I Don't Feel Like It syndrome.
It's a hard one to get over, especially when you are constantly allowing feelings to be your spiritual guide. Certainly there are "emotions" that come with being a Christian (joy of our salvation, love for our Savior, sorrow over our sin) but let's not forget that everyday we are battling our flesh. And everyday we have to fight to believe God's Truths and not let our "feelings" be our deciding factor.
I don't always "feel" like being nice. And I certainly do not always "feel" like praying, or reading my bible, or fellowshipping with my brothers and sisters, or being submissive to my husband. But that doesn't matter, does it? I cannot solely base everything on each emotion I feel.
I believe godly emotions are a gift. We read scripture. We ask God to reveal to us His Truth. When we face temptations, the Holy Spirit reminds us of what God's Truth is. If I don't "feel" like obeying His Word in that moment, does that give me license to sin? If I don't "feel" like fighting off my temptation, should I just sin?
Of course not. With time, however, I do believe that as we grow with Christ, His "emotions" will manifest themselves in our hearts. We will start to "feel" like going to church and "feel" like fighting off sin. We will love scripture and love prayer. And even though we will still fight off those sinful emotions to disobey, His Spirit will always be victorious! I do not mean that we will not sin, but that even if we do, His Spirit will convict us and cause us to repent. And that is a victory!
