Fresh Hope – 29th December 2018

Feelings are a wonderful thing…
Like,  I feel loved, I feel happy, I feel warm, I feel content…
Yet feelings can also be dangerous…
Like, I don’t feel like getting out of bed,
I don’t feel like having a shower, I don’t feel like brushing my teeth, OR more dangerous like…
I don’t feel that God loves me…
I don’t feel like praising…
I don’t feel like giving.

When your feelings are wrong, be careful, you can stop God doing what He wants to do in your life because of your feelings…

When Jesus was on the cross the Bible tells us that He felt forsaken, He felt abandoned. Yet He did not give into His feelings, He did not get off the cross and say “forget this”, He went with what he knew was right.

Today, don’t let your feelings stop you praising, don’t let them stop you receiving, don’t let them stop you giving, don’t let them keep you in bed, when you should be up and making life count, don’t let them stop you having an encounter with the Almighty God.

If your feelings are a little off this morning get them back to where they should be – push through and allow God to do something amazing in you today.

Make a decision to follow what you KNOW , not what you feel.
