TODAY IS I FEEL IT
This expression adverts to an emotional plea. "A fool lets it all hang out; a sage quietly mulls it over. (Proverbs 29:11). This scripture clearly states that a fool will express their emotions at all cost. Since we are humans, we will always feel something. However this doesn't mean that we FEEL IT, and apply that emotion to all sorts of evils.We must be mindful that our feelings are emotional based. That is why they must be detected onset, and then redirected to the proper cubicle of what is occurring. If not I FEEL IT can lead one an emotional roller coaster for years, to later end up naught.
For many years I FEEL IT was my gauge for God, people, places, and things. If I FELT IT, I acted upon it. As I allowed the Holy Spirit to radar detect my emotions, I found out that my emotions are not a dependable gauge of measurement. Surely I FEEL IT, can attract all sorts of evil spirits. "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit. Put the spirits to the test to see if they belong to God. Many false prophets have gone out into the world." (1 John 4:1)
I remember this one particular time, I became sadden that someone I personally knew was spewing venom (lies) about me. I was crying (emotions) whilst explaining to God what a good person I was, and woe-woe- is me. Soon after, very soon after the enemy (Satan) swooped into my thoughts, and suggested how hopeless I was over the venom, how bad it was for my image, how sad I should be, and how resentful I should become. It wasn't soon after that my thoughts started to align with those thoughts, and my flesh started yelling "attack!"
As I pondered (consciously) the many thoughts of revenge on that person I became even more sadden, and angered. Undeniably I could feel two wars internally going against each other. "We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ," ( 2 Corinthians 10:5).
Gracefully God showed me that my emotions were deriving from my own issues of trusting everyone I meet. I now know that if I would've tried to revenge myself I would've granted my ego (flesh) to have control over my emotions. I heard someone say " 20% is what happens to us, and 80% is what we do afterwards." I would like to put a spin on that, and say. Ignorantly or foolishly we try and control the 80% of what has happened to us by aligning our emotions with evil thoughts to hurt other people, when in fact all this really does is produce 80% of harm to ourselves after the 20%.
Indeed it taken me many years to receive Gods protection for the wounds that other folk have created in my life. This in itself has allowed me to express my emotions with a clear understanding that my emotions aren't bigger than my God.
As God would have it to be, he has allowed me to study the spirit of revenge all while equipping me with the wisdom to battle my own thoughts. It was important that I knew early on that "I" was willing aligning my thoughts with the enemy (Satan) when I FEEL IT. What I found out was that revenge is always entailed with victim, hatred, jealousy, selfishness and host of other evils.
Sadly, the folk whom loosely apply revenge are heavy laden with sin. “They are sinful nation. They are loaded down with guilt. They are people who do nothing but evil. They are children who are always sinning. They have deserted the Lord. They have turned against the Holy One of Israel. They have turned their backs on him. " (Isaiah 1:4. NIRV).
Not only was God equipping me to battle my own I FEEL IT, he was showing me that any time we partake of evil we become more, and more desensitized to become an easy target for more disguises of the enemy (Satan) to subtly operate in our life. Sadly revengeful folk believe their evil thoughts are theirs and theirs alone.
Be reminded the problem isn't the displaying of emotions, the problem is when we allow that emotion to align with a negative thought of pursing revenge. "Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things." (Philippians 4:8).
