Faith Over Feelings



While feelings are important, they are unreliable indicators of the trustworthiness of God’s promise.  

Our feelings change easily, but God’s Word, and His character, remain constant. This illustration shows the relationship between fact (God and His Word) and our feelings.

Fact: The chair is strong enough to support you.
Faith: You believe this chair will support you, so you sit in it.
Feeling: You may or may not feel comfortable in this chair, but it continues to support you.

The promise of God’s Word, the Bible — not our feelings — is our authority, The Christian lives by faith (trust) in the trustworthiness of God Himself and His Word.

Suggestions for Christian Growth

Go to God in prayer daily (John 15:7)
Read God’s Word daily (Acts 17:22); begin with the Gospel of John
Obey God moment by moment (John 14:21).
Witness for Christ by your life and your words (Matthew 4:19; John 15:8).
Trust God for every detail of your life (1 Peter 5:7).
Holy Spirit — allow Him to control and empower your daily life and witness (Galatians 5:16, 1 Acts 1:8; Ephesians 5:18).

Grab your copy of Daily Wisdom from God, where you’ll find devotions for every day of the year, plus, real stories from people who faced life’s challenges and saw God answer their prayers. He doesn’t answer the way we expect … but He always answers!
