Our feelings were never meant to lead us — they were meant to follow our mind. So many are led by their feelings when it comes to life decisions. But our feelings, or how we feel about a person or situation, should not be the final word.
We were created higher and better than all other creation. We were created in the image of God. We were created eternal beings — we will live forever in heaven or in hell. We were also given the ability to choose, to make choices. We are to live by the choices we make; and, hopefully, we will choose God’s way, and make choices that are in line with His word.
Jesus made it clear by His garden experience, when He threw Himself down to the ground, asking God the Father if the cup of sacrifice could pass from Him. But then He ended by saying, “Not My will, but Yours.” It won’t always be easy to do the will of God: to go against the way we feel at times — the way we feel vs. do the will of God when it is hard to do. But it is about His will, not ours. It is about His word: not the way we feel at the time. Our culture has ingrained in our society, If it feels good, do it. But as Christians we must weigh every decision against the word of God, and obey what He says. Our feelings were never meant to lead our lives: they were meant to be led by our mind, our choices.
I pray you choose God’s way over everything else and truly live and have good health. Proverbs 4:23 NLT — Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
Just a thought,
