Feelings Show Our Beliefs

 

136af79226b137cce0f5ef3670282e95When we examine our feelings, or we cry out in emotion overflowing from feelings of hurt, anguish, disappointment, loss, etc., we are expressing what we believe to be true.  However, all we feel and believe is not necessarily true.  I may feel defeated in my walk with Yeshua, or deserted and ignored because I have failed Him and myself; I believe He has pulled away from me, because I am no longer worthy to be in His presence.  These feelings are real, my failings are real, and I truly believe my weakness has separated me from Yeshua, but those who…know well the scriptures, know otherwise.

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5).

“Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen?  It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns?  No one.  Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?  As it is written: ‘For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:33-39).

Remember when Peter denied Yeshua three times after saying he would die with him and after Yeshua told him in advance that he would deny him.  Afterward Peter wept bitterly, but after the resurrection Yeshua found Peter fishing and reconfirmed Peter’s love and commission. (John 21:15-17).  It is God who chose us, found us, justified us, and has commissioned us, He will not leave us, nor will He let us wander off alone in our failure and weakness.  This is the undeniable, infallible and unchangeable truth.  He has saved, justified, and sanctified us and this is not of ourselves lest anyone should boast. (Eph. 28-10).
