Positive Emotions 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.
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.
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, only to discover it is not true!
Jesus Christ had emotions since he was fully man and fully God. The shortest scripture in the Bible refers to deep sadness and pain that Jesus experienced 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?
