Your emotions matter to God, as the vital medium of interaction.
Emotions are a wonderful gift to every man created in God’s image.
God has given us the beautiful gift of emotions to help us live our lives to the fullest.
I would like us today to look at a biblical examples and state 5 reasons why our emotions matter to God.
#1. Emotional healing and growth
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all;
he protects all his bones,
not one of them will be broken.”
In these short bible verses, we can observe how your emotions matter to God.
Knowing that God is close to those who are hurting is so consoling in the biblical context.
It would be best if you held fast to this pledge.
It’s reassuring to know that God comforts us as we seek Him and that emotional healing will come even though we may not be able to halt difficult moments in life.
The Lord is close by. He is with you and has a strong sense of emotions for you. God must have much more sympathy for us in our feelings and suffering if he commands us to cry with those who cry.
And he commands us to cry out for assistance, saying that he hears the cries of those whom he has justified through the shed blood of Christ because your emotions matter to God.
And ALL of our problems will be solved by our very own Savior. This shows your emotions matter to God
#2. Emotions move and comfort people
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
We can turn to “the Father of mercies and God of all comfort” when we are in trouble and emotionally drained.
And he will comfort you in “all of our affliction,” therefore, there is no affliction he won’t do so.
So much your emotions matter to God so that we can give others who are suffering God’s consolation.
The discouragement of the people in observing the present prevented them from accepting both the evidence and the promises of God.
We, too, by circumstances in life, come to feel emotionally abused, discouraged, and disheartened. Since your emotions matter to God, let him know each and every emotion within you
To mend our relationship with God, we must submit our emotions to God entirely. For God cares about our emotions
#3. Emotions reflect His image
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning?”
We can feel like God has forsaken us and that he is blind to our suffering and deaf to our cries. But your emotions matter to God.
What we will believe—our sentiments and emotions or God’s Word—is one of the biggest issues believers encounter on a regular basis.
Our emotions are actual, and your emotions matter to God. We feel them deeply. They are powerful. But our feelings are a lousy indicator of the truth. Despite being genuine feelings, they are not necessarily accurate. Whether or not we agree with it, God’s word is always accurate.
Therefore, we must recall God’s Word when we FEEL like he is far away. Since your emotions matter to God, We must keep his commitments in mind.
#4. Emotions helps you read and lead people
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
We can manage our emotions by relying on what God has to tell us.
God has given us emotions as a lovely gift; thus, they matter to him.
He is the one who gave us the ability to feel.
Our God implanted emotions in man to serve a valuable relationship role. One may ask, does God care about our emotions? Yes. Your emotions matters to God
Emotions enable us to respond in the same way our minds allow us to think and choose.
God reveals himself in our emotions in many straightforward ways and speaks to us with promises for our emotional healing.
However, our circumstances often prevent us from appreciating the apparent manifestations of God’s love, thus improving our Christian life.
Dear reader, God knows your heart more than yourself. Your emotions matter to God that one may think.
He knows what’s going on in your mind and in your unconscious, even though you don’t know it, your emotions matters to God.
To enjoy an emotional healing and healthy relationship with God, it is necessary to recognize our emotions and give them their right place. This is also illustrated in the Why Emotions Matter book by Collins, J., Collins, T., Binder, M., & T. K.
Many of us live life denying what we feel, and in doing so, we disconnect from an essential part of our faith experience. God is interested in how we feel; we can come to him to express those things. By so doing, we will be witnesses that our emotions matter to God.
#5. Fostering positive emotions helps maintain inspiration
Open your heart to God as a close friend; your emotions matter to him. Something deep in your life and in your relationship with him changes. Your emotional healing begins.
Your experience grows and improves when you let God care about your emotions.
In doing so, the darkness of the mind dissipates, and then we can clearly see the obvious.
We can see that God is there and that his hand is outstretched to help us in our emotional turmoils. We can also learn about more about emotions by clicking the link below.
It should be clarified that recognizing our emotions does not imply allowing ourselves to live controlled by them rather than reason.
Your emotions matter to God, but require a balance.
Unprocessed emotions such as sadness, discouragement, and others can prevent us from hearing God’s voice.
I wish to you that you may come to God as you are, knowing that your emotions matter to him. Let God know your emotions, as they matter to him more than you think.
Without a cover of sophisticated words or talking about baseless things, let God know how you feel, as he cares about your emotions.
What is your response to the full knowledge that your emotions matter to God?
Tell God about what’s really going on, tell him what you really want, tell him what you really experience, tell him if you feel let down by him, if you’re discouraged or sad, tell him why.
