Everyone has emotions, and everyone at some point in time will experience hurt. We live in a world filled with hurting people, and hurt people tend to say hurtful things to others. Unkind, cruel words from others can hurt us inside; hurt feelings rob us of God’s blessings. The potential for getting our feelings hurt is real, and the enemy wants to bring us to a place where we do not want to deal with this painful emotion. However, God’s will is for us to be delivered and healed from negative emotions. As born-again Christians, we know hurt must be dealt with immediately. The Word teaches us how to handle it when it happens. Using the believers’ authority we have over our feelings allows us to let go of the emotional pain and move on with our lives.
