Human beings are emotional creatures created in God’s Image.
Shame is the feeling of being alone, worthless and unacceptable no matter what we do.
Our goal as Children of God is to be Christlike with our feelings and emotions.
3 John 1:2 NKJV says, Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
If we do not have a healthy control on our emotions it will affect the success we have as Christians in “all things”.
God wants us to be emotionally connected to the Word of God, that is healthy.
Hebrews 12:2 Net Bible Keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. For the joy set out for him he endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God.
I Corinthians 15:45 NLT The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person.” But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit.
Faith in Jesus Christ and His Word must be first, and then healthy feelings will follow.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 CSB Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight.
Trust in the Lord, not my feelings.
“Emotions don’t make a good engine. They only make a good caboose."
When we follow only our feelings we will do things we shouldn’t and avoid the things that we should do.
Proverbs 28:26 Ampl He who trusts confidently in his own heart is a [dull, thickheaded] fool, But he who walks in [skillful and godly] wisdom will be rescued.
Martin Luther “Feelings come and feelings go, and feelings are deceiving; My warrant is the Word of God, Nothing else is worth believing.”
