SPIRITUAL JOY NOT EMOTIONAL HAPPINESS

We all have a choice to either live by our emotions or our spirit. The results and experiences we have can be traced back to which realm we draw from the most. There are many times when the lines are blurred between the two that we can’t tell the difference. But we must discipline ourselves to tell the difference and make decisions from the correct inspiration as per the situation we are dealing with. Emotions are temporal while your spirit has a permanent disposition. Your emotions can change twenty times in a single day but your spirit will remain the same.

Living a peaceful, joyful and victorious life is a matter of living by your spirit rather than your emotions. Instead of making decisions due to the wavering and changing expressions of your emotions, you choose to ignore those emotions and dig into your inner self and discover the guidance of your spirit. The Lord will speak to your spirit while your emotions are influenced by your experiences and the world around you. Your spirit will dive into the things of God and guide you to victory while your emotions will get you stranded in “no-man’s land” waiting for some external happening to decide your fate. Daily decide to live by your spirit and not your emotions.

SCRIPTURE READING: 1 Peter 5:6-7
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

DEVOTION PRAYER: Father I choose to live by my spirit and not my emotions. I cast my cares unto you; I am daily rested in you. Victory, constant peace and joy flow out of my spirit daily. I praise you Jesus for you make my life so beautiful. Hallelujah!
