Feelings?…..Overrated!

Have you ever felt that you did not fully understand something in your life? Have you ever prayed and still felt as if you had no answer? Have you ever believed and trusted in the Word of God and felt that nothing was changing? Have you ever felt that you were under a microscope? Have you ever felt that someone was judging you incorrectly or harshly? If you have answered YES to any of these and perhaps other things that we “feel” in this life, then you are in good company, because everyone at some point “feels” stuff. The problem is not with the stuff, the issue has been and always will be our “feelings” which are directly tied to our emotions. Feelings will trick you on many levels. 2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us that we “walk by faith and not by sight” right? Well, sight is one of our sensors or “feelers” in life. Paul is making a point that we walk by faith and not by our feelers. Could you imagine where all of mankind would be if our Savior had been directed by “feelers”? At the first slap, stripe upon His back, nail in His hands and feet, He would have reacted differently had feeling been put into it. Yet, the scriptures tell us that “for the joy set before Him He endured the cross, despising the shame” Hebrews 12:2. Many believers today would be best served in all aspects of life by switching the “feelers” off and keeping our faith alive. Blessings to you all!!
