Peace and Blessing in the name of Jesus Christ! We began this month with learning about our emotions and the actual reasons why humans were created with emotions. However, just knowing these alone is not all there is about emotions. We should know how to control it and danger signs to watch out for so we do not fall victims of the effect of negative use of our emotions.
Firstly, let’s understand some of the manifestations of uncontrolled emotions:
Manifestations of Uncontrolled Emotions
Abraham was 100 years old without a child, but he didn’t give in to worries. Rather the Bible says he was strong in faith, giving glory to God (Romans 4:20). That gave him the miracle he had long expected. One thing that worry does is to tie you to the past and those who are tied to the past never see or experience the good of the future.
The truth is: To be totally free from jealousy you must ask God to reveal yourself to you, then live as you are destined to. Remember, jealousy always opens the door to the enemy. You will not be destroyed in Jesus’ name!
So it is important therefore, to always keep your anger in check, try not to speak too often when angry and watch your actions at this point. This will culminate in a distinguished life.
We have known some of the negative emotional outburst, but we must also learn how to keep how emotions balanced.
How to control your Emotions
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).
To be emotionally balanced, you need to read, mediate and practise the Word daily until your mind is saturated with it and you become a practical example of the Word of God.
Bitterness embitters destiny, so flee from it. Do not let anyone or the successes of other break your heart, you do not have a spare. You must guide your emotions with all sense of responsibility.
Today, I decree that whatever you might have lost in the past as a result of uncontrolled emotions, God will not only restore it to you, but according to Isaiah 61:7, He will give you double. It is well with you!
However, you must understand that there is a foundation to receiving help from God and that is through Jesus Christ. You must first accept Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life by confessing and forsaking your sins.
Therefore, if you have not done that or you might have probably walked away from the vow you have made to Him in the past. You must say this prayer in faith right away:
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary.
