Often times we are stuck in feeling the emotions that come with a situation we have experienced. It is important to recognize these feelings and own them. Don’t let them own you. This doesn’t mean you can’t feel the feelings because you should, in fact, it is important to work through your feelings. You could find yourself living the consequences of acting out based on your feelings at the present moment. You may never get over the hurt you have experienced and continue to live in the past. These moments of overcoming are vital to your growth as a person and will light the way on your continued path to discovering your purpose and experiencing revelations from God.
Steps To Overcoming Your Emotions:
- Prayer is a powerful tool because you are communicating with God who loves you and has your best interests at heart. Be sure to allow Him time to speak to you. Sometimes prayer is simply being in God’s presence and allowing Him to do the talking.
- Tell Jesus about it. Your time to talk – whenever you need to! Be open and be honest. He knew you would the way you are feeling at this very moment before you were even born. Talk to Him like you would your best friend. I say this because no matter what your best friend says, it may feel good and be the right thing for a moment. Jesus is the only way to obtain peace and reassurance for your situation.
- Acknowledge how and why you are feeling the way you are.
- Ask God to reveal areas in your life that need to change and where you were wrong.
- Ask for forgiveness.
- Be willing to accept what He will reveal.
- Rebuke the feelings and thoughts the enemy places in your mind in Jesus’ name and plead the blood of Jesus! Remember that Jesus brings joy, love, encouragement, forgiveness, and peace. If you are feeling anything else, it is from the enemy. He will tell you that you are unworthy of forgiveness, love, and will discourage you from trying.
- Claim the verse and ask Him to give you the peace that is mentioned in Philippians 4:7
I will leave you with this verse:
2 Peter 1:5-7 | For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
