Emotion or Real Praises?<\/strong><\/span><\/u><\/h2>\n

The last time you attempted to praise God, did you do it out of emotion, or you did it out of reasoning? You don\u2019t have to respond loudly, but you were likely got caught up with emotion and based your praises on it. <\/span><\/p>\n

We all have the tendency to allow our emotions to dictate how well and how far we can go with our worship to God. Is that what God really wants? Does he really appreciate the fact that we let our feelings run the show (of praising his name)?  <\/span><\/p>\n

Emotion: Good or bad?<\/u><\/span><\/h2>\n

Emotion has its place. It can be a good thing if we use it properly. In fact, emotion is a normal human characteristic. God put it there for our benefits. Despise its good uses; emotion can do more harm than good. So, children of God must take note of this and be overly sensitive about its use. <\/span><\/p>\n

Don\u2019t Let Feelings Ruin Your Praises<\/strong><\/span> <\/span><\/p>\n

Emotion torso can influence our worship. The rule of thumb is that someone who excessively focuses on his feelings about a thing has the likelihood of becoming less subjugated of normal reasoning. He has the chance to either suppress or ignore common sense intuition. <\/span><\/p>\n

In other words, a person with an uncontrollable emotional drive is prone to making a mistake. Under the same rule, consider that your worship effort to God may not be at its top-notch when emotion is the main driving factor. <\/span><\/p>\n

Any praise exercise expected to score a higher grade with God must come from inductive reasoning. It must be thought-out well and be presented to God well.  <\/span><\/p>\n

Provide Actionable Praise To God <\/u><\/span><\/u><\/h2>\n

Don\u2019t just \u201cfeel like praising God.\u201d Get a reason for your action; make it a good one!

If you allow your emotion to call the shot, you won\u2019t give your best praises to God!<\/p> <\/i>Click to tweet <\/span> <\/span> <\/a> <\/div><\/em> <\/span><\/p>\n

Imagine: If you\u2019re trapped in a feel-it-make-it syndrome, what happens when you don\u2019t feel like praising God? <\/span><\/p>\n

As a child of God, you\u2019re equipped to praise God, and you\u2019re required to praise God at all times. Period! <\/span><\/p>\n

Praising God is not about feelings! <\/strong><\/em>Praising God is A-must!! Not A-choice!!!<\/strong><\/em><\/span><\/em><\/span><\/strong><\/span> \"feeling\"<\/p><\/blockquote>\n

Emotion Blindfolds Thorough Worship<\/u><\/span><\/h2>\n

Emotion can make you think less of God\u2019s goodness in your life and (at the same time) make you unnecessarily focus on your present challenge. In a simple language,

You\u2019re likely going to become an ungrateful person if emotion turns on\/off your worship clock.\u00a0<\/p> <\/i>Click to tweet <\/span> <\/span> <\/a> <\/div> <\/span><\/p>\n

Don\u2019t praise God out of emotion; praise him out of reasoning. Praise God at all times! <\/span> Your feeling of the moment can be deceptive; it may not adequately represent everything that God has in stock for you. <\/span><\/p>\n

The habit of overly paying attention to how you presently feel about a thing can put you in a blind-spot and block your view of any new blessing en-route.<\/span><\/p>\n
