Seek, inquire of and for the Lord...

Don't' Let Feelings Rule


Psalm 119:50

God showed me that we are always going to have feelings, and that denying the existence of them is not Godly. We do have to learn how to manage them, so they don't manage us.


If we live by our feelings, we will be destroyed, because our feelings aren't always in line with God's truth. We are to walk by faith in His promises, and not by sight or how things appear or the way we feel (see 2 Corinthians 5:7). Ask God to keep your feelings balanced with the truth of his Word today.


Temptation Isn't Sin


Psalm 13/:3

Temptation to do wrong can make you feel horrible. You may think, I shouldn't be going through this; I shouldn't be having a problem with this. But God taught me that temptation isn't sin; we sin when we give in to temptation.


The Bible says temptation will come. It doesn't say, "Woe unto him to whom it comes," (see Matthew 17:7). Jesus told us to pray that we would not give in to the temptation when we are tempted (see Luke 22:40).


Psalm 105:4 is a great way to start your day right. I say, "Seek, inquire of and for the Lord, and crave Him and His strength (His might and inflexibility to temptation); seek and require His face and His presence [continually] evermore."
