Are we Conquered by our Emotions?

Are we conquered by our emotions, or ruled by the Spirit of the living God? Many times we found ourselves controlled by our own emotions and self-will, rather than relying and depending on our living God for our decisions. We usually regretted it after our rash action. Let us not be ruled by our own emotions, but rather seek God and His Word.

There are three areas that directed and controlled us. Our spirit, will and emotion. Do our spirit sync in line with the Spirit of God in every decision that we made? Do we take charge and take control over all the decisions that we have to make in life, or do our will and emotions stand in the way in us operating according to Godís guidance?

If we are ruled by our own emotions and will, chances is that we can never be in line with Godís will in our lives because we are not depending on the Holy Spirit, but rather in our own action. If we made decisions on our own, we will realize that we can be very frustrated.

Our thought life must be trained to think about Christ at all times, and we must be guided and led by the Holy Spirit in everything that we do. We must be yielded to Him, led and guided by Him through each step of our ways. We must take charge over our total being and not allow the emotions to determine or decide what we should do. Our spirit can be led by the Holy Spirit and we are to live a life of the spirit.

We must subject our will to our spirit, to hear what God is saying and act upon any decision. As our will is in line with the Word of God, we can then do great mighty exploits through the leading of the Holy Spirit. Let us subject our will and emotions to the Spirit of the living God, and let us walk in harmony with the Holy Spirit.

One of the questions that we need to ask is, are we conquered by our own emotions when we made decision? Are our decisions based on our emotional respond, or are they trained by our spirit-man to discern what needs to be done? Our decisions must be ruled by the Spirit of God, with our own spirit identifying with Him, and walking and abiding with Christ as we are led by Him.

May we be led by the Spirit of God so that we can walk in our destiny and fulfilled all that God has for us.

Lord, help me to walk in the Spirit and not be dictated by my own spirit. I will make decisions based on Your guidance and leading and not by my own emotions. Guide me Lord, with Your Spirit, that I may walk with You and in You through all the decisions that I made. May I be led by the Spirit of the living God and not go my own way or have my own ideas. In Jesus name I pray, amen.
