How do we fight off emotions when we have every right to feel angry or worried? Is it possible to obtain peace and joy in the midst of frustration? The answer to these questions lies in the power of God. Only God can change our hearts. We are called to stand firm in the Lord and in His mighty power.
I was battling feelings of hurt and anger towards someone and couldn’t shake off the emotions. No matter how hard I tried to think positively, I found myself getting wounded by the pain.
During my time with Jesus, He reminded me to stand firm. I was then led to Ephesians 6:10 which says, “Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.”
God reminded me that I had to stand firm in Him and in His mighty power. I ended up getting into worship and called unto Him. At that moment I felt His power and love rest upon me and all the pain that I was holding on to left. His love for me became more real than everything else that was going on around me.
It can be easy for us to turn to people or the things of this world to fight off our emotions, but such things will only leave us wounded. Healing is found in the power and love of Jesus. We are called to be strong in his mighty power.
You may have many reasons to justify your emotions, but trust that God is able to:
- restore what was broken
- open blind eyes
- set you free
- bring breakthrough
- pave ways we could never imagine.
God is able to do the miraculous. When you feel weak, press into God. Call unto Him and worship Him. He draws near to those who worship Him and brings us joy and healing. He refreshes our souls and fills us with hope once again.
Psalm 43:5 says, “Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”
Choose to believe in what you know, and not what you see or feel. This is the season to stand firm in God and not waver in your faith. Allow His truth and presence to bring rest to your soul. So remember, you can fight off your emotions through God’s mighty power.
