Dealing With Our Emotions

As Christians we must learn to control our emotions.  In fact, Apostle Paul said “Be ye angry and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath (Eph 4:26).”  In essence, what he was telling us is that there is nothing wrong with anger as long as it is pointed in the right direction.  Thus, if we are to be angry we should be angry at what sin has done to America.  Further, he was also teaching us that we must learn to control our emotions. As physical feelings are to the body, so are our emotions to the soul.  Child of God nobody really enjoys pain; however, if you didn’t feel pain, you would be in danger of serious injury and infection.  And if you didn’t feel anger, joy, sorrow…etc; your soul would be in trouble.  Emotions are God’s alarm system to let us know what is going on inside of us, and without them we are a shell of a human being.  Emotions are not necessarily good or bad, they are a part of the human makeup.  Just like we respond to physical pain in our bodies, we also need to respond to the emotional signals going on inside of us.  There are a number of ways to deal with our emotions: We can deal with them through the flesh, the world, or Satan, or we can deal with them through the power of the Holy Spirit.  We can keep our emotions locked up inside of us until it starts eating us up from the inside out, or we can share that which is locked up inside of us with someone who loves, cares and will pray for us and with us.  Thus, at the end of the day the Lord’s concern is that we be spiritually and emotionally whole.  Therefore, it behooves all of us to examine our emotional and spiritual makeup; because the one who made us is well able to show us where we are.
