It's easy to make decisions based off of what we feel and think. When we are moved emotional by something it is easy to be motivated one way or the other. Also if we are emotional about something it is easy to be be persuaded that we are making the right decision or being lead down the right path. We have to learn to trust something much more stable than any emotion. God's word.
Hebrews 4:12 God’s Word is sharper than any two-edged sword, dividing soul and spirit and judging the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
God's Word should be what leads us, guides us, and ultimately the final say so. His Word keeps our thoughts and emotions in check.
If you are an emotionaly lead person, you can over come that through Jesus! Don't let your emotions own you, you own them. Start today! Take a "personal inventory" and see if you are letting emotional thinking lead you instead of the God's Word. If you are, identify what is triggering these emotional thoughts. Once you realize the root of what's going on you can ak God to help you overcome specific areas. Then start practicing trusting God and keeping your thoughts focused on Him.
In Colossians 3 God tells us to keep our thoughts focused on Him and not of wordly things. Make an effort, starting today, to keep your thoughts and emotions focused on God. And most of all to be lead only by Him and His Words.
