When serving God, we must eliminate our emotions of feelings to engage faith; our emotions are connected to our understanding. Our understanding fights against God's understanding and wisdom. Proverbs 3:5 says, "Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make".
What resources does the enemy use to be able to lie to us?
Adverse - preventing success or development.
He draws from our past sins, past pain, past experiences, negative and positive.
He draws from his past experiences and strategies that worked on humans whom he could deceive and enslave.
He uses our flesh to move us, our eyes to capture us, and our emotions to enslave us.
The importance of walking by faith and not y sight or our feelings. 2 Timothy 2:23-26
The devil and demons' job are to bring us into self-condemnation. Romans 14:22
When demonic forces see the truth in us, they see Christ. Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Life.
Truth with a hint of a lie allows them to have activity in our lives and they build off that lie. The enemies of God understand that truth brings separation from darkness in the spiritual realm.
In today's society, we have attached our feelings to pleasure and situations. Paul gave us the keys to understand how we attach ourselves. 2 Timothy 3:1-5
Serve God and not self or from our emotions (how we feel).
