FOR WE ARE GOD'S WORKMANSHIP

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against
the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the
obedience of Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5

In our lives we experience a variety of emotions and feelings, yet we must
restrain ourselves from living according to our feelings. Just because
something feels right does not necessarily mean that it is right. We must
align our reactions to every situation according to the word of God. We
place our trust and confidence in Him, not our feelings and emotions. Even
the good experiences in our lives can turn sour if we allow our feelings and
emotions to manipulate our actions. Hurt feelings can easily turn to anger
and bitterness, feelings of love can be taken inappropriately, even
happiness and contentment can swerve off course and turn to laziness and
procrastination if we are not bringing our feelings in line according to
God's word. Without emotions life would be dull, yet at the same time we
cannot allow them to rule our lives.

Prayer

Thank You Jesus for the ability to feel emotions and enjoy the precious life
You have given. Help me Lord, to live my life according to Your word, and to
bring my feelings and emotions in line according to what You say, not simply
because I feel it. Amen.
