Jeremiah 10:23 I know, O LORD, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.
Things in the world are so temporary and that includes our emotions. Our feelings are temporary. Yes, shocking right? Not really. One minute a person falls in love and within that same day finds love somewhere else. Is that possible? Can that be true? The answer to that is yes. Why? Our emotions can easily change towards people based off the wrong look, person says the wrong thing, or you become offended by something or someone. We are human beings and our flesh is so easily moved by any and everything sometimes. It's surprising how our emotions can change when the situation changes in our lives. For example, when it rains outside, seems your mood changes just because it rains. You don't want to go to work, school, or do the daily activities you have done for years. Rain, can change our emotions!
My mother told me, When making life decisions, you can't trust your feelings but you can trust your Spirit! Your emotions can take you as my sister says to, " A Beautiful Place but a Bad Situation," meaning it looks good from your point of view but when you step back and look at the BIGGER picture it is a bad situation in the long run. My mother always taught us as women to step out of a situation look at it from someone else's point of view. What advice would you give a friend? Take yourself out of it. To be honest it is hard to take our heart out of things. To not get offended, hurt, or upset. That is why we must trust our Spirit. The spirit of God that speaks to us daily if we will just listen. We must also give our heart to God. He asked for it.
Pr 23:26 My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
If there is doubt in your Spirit then God just gave you your answer but there are times you need to change your prayer in order to get an answer from God. Maybe your not asking the right questions or praying the right way. You must take the time to ask God to give you a clear understanding. Daily ask him for wisdom and knowledge in just every life. There is not a time we do not need God's wisdom and knowledge in understanding things in our lives.
Proverbs 16:9 In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.
That is why we can not rely on our emotions and feelings in times of trouble. We must remember that standing on the promises of God is standing on a solid rock. God's words never change! He has always been the same since the beginning of time. He will never leave you nor forsake you! We must stay rooted and grounded in the word of God in order to know his voice when we hear it. Seek the Kingdom of Heaven in everything that you do.
