Faith and feelings can never get along. They’ll always be at war with each other because more often than not, they see differently. Our feelings often tell us things that our faith doesn’t agree with. However, we have to consciously tell ourselves to keep walking by faith and not by sight (feelings, emotions, circumstances) – 2 Corinthians 5:7.
Too often, when we find ourselves in a bind, even though we know that scripture by heart, we tend to forget it when we need it most. We panic, we let our imaginations run wild with all the possible outcomes, we even let fear have its way. It’s time to use faith to trump our feelings, our emotions, our circumstances. Don’t let your feelings get carried away no matter how much pressure you’re under. You may not be able to see your desire physically yet but but don’t let that deter you faith. One of my favourite scriptures, 2 Corinthians 4:18 clearly tells us where to put our focus. We’re told to look not at the troubles we can see but at the things which are unseen. The things we can see are temporary but the unseen is forever.
The things you can see now are temporary but the things your faith can see (faith sees) are forever. Every moment of everyday, be conscious about using your faith to trump your feelings. Tell yourself “Yes, some things may not be as they ought to be but that doesn’t matter, I choose my faith over what I see”. Replace your natural eyes with the eyes of faith! The level of your faith determines your confidence so never stop growing in faith (study, and meditate on God’s Word daily; pray, etc). Faith can get you anything at anytime. Keep using it to overcome your feelings, and you’ll have your victory, your testimony, your breakthrough, in no time! – K #faith #keepwalkinginthegreatlight
