Can we really control our emotions? Here is Mary's response to lesson 1 of our free Bible Study on how to control emotions.
1. Which emotions do you need God's help controlling the most?
[2. Why do you think God says that "he who rules his own spirit (is greater) than he who takes a city" (Proverbs 16:32 AMP)?]
It's tougher to keep yourself under control because it's something you have to make a decision to do.
3. Have you ever been shocked by the emotions that Jesus displayed in the garden of Gethsemane? Why do you think God chose to include this scene in the Bible?
I find it very moving. The prayer in John chap. 17 helps me remember He loves us. Maybe He wanted us to remember we are redeemed and saved in every way. There isn't anything that we can't face with Him on our side.
4. Why do you think Satan tries to manipulate our emotions? What are ways that you can stand against him when he tries those tricks on you?
Our emotions can be tricked. We're human beings. I'm very thankful I'm born again. God's spirit tips the scales in my favor. It's God's grace and mercy. Sometimes I close my eyes, take a deep breath and think about a bible verse. If you resist the devil, he will flee.
