Follow God’s wisdom, not your own feelings

For the Lord gives skillful and godly Wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding –Proverbs 2:6

Life is no fun when we let our feelings run the show. Feelings change from day to day, hour to hour, even moment to moment. They often lie to us. In short, we cannot trust our feelings.

But we can choose, as Christ followers, to ignore false emotions and live by truth and wisdom. Let me give you some examples…

Perhaps you have found yourself in a crowd of people and felt as though everyone was talking about you. That doesn’t mean they were. Maybe you feel that nobody understand you, but that doesn’t mean they don’t. You may feel misunderstood, unappreciated or even mistreated, but that doesn’t mean you are. These are only feelings.

We need to be mature, disciplined people, determined to walk in the Spirit. It takes a constant act of the will to choose to do things God’s way rather than our way.

Even though we may occasionally feel bombarded by negative emotions, we cannot allow those feelings to control and spoil life. Instead, we can choose to follow the truth–godly wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
