You will not accomplish much if you will not get your emotions under control. Our emotions are useful. God gave them to us for a reason. However, if your life is ruled by your emotions, you will fail. You must be ready for the truth. Nothing but the truth at all times. Regardless of how you feel at the moment. Without any care for your ego. You must not continue to empower your ego and emotions with lies. Lies will comfort you in the moment, but in the passing of time it will get worse. There will be little or no truth in your soul. As a result, you will lack the spiritual substance you need to do great things.
Proverbs 16:32 (ESV) says, “Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city”. This verse compares giving in to anger (a stand-in for emotions) with might. It makes a case that it is better to rule over your own spirit (self-control) than to have political power. In your quest to steer your world towards where God wants. You must begin to empty your emotions. Your emotions must lose their grip over your soul. You cannot wield the might of the Lord if your soul is dominated by your own natural emotions.
Your work, mission and relationships could all use a little more truth. When you get emotional with people, candour is the first virtue you toss outside the window. Emotions and the truth cannot coexist. Emotions and sentiment creates a false reality that is sustained by lies. This is dangerous. It accomplishes nothing more than a descent to lawlessness and hell. This is because lies lead to disorder. Truth moves you towards orderliness and reality. Do some soul searching and consider whether your life is driven by emotion. Major emotions to watch out for include: happiness, sadness, fear, and anger. Your life should be driven by the truth, not these emotions.
