If we’re not in control of our emotions, our emotions can lead us down the wrong direction. We all know about negative emotions such as, depression, anger, and hatred. These emotions can lead us to suicide, imprisonment, and becoming a bitter person. We focus on negative emotions but, “positive emotions” can lead us down the wrong path as well.

We may have the positive emotion of excitement to make an impulse purchase. That excitement will eventually fade but, we’re stuck with debt or an item we really don’t use. We may have happy feelings in a relationship that will have us marrying a person too soon. After a year into the marriage, we may see the true side of our spouse and not be satisfied with our decision.

We were never meant to be controlled by our emotions. We are to be led by the Spirit of God. He will tell us how to handle that situation when we get angry. He will also show us how to calm down and make a wise decision. Let’s control our emotions and allow the Spirit of God to direct us in all our ways.

Galatians 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
