If I Feel Something . . .
“I was always taught that God loves me, but I didn’t feel loved.”
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Feelings aren’t always very reliable. It doesn’t take much to put our feelings on an upswing—a sunny day, a nice compliment. But when the clouds roll in or we put on a couple of pounds, we easily fall into emotional lows.
“I know God created me and that Jesus died for me, but I’ve just never felt very valuable.”
Nancy: Regardless of what our emotions tell us, we need to learn to counsel our hearts according to the truth. Paul gives advice on how to do that in the last chapter of Philippians. “Rejoice in the Lord always . . . do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God . . . Whatever is true . . . think about such things” (4:4, 6, 8).
Let’s dwell on these words today, no matter what our emotions say.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
