Go Beyond Your Emotions

Romans 12:11 (ESV)

11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.

*God doesn't want us to grow lazy in the things that make us happy, and forget to tap into the spirit for guidance and correction. For the feeling of happiness only lasts for a moment, and can be easily disappear or become jaded. However, seeking God and staying in tuned with Him spiritually provides longevity, and proper guidance that is not based on emotions. Being slothful is to be lazy...In this case, being lazy enough to utilize, get close to, or or pay attention to things that satisfy your emotions. This is only scratching the surface, or could even serve as a distraction from the bigger picture that God is trying to show you. Today, let's all work on growing and uncovering more depth spiritually, and go beyond the here and now or what satisfies emotionally...Find that drive in God leading you to the longevity of peace, and not the short-term zeal provided by a feeling.
