Emotions are powerful things! I am going to tell you something you know, but seldom really think about: You can control your emotions or your emotions will control you. Some of the emotions that we experience in life are negative and they seek to dominate and control us. Fear, anger, frustration, lust and discouragement will turn you into a slave, if you are not careful. These negative emotions eat at us, steal our joy and rob us of our peace. Negative emotions are like a cancer, they seek to destroy everything they can.
God wants you to have positive emotions such as love, joy and peace! Jesus Christ came and died on the cross, so that you could have love, joy and peace! The Holy Spirit is active and alive right now, so that you can have love, joy and peace! Don’t let the devil and the negative emotions of this life keep you from having, experiencing and living in all of the amazing power that God has for you.
You will have challenges and you will face hard and difficult times, but stay positive, trust God and you will discover that your courage and confidence in Him, will empower you to think, feel, act and experience victory – no matter what the circumstances! Emotions do not have to be a bad thing. We just have to learn how to use our emotions, rather than have them use us.
Here are a few things that you can do today to deal with your emotions: 1.) Take some time to pray! Just talk to God and tell Him what is going on in your life and how you feel. He will not be surprised or caught off guard. 2.) Make some time to listen! Open your heart and mind and listen for what the Spirit of God is saying to you. (The Bible is always a good resource in listening!) 3.) Refocus your life! Take what you have said to God and what God has said to you and get your life into alignment with Him!
God is who He says He is and you can trust in Him!
