(Psalm 43: 5)
Just because you're not warring against sin, doesn't mean you're not warring within.
On your Christian journey you will notice another conflict besides the one you have against sin, and it's the conflict with your emotions.
In the book of Ecclesiastes, you would think Solomon was deeply depressed while writing.
Even in the book of Jeremiah, we see his battle with his emotions. In Jeremiah 20:11-13, he goes from giving God praise to utter dispair in verses 14-18. And I'm sure there are many, many others, if not everyone in the Bible who had battles with their emotions.
But the battle shouldn't end with our emotions getting the victory. Our hope in God should pull us out of dispair and into a willingness to continue our walk of faith.
Hope doesn't make a difficult time easier to handle, it just let us know that we don't have to be the ones handling it, because with God by our side the battle is His, not ours.
Even while waiting, we will have to put up with our emotions telling us one thing but faith telling us another. You know that God is going to move but on His time, but impatience starts talking telling you how much longer? why am I waiting anyway when you're God? I'm tried of all this waiting!, and before you know it aggravation has set in, depress has set in, anger has set in and even bitterness towards the plan of God.
Do you notice your feeling overwhelming your faith? Do you find yourself complaining to God for moving on His time? Do you find yourself snapping on others because your emotions are getting the best of you? If so, take a minute or two or three or ten to reason within yourself. Ask yourself why are you upset? You Know God is working things out so why are you upset?
God loves you!
Give your life to Christ
Say Lord I confess my sins, and I make You my Lord and Savior.
