In creating mankind, You gave us emotions. We have the ability to feel things deeply. We love, we mourn, we laugh, and a myriad of other emotions. Our feelings bring a richness…a depth to our existence.
You have also established absolute truth to guide us through life. You intend for us to make life choices…not based on emotions but on truth. The enemy has taught us to follow our feelings, knowing they will always lead us to destruction. Teach me to acknowledge my emotions and to be sensitive to others’ feelings, but never let emotions replace truth as my guide. May my decisions always reflect honor on You.
When I override my feelings to make hard decisions, You have promised to be with me and sustain me.
“When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it” Luke 19:41
