SUMMER SERIES: WEEK 5- DEALING WITH EMOTIONS

Faith Alive Fellowship Aug 8, 2021


“The most important commandment is this: You must love the Lord your God with ALL YOUR HEART, and all your SOUL, and all your MIND, and all your STRENGTH.” Mark 12:29-30 (NLT)


I. UNDERSTANDING MY EMOTIONS:

A. GOD HAS EMOTIONS


B. MY ABILITY TO FEEL IS A GIFT FROM GOD

“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness...’”

Genesis 1:26 (NIV)


TWO EXTREMES TO AVOID:

EMOTIONALISM: All that matters is how I feel

STOICISM: My feelings aren’t important at all


C. GOD GAVE US PSALMS TO UNDERSTAND OUR

EMOTIONS


II. WHY I MUST LEARN TO MANAGE MY EMOTIONS:


A. BECAUSE MY FEELINGS ARE OFTEN UNRELIABLE

“There is a way that SEEMS right to a man, but in the end, it leads to

death.” Proverbs 14:12 (NIV)


B. BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO BE MANIPULATED

“Like an open city with no defenses is the man with no check on his

feelings.” Proverbs 25:28 (NAB)

“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a

roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 (NIV)
