Series Strong Woman 3 – Do not listen to feelings




Whoever wants to be strong cannot led by feelings, in any way. When we live by emotions, we become weak women, impulsive and sensitive. If you want to be strong, you need to understand one thing: Learn not to listen to feelings:

·      When somebody argues with you;
·      When somebody does something to harm you;
·      When somebody is unfair with you;
·      When somebody tells you that you are not capable;
·      When somebody discredits you and tries to put you down

The person who is always “emotional”, is normally sensitive to anything, she always takes things personal, explodes easily, gets sad very often, and speaks hastily. As we can see letting the heart rule just brings evil things to our lives. The same is related to our spiritual life. Trying to communicate to God through emotions is the reason why the majority of people have been having an unhappy life.

Reading the book “Fast of Daniel” by Bishop Macedo, he teaches that when a person lives by emotions from the heart, she will never listen to the voice of God because God does not speak to the heart of human beings but to their spirit. So many times I prayed “God speak to my heart.” You see that God does not work with feelings but with the intelligence, it means the intelligent faith.

If you really want to be a strong woman do not be led by the heart. Put your head above your heart. Do not listen to your feelings because they are disloyal. Do not give your strength to your emotions.
“…For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.” Matthew 15:19

Mrs Tania , thank you for the post.

I could also like reason as I am reading and I could add to say my opinion I'd say when you try to listen to God by emotions there is a danger of thinking that a particular decision or things Is the will of God, whereas it is not, it is your will and or your desire trying to make it God's "voice" or " answer" should I say. This is danger because you close what God Truly wanted from you.

When we hear the voice of God, rather when God talks to us He will make us think about this thing and or decision, if it a fault, and you take the time to see to it, He will show you the root cause.
By the meditation of His word and also showing interest in what He has to speak.
He makes us think , to open our reasoning and at times allow things to happen to call our attention to seek answers and direction from Him.

I thank you, it all comes together and makes sense

Hello Mrs Tania, thank you for this enlightening message. What has called my attention is the prayer. "God speak to my heart" this a wake up call for me. I never considered myself emotional since I came to church I learn and i see great changes in my life. But this is the kind of prayer I made even today, I had to be ashamed of myself. God's language is Faith and I have learnt it has to be an intelligent Faith. Where is the intelligence here in this prayer. God speaks to us that the heart is deceitful, He can only change our heart but not speak to it because He knows what the heart is like. I wish to say today you have been used by God to correct me in this prayer. I was not connecting to my God because that was not His language. Just like the message of the angel tonight, I identify this as a prayer from a deceiving spirit working through emotions.

Thank you Mrs Tania

Our hearts are true misleaders. The examples you gave show the situation that we come across and if we deal with them emotionally, the results are: grudges, anger, hatred, low self esteem and all the other negative effects we can think of. Reasoning on the other hand lets us deal with the situation wisely and considering our salvation as the priority.

Thank you Mrs Tania I could relate to the message because I learned that being emotional does not help at all but makes things even worse
You become bitter and think that God has forsaken you which is not true

I learned that my mind has to speak louder than my heart. I cannot allow my heart to be the one that controls my way of behaving,because this is acting like a child.

Such behavior will take me nowhere.

Hi Sra. Taina
It is true, the heart is very wicked and if we go by it we fall and just problems will come. I know that women are more emotional than men.
But I know its possible to control those dumb feelings!
To me and I know its a daily battle for all of us spirit against flesh, reason agaisnt feelings. I recognize I was living in a emotional faith. I fall by what I feel, or if problems comes in what I see or hear. But that's enough! I bren putting this into pratice to not go by emotional faith instead a intelligent faith to use my reason more! Thank you Sra. Taina for teaching me to become a strong woman :)
