Our Emotions

Read Genesis 1:26-27

Wow! God made us in His IMAGE! We are unique in comparison to all other created things. Have you ever thought about this when it comes to our emotions? Feelings of sadness, happiness, joy, gratitude, loneliness, were all given to us by God. Unfortunately we, unlike God, are sinful and we often misuse our emotions. For example we can have feelings of anger when things don’t go the way we planned. Or maybe we feel jealous that someone has something that we want or wish we could have. Sometimes our emotions can mislead us. We can often feel scared or nervous about situations that are completely safe. Have you ever watched a movie that made you scared to go into a dark room? There is nothing in that room that is harmful but our emotions tell us that danger is lurking in the room. Then you turn the light on and all is well!!! Silly, right?! So how do we keep our emotions in check??? Psalm 119:105 says Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path, We can use God’s Word to shine a light on our emotions to see if they line up with the TRUTH. The best way to do this is to be reading the Bible daily so that you will be able to know God’s heart and what He has to say.
