The Gate of Feeling
Morning Thought: Feelings are a gift from God, but also the focus of the enemy’s fury. In the same way Babylon invaded ancient Jerusalem, darkness tries to bombard this gate until it is razed to the ground, leaving you in deep distress. There is hope. Let the Holy Spirit into your emotions. He will be like Nehemiah: comforting, restoring and rebuilding your soul for God’s glory. “Then I [Nehemiah] said to them, “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace” (Nehemiah 2:17, NIV).
