We feel tremendous sadness and intense happiness, many times throughout the course of our life. Those are our feelings that Lord created us with and they come and go based on things that are happening around us. But the fruits of the spirit are a little different.
The fruits of Holy Spirit are: Peace, Love, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Kindness, Patience, Self Control, Goodness and Joy. When God’s spirit lives within us, He equips us with these fruits, simply because He is these fruits. These are His attributes.
So in the midst of terror or crippling anxiety, we can find His peace. In the midst of our anger, He can navigate our hearts to be patient, kind, gentle and loving, despite the situation that’s unfolding around us.
In the midst of temptation, He can help us find self control.
In the midst of running away from Him, He is the only one who can lead us back to our faith in Him and help us sustain our faithfulness.
And in the midst of our tremendous sadness, He can lay a blanket of joy on us that can come out in the form of rejoicing His great name despite our tragedies. A joy that helps you find the good in the bad. A joy that helps you see His hand on your life. He is mighty and He is personal.
Our feelings are in the likeness of God but the fruits of the spirit are God and He can help us find His fruits when we are lost in our feelings.
