Feelings & Emotions

Feelings are given to us by God in order that we can experience emotions.

DSC_0310 2 copyJesus experienced joy, wept and had righteous anger. However He distinguished His emotions from reason and so must we. The emotion of anger is an internal alarm to warn us of possible threatening situations or conditions. If we discipline our children, for example, by using our anger in ways that devalue them or provoke them to anger, we misuse emotion.

Even though feelings are important , we should not allow them to to direct our behaviour. 

The approach of a Christian who has a mind of Christ should be “I know what I think and how I feel, but I will do what God instructs”.
We therefore should be conformed to the image of Christ in all out thoughts and deeds.

Prayer: Father guide my heart from every onslaught of emotions that are not from you and help me into the knowledge of your truth always as I receive wisdom from your Word in Jesus name.

Amen

God is a God of truth

Apostle Williams at John Wesley's ChurchGod is a God of truth:¬†In fact the bible says it is impossible for Him to lie (Hebrews 6:18). He gives us His truth in every situation to apply to our thoughts. “and you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free” John 8:32. Therefore, if you’re not free, which lie of the devil are you believing in as truth in your life?

The bible says that the peace of God guards our minds. God protects us in this way because wrong thoughts are a breeding ground for satan’s lies, and there is no truth in satan according to John 8:44.

Therefore make your biggest personal goal this month to be to have a “Mind of Christ” in you.

Prayer: This year , my mind will not be moved by negative news but my mind will only be moved by the Word of God alone. My mind will be governed by the power of The Holy Spirit in Jesus name.

Amen.
