Do You Act on Faith or Feelings?

FGGAM Shares a Biblical Worldview Everyday:

“The Biblical worldview says there is a God—One who is personal, powerful and caring—who created the world and everything in it. It states unequivocally that man is created in God’s image, living in essence as God’s co-regent over creation. Mankind—born and unborn, rich and poor, able and disabled—has intrinsic worth. Almighty God is a sovereign God, ruler over nations, states, empires, and governments. He is to be worshiped and obeyed through the precepts and principles revealed in His infallible Word. He not only exists, but He is sovereign over all of history according to His wisdom and purposes, and He is intimately involved in every aspect of life.”

Franklin Graham, “A Biblical Worldview in Today’s Culture”

PRAY OVER THIS

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

PONDER THIS

Faith is confidence that goes beyond emotions. Emotions are the shallowest part of your nature. Faith is the deepest work of God, and God doesn’t do the deepest work in the shallowest part of you. Don’t live your life under the tyranny of emotions. It feels good to feel good and there is nothing wrong with feeling good. But feelings are fickle.

When I go to preach, I always try to look like I’m having a good time and I feel good. But sometimes I don’t. Surprised? Maybe I didn’t get any sleep last night. Maybe I got an upset stomach. Maybe I’ve got a dull headache when I come up here, but it’s time to preach and I’m going to preach. Other times you think it’s going to be a good service, but nothing seems to go right. The preacher’s tongue gets tied up. And the ushers won’t ush. And the choir can’t hit the notes. And you think, “Good night! God is light-years from this place.” Yet Heaven comes down. Our emotions had nothing to do with that.

  • When was a time you felt like everything was going right but didn’t see the spiritual fruit you hoped for? When was a time everything felt wrong, but you saw God move powerfully?
  • What does this teach you about what God can do, no matter how you feel?

PRACTICE THIS

Take time in prayer today to ask God for faith in Him that goes beyond your feelings, whether they are good or bad.
