Faith Is The Way, Not Feelings

Updated on October 23, 2009

As a young child I felt I did know God and had a relationship with Him. As time went on I always wondered why isn't God letting me feel Him, why isn't He letting me see Him. I have learned that Christiananity is not about feelings or emotion. Sometimes we can let our own emotions take control and give up the touch from God. It seems the way He speaks to us is through His word and through other Christians. 

To give an answer before hearing is a foolish thing and a cause of shame. Proverbs 18:13


We need to listen, to hear God from His Word. To give a answer before we truely know what He is saying is foolish. And sometimes our emotions can take us for a long walk. To where their is no end. Listening is very important and our feelings have to be honest, and don't wait for nothing but what God says in His word.


I was always waiting for a feeling, or something I could never get, but as I started reading God's Word and listening for Him it all makes sense, we can be fooled if we wait on anything or anyone besides our God.

James 4:3
Colossians 3:5
Ephesians 4:19
 
 
Who having no more power of feeling, have given themselves up to evil passions, to do all unclean things with overmuch desire. (BBE)
You ask, and don't receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it for your pleasures. (See RSV)
Put to death therefore your members which are upon the earth, fornication, uncleanness, vile passions, evil lust, and unbridled desire, which is idolatry. (DBY)
