Over and over I remind people that we must depend on God’s Word rather than our feelings. That is a fact—one that I have to remind myself of repeatedly.
Years ago one of the deacons in the church I pastored insisted that he had seen an angel. I heard him tell the story on several occasions and each time it was very convinicing. Now, I can’t say I’ve seen an angel (I may have seen some devils though–lol), but many people insist they have. That’s not a point I’m going to debate. I don’t know. How could I know?
However, I have no difficulty believing that angels exist and are in some way associated with me. I know this is true because the Bible declares it is so, not because I’ve seen them. If I went solely on my feelings I would conclude that angels do not exist, or at least there is no connection between them and me. God’s Word alone gives me the assurance that my feelings are wrong, and that is a great encouragment.
God is at work in our lives even when it does not seem to be so. He is present with me even when it seems that I am all alone. He hears my prayer, even when the heavens seem as brass. He is helping me, even when it seems that everything depends on me. He has the answer, even when there seems to be none. Since all this is true I have good reason not to despair.
Maybe this is one of those days when you “feel” that everything is wrong, but you are wrong! Everything is not wrong. God is good all the time and , contrary to your feelings, He has some good planned for you if you will but trust Him. So, go with the facts, not your feelings! THINK ABOUT IT!
