“For you (Lucifer) have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High” Isaiah 14:13-14.
This describes the first recorded “I WILL” and reveals the heart of Lucifer when he declared he would be greater than God. Self-will must be slain before love can reign. There is only one throne in our hearts and either self will sit as king or Jesus Christ will occupy His rightful place.
SELF is subtle and will fight to hold and maintain control of our thoughts and emotions. Even when we choose the right path with our mind and will, self will never willingly yield its control. It loves to hide in deception and lies that we believe; for all the wrong reasons.
This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon start to uncover the self-life in its many different forms and offer a pathway of practical practice to deal scripturally with a life of messy emotions that are painful, defeating, frustrating; resulting in our own agenda for life, ministry, and relationships.
Prayerfully ask that the Holy Spirit will open our eyes to see “self” with the mind of Christ as the enemy and flesh will be determined to keep us blinded. Jesus Christ through His Word is the way to overcome messy emotions.
