Numbers 8:10 - Numbers 21:7
"And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the Lord, and do them ; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:" Numbers 15:39
Following our heart or our emotions is not going to lead us in the right direction. According to this verse, it does not seem to be the wise choice to follow your heart.
God also does not want us to follow our eyes because things are not always what the appear.
God's word is the same yesterday, today and forever. That is what we should follow after.
I have learned that even though things are disruptive around me, I know to keep my emotions in line to what the Bible says. Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing.
