TOPIC: Healing Your Emotions (I)

Fire Scripture

Eph. 4:17-30


God made everything beautiful from the beginning of the world. He declared them as “good”. (Gen.1:31). Whenever anything goes wrong it is definitely not from God, but from self, sin or satan, the enemy of our soul. The Psalmist said that we are ” fearfully and wonderfully made (Ps. 139:14a). Emotion is an integral part of our being. It could be a mental reaction or a strong feeling in response to an occurrence or a person.

It manifests through thoughts, actions and words. It can be positive or negative. It forms a relative percentage of a person’s character and may determine how far a person can go in life. It speaks about your level of success or failure in life. It is a revealer of your personality and who you are on the inside. God expects His children to possess and manifest positive emotions. We are Christ’s and should emulate as well as demonstrate Christlike virtues. God has emotions.

The same is true of Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We read of statements like, “and it pleased God; “it grieved God”; “do not grieve the Holy Spirit”; “Jesus wept” and many more. God is the embodiment of love. Jesus is the Prince of Peace! The Holy Spirit provokes joy in believers. That is why we are enjoined to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit as stated in Gal. 5:21-22.

Negative emotions are all rooted in the works of the flesh (Gal. 5:19-21). The Bible warns us seriously against such. Those who engage in it will not inherit the Kingdom of God. These works of the flesh include anger, pride, fear, hatred, envy, bitterness, strife, malice, sadness, unstable moods, selfishness, self-centeredness, unforgiveness, ungodly thoughts and negative imaginations, foul language and many more. The very root of all of these is the heart or the mind of man.

Proverbs 4:23 counsels that you keep your heart with all diligence and not allow negativity to invade and dominate it. Your emotions should therefore spring from pure and godly motives and not from negative and selfish motives. Living in carnality as a Child of God and not walking in the Spirit would make you satisfy the lusts of the flesh and not the Spirit of God (Gal. 5:16-18). This is a sin, an indication that there is no indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.

If the vessel of your life has been polluted with these negative emotions, how then can you claim to be holy? (1 Cor. 3:16-17). There is need for a purging, a spiritual sanitation of your heart by the power of God. He is our Maker and can put right whatever goes wrong. He is the Potter and knows where the clay is marred.

He can bring out a better you from the satanic mess of negative emotions. Don’t pamper them; rather, cry to God in prayer. Discipline yourself and let Him help you think, talk and be better behaved. I pray for a new you, in the name of Jesus.

Memory verse

3 John 2 – “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest propsper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

Motivational Quote

Your thoughts affect your emotions, your emotions affect your decisions, and your decisions eventually affect your life positively or negatively. Therefore, make a choice!

Prophetic Word

As you surrender all to God today, He will address every crack in the wall of your life, remould and reshape you to become better than before, in the name of Jesus.


Burdens are lifted at Calvary

1. Days are filled with sorrow and care,

Hearts are lonely and drear;

Burdens are lifted at Calvary,

Jesus is very near.


Burdens are lifted at Calvary,

Calvary, Calvary;

2. Cast your care on Jesus today,

Leave your worry and fear;

Burdens are lifted at Calvary

Jesus is very near.

3. Troubled soul, the Saviour can see

Ev’ry heartache and tear;

Burdens are lifted at Calvary.
