Yesterday in DIG we looked at the words Jesus told His disciples as they went into a real crisis situation; He told them to keep control of their emotions.
He is also telling us the same today, and we can do it.
You may have read the DIG yesterday and thought, that is all well and done, but how can I keep control of my emotions.
Well, the good news is that Jesus also tells us this in John 14 v 1.
He says, “ye believe in God, believe also in me”.
The key to controlling your emotions is to focus on what Jesus has done, who He is and then to believe these truths.
Yes, it really is that simple; it may not be easy at times, but it is simple.
If we keep our mind focussed on the Lord we will stay in peace (Isaiah 26 v 3), in other words keep control of our emotions.
Letting our emotions run away with us is not living in peace.
Meditating on, focussing on and believing in Jesus and His finished work is key to staying in control of our emotions.
Fear, panic and worry are not in line with what Jesus has done for us.
Fear, panic and worry are not part of His plan for our lives, they play no part in life in abundance (John 10 v 10).
If we know and believe for example that we are healed and prosperous, when sickness and poverty try to come upon us we can tell them where to go.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ, and thank you for the abundant life He has provided for me”.
John 14 v 1…..Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me
