and confidence in Him, we focus more on how others see us than how God sees us. Develop a relationship with God where you are secure in who you are through Him.

Three Ways to Take Control of the Emotional Monsters

The life we have is a reflection of the thoughts we think. Our mind is a battlefield of God’s truth and Satan’s lies. Our emotions are driven by the thoughts we think. Be aware of strong emotions that cause stress, such as guilt and anger. When the mind is stressed, so is the body. We are not in this alone. Stop trying to manage your emotions and stress on your own. Jesus is always there to help us. Cast on Him all of the cares. He cares for us. All we have to do is humble ourselves, admit we need Him, and He will restore us.

Emotional Monsters | From a Cave to a Grave

There is one emotion we have all felt, hurt. Whether it was something minor or major, we have been hurt. However, we cannot let past hurt become a personal cave that keeps us from God’s promises. He is speaking to us and we can stand on His Word. The enemy’s mission is to keep us in these dark places where he can prey on us. God, our Father is calling us out of the cave. We are more than conquerors through Christ. Satan wants to keep us bound. God wants us to move forward.
