“Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and He knows everything.” 1 John 3:20 (NLT)
God is greater than our feelings.
I love so many things about being a woman. I love the fun girlfriends have shopping and sharing lunch. We laugh loud and love deep. Women care with great compassion. We are emotional beings.
Being emotional is the way God created us. Women are purposed in this way so we can handle crises, share pain with someone who is hurting, defend those who are wronged, and love those who need it. But God did not create us to be emotional creatures so that we would define who we are by how we feel. It must sadden God when we place our worth, define our future, and make decisions based upon how we feel. He created us for so much more than that!
We are easily snared in the feelings trap the enemy sets for us. It is one of his most effective weapons. He uses our emotional state to render us powerless to carry out our day to day responsibilities as well as make us ineffective for the kingdom of God. He plays with our mind causing us to make our feeling bigger than our God.
We are free from the power of our negative feelings and misplaced emotions because GOD IS GREATER THAN OUR FEELINGS.
How do we get rid of misplaced emotions and negative feelings?
Examine their origin and source.
Spend time in prayer asking the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth behind our feelings.
Call on the power of the Holy Spirit in us to push away such feelings.
Who is greater than your feeling? GOD IS!!!!!!!!!!
