MATT AND I RAN THE STAIRS this morning over at the nearby elementary school. Ten sets equal one mile and we added a set of ten pushups in between each set. We were on set number six when Matt asked, “what set are we on?” I respond, “six”, to which he answers, “it feels like twelve”. It DID feel like 12. Ben Shapiro always says, “Facts don’t care about your feelings”. It may FEEL like you’re going to die, but you’re not, He gives more strength. It may FEEL good, but its not good; it’s completely sinful and disobedient. He’s calling you to repent and obey. It may FEEL like the trial is lasting forever and you’re all alone, but it’s a lie. God is with you and will see you through to the end. Your feelings are faulty and incongruent. Feelings are the cause of the four “D’s”: disbelief, doubt, double-mindedness and disobedience. “He who leans on, trusts in, and is confident of his own mind and heart is a [self-confident] fool, but he who walks in skillful and godly Wisdom shall be delivered.” Proverbs 28:26 ENTER the Word of God- the pure source of FACT. There’s a reason Satan is desperately trying to undermine God’s holy Word: it is the ONLY absolute truth. It is inerrant and infallible. It never fails and is always effective. It is trustworthy. His Word is life and health. It is full of God’s promises and warnings. His Word brings correction and wisdom. You can wholly trust His Word and stand firm on it. Build your house on the firm foundation of His Word and you will never be moved. BUT build on your feelings and you’ll be found to be destroyed by the first hard wave of affliction AND that’s a FACT.
