The Christian and His/Her Feelings

DevotionsThe Christian and His/Her Feelings

1 John 5:10-15

10 Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

Concluding Affirmations

13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

💡God has given His children eternal life, but sometimes Christians doubt this truth because of their feelings.

💡God gave us the Bible so we could know Him and live in a way that pleases Him. He desires that we truly understand His teachings and how they apply to our life. Simply put, the Lord wants us to trust in Him with complete confidence.

💡 We have an enemy, who attempts to undermine that confidence at every turn.

💡We have all been there, joyfully moving along through life, sure of our salvation, and then, suddenly, we stumble into sin, and our feelings take over.

💡 The devil uses our remorse and conflicting emotions to eat away at our confidence. We think, There is no way we could be saved. If I were truly saved, I would never have done such a thing.

💡Overwhelmed by feelings of regret and shame, we find our faith coming under fire.

💡It is amazing how effectively our fleeting emotions can undermine assurance in God’s promises. But we should not really be surprised. After all, we have been conditioned to let our feelings lead us through life. If it feels good, do it is a popular saying from the ’60s. It is still an all-too-common idea today.But be assured, the Lord does not speak in feelings; He speaks in truth.

💡 Whenever your emotions contradict the Bible, you can be sure that the Scriptures are reliable.

💡For a believer, feeling saved is as irrelevant as a husband or wife feeling married. You either are or you are not; feelings simply do not make it so.

💡Have your feelings of regret stolen your confidence in eternal salvation? Lay them before the Lord today, and embrace the certainty that comes only with His truth.

👉Do not allow your feelings rub you of your divine blessings. The reality is that God has given us eternal life in His son, do not allow feelings to steal away this truth from you. It is sacrosanct.

Shalom and Maranatha!
