Faith over feelings. | To say that I wholeheartedly believe this would be an understatement. Feelings are deceiving. I can confidently say that this is something that the Lord has been teaching me throughout 2019. Feelings creep in sometimes; other times, they come in like a bang. Regardless of how they make an arrival, you can be sure that they will. Don’t get me wrong, emotions are a gift from God that allow us to experience life’s most precious moments to fullest. But, things become concerning when we let our emotions dictate our actions. How do we choose to react when we’re angry? Ecstatic? Depressed? Fearful? Unconfident? I pray that my answer will always be to choose faith over feelings; to always point myself back to the Word, who has always been the ultimate example of emotional intelligence & restraint; to combat negative self-talk with biblical truth. Y’all, the world will inundate you with messages about who and what you are. What are we feeding our minds? Who are we choosing to believe?
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” II Corinthians 10:3-6
