Positive Emotions Refer to What Makes Us Feel Good!
Where do your emotions come from? Are they generated from society, from your flesh, from money, power, position, or are they from God, the maker of heaven and earth? Take time to figure out whether or not your so called “positive emotions” are really that positive or not. Some people may consider heavy drinking of alcohol or be using drugs can bring upon positive emotions, or having sex outside of marriage between one man and one woman to be full of positive emotions.
Jesus Christ had emotions since he was fully man and fully God. Not to confuse the fruit of the Spirit with emotions, although Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, all bear some “positive emotions” that come forth from them. But on the other hand, the shortest scripture in the Bible refers to deep sadness and pain in John 11:35 Jesus wept.
It would be fair to say that we all gravitate to wanting to have happy emotions, to do so, a person must find peace in their heart. To find this type of peace it would start with a relationship with God. You must practice discernment to determine whether or not emotions are truly positive by seeing the fruit that comes from them?

That is why we need God to help direct us. ~ Bill Greguska
