I read the following statement written by Eugene Peterson
and it resonated in my heart and I wanted to share it with you:
"We would learn not to interpret God's word by our feelings but that out feelings would be interpreted by God's word"
I recommend many books on this blog to encourage you on this journey that God has called you. God's word is by far the first and foremost book that we should refer to when we are seeking His will.
God's word is certain, steady and true.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever.
Our feelings come and go. We need God's word to become heart knowledge not just head knowledge.
The only way we can let that knowledge move from our head to our heart is to act on the truth in God's word. Be obedient to what God puts on our hearts. Then as things get challenging in what he has called us to do, make sure that we go back to his promises and his counsel in His word. If you have trouble remembering them I suggest that you write the scripture on an index card and carry it around with you for quick reference.
Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
