Feelings are unreliable!

For we live by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7 NIV

Live by faith and not by emotion!!! It is sad but most people live by feelings. We all do one way or another. Some trust feelings over faith. They base decisions, what to think, and even what they see all on emotion or feeling. Many mistakes are made this way. We make assumptions when use emotion and feelings instead of using faith.

Have you ever said “I dont feel like” ? We all have. Heck I say that every morning getting our of bed for work, or come evening when I should pray, or when it’s time to spend time with lives ones, or doing the daily chores… “I dont feel like” It is our kryptonite. Living by feeling and emotions will keep you from living Gods will.

I have to remind myself that in order for me to be obedient to God I cannot live based on my emotions or what I see with my natural eyes but instead, I have to first listen to what he has to say to me and trust and have faith in him. In his word. Today, dont let feelings or emotions dictate who you are, how you think, or cloud over your faith and the will of God. God has amazing things planned for you. Just open yourself up and listen – he is talking. Amem.
