Good morning people who put your hope in the Lord God Almighty
Recently I felt God say: “Stop trying to escape your feelings. Rather, feed your faith.”
Psalms 42:11 and 43:5 NIV “Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Saviour and my God.”
‘Put your hope in God’ = Feed your faith!
Too often, negative feelings keep people from pressing into God. Somehow we have brought into the lie that says we need to be good and feel good to come to God. Somehow we have believed that God only accepts perfect people.
In these scriptures, the sons of Korah acknowledged their feelings, but they did not allow their feelings to rule. In fact, they preached to themselves and encouraged themselves to put their hope in God and praise Him, despite their feelings!
Sometimes we want to eradicate what God wants us to overcome.
Sometimes the feeding of our faith will be the very fuel that shifts our feelings.
