Historically, the church has devoted plenty of attention to spiritual things, but very little attention to emotions. Realistically, we must admit that we all have feelings; therefore, it makes sense to talk about them and learn how to deal with them. It is okay to have emotions, as long as they do not dominate us. God wants us to achieve emotional stability. This means asserting authority over our feelings and learning to fall “out of love” with our emotions. Real power and success come from the ability to control our emotions, which is where the devil focuses his attacks. When we are aware of the enemy’s tactics, we can be on guard against his efforts in this area.
