Our feelings are one of the biggest aspects of our human nature. In some rare cases they have the ability to serve us well. What we don’t realize is how easy it is for the enemy to use our feelings, our human nature against us.
We get hurt in relationships and out of fear of feeling that pain again we over guard our hearts. We essentially allow that fear to dictate our future. We feel secure in our careers or jobs and out of fear of not having that same level of security we never pursue out dreams or true purpose in Christ. We are so afraid of being alone in life that we jump at every opportunity to be in a relationship. Our Fear hides in our feelings, and with that fear we give the enemy the power to keep us from the awesomeness that God has for us.
Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. This is the answer to overcoming this trick of the enemy. We can’t be so quick to trust our feelings because our fears hide there and we know that God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love and sound mind. We should instead consult Christ in our feelings.
It’s time to start being smarter about our lives and to stop allowing the enemy to trick us out of out our blessings. Let’s stop being so quick to trust our feelings, and trust God instead.
