A fact is a thing that is known or proved to be true, the truth about events as opposed to interpretation. Feelings give us information, and they can move us to action, but no matter how powerful they are, they’re not facts.
You can feel like you’re not worth anything. You can even feel like you’re a human failure, and as powerful as those feelings are, it doesn’t make them true. You might say, “I feel afraid.” Even though that is a powerful feeling, you are not fear. In our society we are being indoctrinated into living by how we feel. A boy might say, “I feel like a girl” or vice versa. But just because they feel that way, it is not a fact.
The fact is, we can prove whether you are a male or female. We have been lied to, to believe that our feelings are facts. Some might say, “I don’t feel like God forgave me.” The fact of the matter is, the Bible teaches us that if we truly repent, God will forgive us. What is truer, my feelings or the fact of the truth?
We must begin the journey not to live or make decisions based on a feeling, but on the truth of God's word. It’s not only fact, but it is truth.
Just a thought,
