Don't Allow Your Feelings to Defeat Your Faith

Jesus is often referred to as the Solid Rock. An important part of His nature is His emotional maturity, which includes His unchanging stability. Hebrews 13:8 tells us that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Jesus did not allow himself to be moved or led around by His emotions. He was led by the Spirit not by feelings, even though He was subject to all the same feelings that you and I experience in our daily lives. You may get aggravated at times because someone may not get as excited as you about something. It just may be part of their personality. According to 1 Peter 5:8-9 we need to be rooted and grounded in Christ in order to defeat the devil and withstand his physical and emotional onsets. When people or events come agains us to detroy us, we are to stand firm, confident that everything is going to work out for the best. This is where we get in to trouble. We find it easier change ourselves, when God is the one that will change the circumstances for us. Amen! Not every day is a holiday. Not every meal is a banquet. Not every event is an extravaganza. We need to learn to enjoy life and stop believing our feelings and believe God instead.  Feelings are supposed to compliment your life. Don't allow your feelings to defeat your faith and determine your destiny.  Instead, discover what the Word of God says about your feelings and take control.
