2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Emotions follow your thoughts. Are you wearing any negative emotions lately?
When we think of emotions, a lot of times they are the “big” ones like hatred or anger but what about being anxious, sad, discouraged, ashamed or annoyed? Hating someone or being angry is clearly not acceptable but we have sometimes categorized being sad or ashamed as being acceptable.
If your thoughts are not producing a sound mind, one free of any kind of fear, then your thoughts need to be redirected by The Living Word of God! Do you feel the power and love of the Lord flowing through you? Are your emotions negative? Then get into the Word! Tell your thoughts what they should be thinking! Quote some verses like the one above. Say them out loud all day. Allyson’s thin, easy to read book Victorious Living is full of verses that you can quickly find and encourage your spirit with. Remember, life and death are in the power of the tongue, so speak life and your thoughts and emotions will follow!
