Inner Vows

Updated: 5 days ago




 

Reactions can make us or break us.

 

1 Peter 5:6-7

 

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

 

Ephesians 4:26-27

 

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.

  

Why do we overreact?             

 

Why do we underreact?

 

 2 Peter 2:19

 

They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.”

 

Matthew 7:16-20

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, you will recognize them by their fruits.

 Vows are very powerful Masters.

 

 

Give all your heart to Healthy Vows.

 

Galatians 5:22

 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness

 

Free your heart from Unhealthy Vows.

 

Psalm 18:2

 

Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions.

 

Psalm 18:7

 

The mouths of fools are their undoing, and their lips are a snare to their very lives. 

 

Take note of your Spoken Vows.

 

 Colossians 2:20-21

 

Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”?

 

Discover your Inner Vows

 

2 Peter 2:19

 

 They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.”

 

Values come from the heart so when the heart gets wounded, we often make lifetime vows.

 

If my reactions are getting me in trouble or leaving me empty, what do I do?
