“He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.” Prov. 25:28
Today’s Christian Daily Devotional
Do you feel broken down?Ask yourself if you let your emotions get the best of you. I have this problem and have to give it to God daily. It is important to do this, because when we don’t allow God to control our emotions, we make ourselves vulnerable to attacks from the devil. Life is hard enough all ready. It makes no sense to take down your own defenses, right?
“Dear Heavenly Father,
I want to be strong and to have all my defensive walls against the enemy intact. Help me to give you control over my spirit. I am an emotional person, and it is easy for me to make that as an excuse for behavior that will only hurt me and your goals for my life. I give you my emotions and exchange them for your wisdom to handle all situations in a peaceful manner, as you have instructed all believers to pursue. Thank you for guiding me, for helping me to be strong for you and the work I am called to do for your kingdom.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.”
