Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional May 6th – Don’t Be Rigid!

(Relate To God With Your Emotions)

TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 2:4 RSV
“He who sits in the heavens laughs…”

LET’S TALK
At various times, the Lord Jesus expressed His emotions. At Lazarus’ grave, He wept. At another time, He laughed and danced in the Spirit (Luke 10:21).

Once, He got so angry that He whipped the money-changers and drove them out of the temple (Matthew 21:10-14).

The Lord Jesus said to Philip, “…Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking to see him?” (John 14:9 TLB). In other words, He’s the perfect reflection of the Father. This shows us the kind of person God is – He has emotions.

This consciousness should let you know that you should relate with God as one who feels, not as a computer.

God called David a man after His own heart (Acts 13:22), because David was so passionate about Him. When the ark of the covenant was being returned into Israel, he danced and praised so much before the Lord that his wife became offended at him (2 Samuel 6:20-22).
Yet, he didn’t care; all he cared about was pleasing God and expressing his appreciation.

When you worship and pray, do it with your emotions; talk to God as you would to someone who is actually listening to you. Some people are just too rigid with God! They sing “I love you Lord” without showing any emotion whatsoever.

There’s nothing wrong with showing your emotions in your communication with God. Worship God with your heart and emotions. Put yourself into your praise. You’ll soon discover the glorious blessing that comes from such intimacy with God.

Psalm 42:1

Pray:
Precious Father, you’re everything to me. I love you with all of my heart, and I love being in your presence. As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul longs after you. Your praise will continually be in my mouth, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
