More Than A Feeling
I don’t know about you, but my feelings change like the weather. One minute I’m high and the next I’m low. One minute I have great peace the next moment I feel that uncomfortable sensation called anxiety. Some want you to think that if you have such feelings you aren’t really a Christian. But, my bible reveals that this means you’re human. This is why I must be stabilized by my faith in Jesus Christ alone and not my fragile feelings.
It’s been said “you’ve got to stand for something or you fall for anything.” The devil is hoping that you don’t stand on the solid truth found in God’s word. Why? Because if you don’t stand firmly on God’s truth you will fall prey to anything the devil throws your way.
You see, momentary feelings will lead you constantly astray. They can wreck relationships, ruin your integrity, and cause you to question everything that comes your way. However, trusting in what God’s words says instead of just how you feel is critical to a stabilized life. Too often, what people refer to as God is simply their gut. And, last time I checked you shouldn’t trust your gut more than your God.
So, as you go through this roller coaster called life. Make sure that you maintain a firm faith in God and His word. If not your ever changing feelings will lead you away from a never changing God. Your faith must be more than feelings. Your faith must be what you rely on when your feelings are misleading you by the moment.
“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13
“…You must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” James 1:6
