The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. Psalms 103:8 New International Version
Think of earthly families okay.
Whether you like to admit it or not, we do inherit undesirable traits from our parents like alcoholism, short temperedness, and of course stubbornness.
Now, the more we submit to Christ, the more we become like Christ.
This is how someone who was cold hearted becomes compassionate, more patient and loving.
This is the only way to conquer our undesirable personality trait.
I used to be very spiteful and hold a grudge for a long time.
Now, when someone wrongs me, I sincerely take it to Jesus and leave it there.
As a consequence my life is filled with more peace and joy.
Only Christ can conquer our undesirable traits.
Then why does He give them to us in the first place you may ask?
It is because we see it is only by His grace and love that these undesirables are conquered and that leads us to exuberant joyful praise to Him. And of course this oozes out of our daily life.
This is, by the way, why it is my personal opinion, psychiatry miserably fails miserably. Their limited reasoning and dope pushing (prescribing drugs like candy) does not and cannot solve the problem.
IMPORATANT There are cases where drugs are necessary like if you have schizophrenia or some other serious mental disability you will have to take medication for the rest of your life. I have seen too many who thought they were better and stopped taking their medication that led to disastrous results. I see those who stay on their medication lead productive lives and when participating in Christian Bible studies become very calm, joyful and peaceful
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropeka (God our healer) for freeing me from the destructive chains of __________ (name any addictions or destructive behavior traits you had that Jehovah has freed you from). I thank you in the name of He whose power cast out the demons in so many when he walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.
. Editors note: it was only when I admitted to Jehovah that the demons of alcoholism were to strong for me to conquer and please rescue me that those horrible chains were smashed and it has been many years since I have touched a drink
Prayer: Please Jehovah Ropeka (God our healer) release me from the prison of ________ (write down your any destructive addictions or behavior traits you need to be freed from). I in deepest need request this in the name of He who has promised to set all the prisoners free Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
