Do not let your emotions control you

@Guard your heart more than anything else that needs to be guarded, for out of it comes life!” (Proverbs 4:23)

As you live your daily life, you have the ability to live according to God’s unchanging principles or your ever-changing feelings. By living according to God’s Word, you have stability. But when you live by your feelings, life is like the rollercoaster. God wants to bring spiritual maturity into your life, and for that you have to cooperate with Him. This, in turn, means that you have to decide every day whose will you will live by.

When living according to God’s will becomes a habit, you will find that life is much more enjoyable.

“Guard your heart more than anything else that needs to be guarded, because it is where life comes from!” (Prov. 4:23) Feelings arise from thinking, not the other way around. That’s why Paul’s call: “Let’s take all our thoughts captive to the obey Yeshua.” (2 Cor 10:5) In other words – if the thought is not compatible with the Word of God, do not let it grow and take up space, “for we walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Cor. 5:7)

It may seem surprising, but as a believer, you do not always feel God’s presence.

When Yeshua appeared to two of His disciples on the road to Emmaus, they did not recognize him. They were too busy with their feelings. So how did Yeshua get them out of their negative feelings?

“And beginning with Moses and the Prophets, Yeshua explained to them from all the letters what is about Him.” (Lk 26:27) The main thing is: Let the Word of God guide you.
