God’s not going to force His shield on you. If you’re fighting it, He’ll withdraw. He will wait until your heart is open to Him, but in the interim – o, forceful one – where is your shield?
YIELD TO OUR MASTER, and receive His blessings and benefits in protection for you. Learn to receive. For, if you take the reins, it’s all on you, and you don’t know what you’re doing! Without Him, no one does…
When emotions are triggered by occurrences, don’t always consider you’re being attacked by the enemy.
God has a way of using those triggers to call up corrosive elements of our psyche or emotions He desires to deliver from our lives.
Ever heard a song from your childhood that transported you right back there and brought you to tears?
I have; and, when I’ve asked the Lord what in the world is going on with me – always ask the Lord, y’all – He asks me to release the weight of emotion to His loving arms… to forgive what or who needs forgiving (sometimes it’s just me), and to yield to His control the sinewy mess of hurts and woundings attached to it.
Stay in touch with God regularly, that’s the only way you’ll know. He’s the key to your freedom, for He alone holds the plan of deliverance for your life. Stay in touch, beloved. Stay in touch.
