Emotional pain is a deception of comfort. If we’re in enough emotional pain, we get use to the feeling of sadness and depression, we like the attention we receive from others, and we don’t want to get out.

Staying in this sunken place can cause us to lose hope, not capitalize on the opportunities God provides, and minimize God’s blessings.

Regardless of the addictive feeling emotional pain can provide, it’s not God’s best and it’s not where we should be. We have to fight the attack of the enemy against our minds by enjoying life on purpose. Things may not look good, but we should still smile. Our funds may be low, but we can still enjoy our day. Everything may not be perfect, but we should choose joy.

Fight off the spirit of emotional pain and choose to enjoy each and every day.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
