Devo of the week: Proverbs 16:32

“Better to be patient than powerful; better to have self-control than to conquer a city.” God calls us to exercise self-control over our feelings. As Christians we are not controlled by our feelings, but by the Spirit who teaches us all truth.  How do we discern the difference between our feelings and the movements of the Holy Spirit?  Can our feelings of peace or unrest be the barometer of our decisions and actions?  – Give us wisdom, courage, and an honest, open heart to discern your ways Lord, that we may think, act, and feel as followers of Jesus.
