Emotions : Dealing With Our Feelings
By: Ron Piggott
What does the Bible say about feelings? Jesus cares about your emotional state. The Bible has many passages that deal with emotions and are able to help you face them and be healed from the hurts of life. Click on the feeling below to bring up lessons we are able to learn from the Bible and the Bible passages which talk about the feeling.
Practical advice on dealing with your emotions
Don't make major decisions when you are under a lot of emotional stress. Take time to deal with the pressing matters. As time passes it will become easier to face the more difficult decisions.
Don't make major decisions when you are physically tired. Your emotions may get in the way of making the best decision.
When praying for God to heal your emotions bring them to the cross that held Jesus. In Isaiah 53:4-6 we read that Jesus took our sorrows on Himself when He died on the cross. "Lord I nail my anger to your cross" may be a prayer you pray while dealing with the hurts from anger in your life.
Forgiveness is key in a breakthrough with your emotions. Unforgiveness leads to bitterness and gives Satan a foothold in your life. As well unforgiveness leads to health problems. Placing the pain on Jesus releases it from your life. He took our pain when He went to the cross for us. "Lord I forgive Jacob for hurting me when He gossiped about me" is a prayer you may use. Exchange the name and event for the situation you are facing. The Lord will deal justly with the other person. You are responsible for your actions and you are able to forgive the person from hurting you. Without forgiving the person who hurt you will damage your relationship with the Lord. Remember the purpose of Jesus in your life. He is your Saviour and He is able to bring you through times like these. Forgiveness is the key that would allow the relationship to be restored.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to give you understanding over the situation you are facing. His wisdom and insight will change your perspective on the situation. Understand that at times there is more then meets the eye going on in the person who may have hurt you. Situations in the present trip undealt with issues from the past off. We haven't fully dealt with something until we have been to the cross.
Our emotions are able to warn us that we are in danger.
Pray for your emotions that they won't run your life but that you will be guided by the Holy Spirit.
Do you wish to ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior? May we help you take this step?

Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God; to be at peace with God; to have your sins forgiven; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God.
