Human Emotion is very complicated as it represents a vast area of our desires, affections and feelings. In Today’s session, we will further probe the human emotion to better understand how to curb them as believers.
These three aspects of our emotions; desires, affections and feelings all belong to the realm of the soul. A realm, that the Bible teaches still needs to be saved (James 1:21).
In the first series, I discussed how that God began to teach me to handle my emotions because I was finding it difficult to still them especially in the matter of Love.
Okay! so let me come clear, day-dreaming about the opposite sex who caught my attention and excited my reason for commitment without any struggle was recurring. Well! many of you can describe that as intricacies of love. That was my view then but something wasn’t just right, so going forward, God needed to deal with them; I needed help.
Raging and misplaced emotions aside causing harm, presents a perfect opportunity for a foothold to the devil.
Exactly what happened! Because it seemed on many of those occasions my emotions became stronger and were clearly in charge.
And so for some of us, that may be our story. For others it is our anger. And we have not yet figured out how to handle them and subject them under God’s control. And still for others; misplaced feelings and desires. But whatever the case, we need to pay attention to these and for believers in the Lord let us always remember, we have a charge to keep and a God to glorify.
Jesus to glorify and a world to mortify; shining as lights in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation and in case we grow weary let us not lose hope. “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15 KJV).
Our Lord became man and is not surprised by any of our shortcomings, He is only waiting for us to call upon Him. For He knoweth our frame and remembereth that we are dust.
God bless us for reading.
