“Emotions Vs. Reality”


Bishop' inspirational word”  Week 4“Emotions Vs RealityPsalm 33:4-5 says: The word of the Lord is upright, and all His work is done in faithfulness. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the loving kindness of the Lord.

Praise the Lord Beloved. I want to talk to you a little about Your emotions.

Emotions are important. God created them, and He expects us to experience them. He doesn’t expect us to be emotionless machines. But emotions have no intellect. They’re real and powerful, but they don’t think. All we can do with our emotions is react. Emotions will react to a lie just as they react to reality. Emotions even react to things that are not real. That’s why emotions must always be the caboose of the train and never the engine.

You know, in the Garden of Eden, Satan turned the caboose into the engine. By appealing to Eve’s emotions and desire, He convinced Eve to take the fruit and look at it from his perspective. He put reality into the caboose position. So when Eve took the fruit and ate it, she was rejecting reality in favor of her emotions.

Most of the mistakes we make are caused by following our emotions. Emotions are very real, but the question is, are they right or wrong emotions? If you attend a scary film at night, you might have trouble sleeping because of the sense of fear that the film evokes in you. This is true even though neither the characters nor the events in the film were real. Whether or not the source of the emotions is real, often has little to do with how we react in our emotions.

Beloved, as you grow in your walk with Christ, test your emotions against the revealed truth of His Word. Align your actions to the reality rather than responding in your emotions, and you’ll find peace, calm, and a life of stable wisdom.
