God is in control of my life – Prayer for April 27. Christians should know how to control themselves and their emotions because they can sometimes mislead us. So let’s ask God to give us the help we need to manage our feelings and emotions.
Bible Verse for Today
“That each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable.” (1 Thessalonians 4:4)
God is in control of my life, but still, I have the freedom to control my body and feelings. Christians need to know how to control our bodies; the flesh can deceive, but we must be able to tame it and make it bow to our wishes. David couldn’t control his feelings when he saw Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah from the roof bathing; he inquired of her instead and slept with her.

For this reason, he caused the death of Uriah at war. He had to bear the consequence of his deeds (2 Samuel 11 and 12). We might be tempted to do things against our wishes and the wish of God, but if we have the power to control our feelings, we can avoid making mistakes that will cause danger to our lives.
The result of not learning to control our feelings is sin. We will fall into sin because we will do things that are not pleasant to satisfy our senses. If we can’t control ourselves, we will surely be a slave to what controls us. Food, lusts, money, anger, and our words are things that we must learn to control ourselves because if we do not, we will face the consequences of not having self-control.
If you are still finding it hard to deal with your feelings by controlling them, it’s time to use the word of God to change your mind, thoughts today, and heart to establish a life of righteousness.
