    'Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and don't do the things which I say? Everyone who comes to me, and hears my words and does them, I will show you who he is like. He is like a man building a house, who dug and went deep and laid a foundation on the rock. When a flood arose, the stream broke against...

    For to the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner he gives travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him who pleases God. This also is vanity and a chasing after wind. Ecclesiastes 2:26 WEB.In dog racing, they have a lure called a mechanical rabbit ...

Hooked on a Feeling

  • He caused me to pass by them all around: and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and behold, they were very dry. He said to me, 'Son of man, can these bones live?' I answered, 'Lord Yahweh, you know.' Again he said to me, 'Prophesy over these bones, and tell them, 'You dry bones, hear Yahweh's word. The Lord Yahweh says to these bones: 'Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and you will live.' Ezekiel 37:2 WEB

    The Lord took Ezekiel to a valley that was filled with dry bones lying in the sun. It was the remains of a great army, now scattered about the ground and lying in the dust. All life was gone, and all that remained were the bones. It was a bleak picture of hopelessness. God told him to prophesy His words over them. Ezekiel had to feel this was a hopeless situation, but when he obeyed and did what God told him, the dry bones came back to life.

    Facts, faith, and feelings, have to line up in that order. Facts are the word of God, which is living and always relevant. Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word (Rhema) that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). His Word is truth, His word is our anchor, His Word brought the universe into existence.

    Our faith is demonstrated when our mouth and actions line up with the Word of God. Finally, our feelings must fall into their proper place, at the end of the line and the least important of all. We can become hooked on feelings of doubt, unbelief, self pity, and fear. They grow into mountains that we cannot see past. We have to let those go in order to move on with God. Facts (Word of God) first, faith second, feelings last.

    You cannot reverse this list and put your feelings first, then expect to live an overcoming life. If you feel like God does not love you and then begin to act like it, while ignoring what is written in the Word, then you have reversed the list. You cannot measure how much God loves you by your feelings, for they will lie to you. We have to stand on what has been written in His Word.

    Keep your 'feelings' in check and do not speak them if they are negative, for your own words will be used against you by the enemy. You can prophesy your own future. James 3:4 tells us: 'Behold, the ships also, though they are so big and are driven by fierce winds, are yet guided by a very small rudder, wherever the pilot desires. So the tongue is also a little member, and boasts great things. See how a small fire can spread to a large forest!' Keep your speech positive, and instead of venting a feeling, quote a scripture that counters it. That is what Jesus did in the wilderness.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please set a guard over my lips and make me aware of the things that I speak. Help me to keep my feelings in check and to trust You completely. Restore my hope, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
