It doesn’t matter if it’s you, or your kids, the enemy is working hard in the world to hijack you and your family emotionally. At the same time, it’s telling you to let your life be led by those emotions. Then we wonder why people are lost in their identities when the world is really leading them away from their true identity in Christ – based on how they feel. Your emotions are an important part of how God created you to be. But they should not be running the show. Watch this video and find out why the Easter message carries way beyond the holiday. You have to know that you can approach the throne of grace with confidence and why your degree doesn’t matter when it comes to Godly wisdom.

Listen as I point out many ways the world is distracting us and why we all need to just get back to the one who knows our hearts better than anyone else. You aren’t going to hear any of this out there in the regular media, which is why it’s such an important message. Don’t miss it.

Scriptures

“He himself bore our sins’ in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

“Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death — that is, the devil — and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely is is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.” Hebrews 2:14-18

“Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefor he is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Such a high priest truly meets our need – one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted in the heavens.” Hebrews 7:23-26

“I am the truth, the way and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through me,” John 14:6

“Now the main point of what I’m saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, and who serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not a mere human being.” Hebrews 8:1-2

“But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that it to say, is not part of this creation. He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood; thus obtaining eternal redemption.” Hebrews 9:11-12

“How much more then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!

For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance – now that he has died as a random to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.” Hebrews 8:14-15

“Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, His body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10:19-25

“The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? I THE LORD search the heart and examine the mind…”Jeremiah 17:9-10

“Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.” 1 John 3:20, NLT

“My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are LIFE to THOSE WHO FIND THEM and HEALTH to one’s WHOLE BODY. ABOVE ALL ELSE GUARD YOUR HEART, for everything you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:20-23

“Do not forsake wisdom and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.” Proverbs 4:6-7
