Our soul is made up of our mind, our emotions and our will

Our soul is made up of our mind, our emotions and our will. The enemy will try to mess with our minds by planting wrong thoughts there, and he will also try to sensitise our emotions to provoke us to foolish or harmful actions but he cannot make choices for us. We have sovereignty over our own will. We may choose to yield that will to another, but it is still our choice.
So when your thoughts and emotions are under attack and temptation remember that you get to choose and also remember “God is faithful, and he will not allow you to be tempted beyond your strength.” (1 Corinthians 10: 13)
God does not violate our will, even when He sees us making bad choices. Neither is the enemy able to choose for us, in fact our relationship with Jesus gives us authority over the enemy.
The goal for us is to continually make good choices. “The world and its desires are fading away, but the person who does God’s will remains forever.” (1 John 2: 17).
