Mind, Will, and Emotions

We have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.

(1 Corinthians 2:16)

When we invite Jess to come into our hearts, the Holy Spirit makes His home in us. From that position in our hearts, which are the very centers of our beings, the Holy Spirit begins a purifying work in our souls (our minds, wills, and emotions).

Our minds tell us what we think,  not what god thinks. The Holy Spirit is working in us to change that. We have to learn how to think in agreement with God, how to be vessels for God to think through. Old thoughts must be purified from us, and new thoughts-thoughts from God-must become part of our thinking.

Our emotions tell us how we feel, not how God feels about situations, people, and the decisions we make. According to Psalm 7:9, God tests and tries our emotions. He works with us until we are not moved by human emotion alone, but by His Spirit.

Our wills tell us what we want, not what God wants. The will over rides emotions and even thoughts. We can use it to do the right thing even when we don't feel like doing it. We have a free will, and God will not force us to do anything. He leads us by His Spirit into what He knows will be good for us, but the final decisions are ours to make. God wants us to regularly make decisions that are in agreement with His will, not our wills.

As these three areas of our lives-mind, will, and emotions-come under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the leadership of the Holy Spirit, we will become increasingly mature as believers.

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY: You can manage your emotions instead of letting them manage you.
