God’s Desire for Emotions:  God’s Desire for Emotions He created you with emotions He does not desire that you live under the control of your feelings He wants to sanctify them and enhance them as a tool through which our human spirit can flow to give Godly feelings.

The Shifting Sands of Emotions:  The Shifting Sands of Emotions Matthew 7:26-27  "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall. The Shifting Sands of Emotions:  The Shifting Sands of Emotions We all have lived our lives at one point or another by the rule of "If it feels good do it." To live by our feelings suppresses and replaces the truth of God's Word in our lives.  Over and over our lives are being built upon the shifting sands of "I don't feel like it!"     - I don't feel like going to Church.     - I don't feel like reading the Bible.     - I don't feel like Praying. Sad as it is, we place these biblical tasks of our lives along with taking out the trash!  "I don't feel like taking out the trash right now!" Judges 17:6  In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes. The Shifting Sands of Emotions:  The Shifting Sands of Emotions Feelings are important but they must never be the deciding factor in our lives.  Why?  Our feelings can lead us astray from God's Word, the truth for our lives.  Feelings and emotions are irrational and can change quickly.  Feelings are unreliable Matthew 15:19  "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies The Shifting Sands of Emotions:  The Shifting Sands of Emotions "We live in a feel-good society.  We're constantly making decisions based on how we feel at the time, only to pay a dreadful price later on because the truth is, it was a bad decision."   Take note of what Jesus says the outcome is when we fail to live our lives based on the truth,  "... and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall." The Solid Foundation of Facts & Faith :  The Solid Foundation of Facts & Faith . Just the Facts . . . . [facts = God's Word] The Bible not our feelings is our authority.  Jesus speaks of His words, the truth, as a solid rock that will not shift of sift out from underneath us.   The only unchanging reality in our lives is God's authoritative word. Isaiah 40:8  The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever." The Solid Foundation of Facts & Faith:  The Solid Foundation of Facts & Faith Jesus says the wise man is the one who builds his life on the Word.  It would be unwise for us to discount God's Word for what we might happen to be feeling at the moment.  "God's Word is truer than my feelings, my experiences, my circumstances including everything in this world."  - Andrea Groenewald (Campus Crusade for Christ) The Solid Foundation of Facts & Faith:  The Solid Foundation of Facts & Faith David's life was a mess because he had allowed his feelings to be his guide rather than God's Word.  After David was caught in his sin he could have dealt with it with his feelings of just saying, "I'm sorry."  But that's not what God requires.  God is looking for repentance not just sorry feelings. Psalms 32:3-5  When I kept silent, my bones grew old Through my groaning all the day long. 4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah 5 I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD," And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah A BIBLICAL EXAMPLE:  A BIBLICAL EXAMPLE What was plaguing David?  Was just  guilt of hoping not to get caught or guilt knowing he had disobeyed the Word of God.  David Coveted . . . "You shall not covet your neighbor's wife," (Ex 20:17)  David committed Adultery  . . . "You shall not commit adultery." (Ex 20:14)  David Stole . . . "You shall not steal."  (Ex 20:15)  avid Murdered . . . "You shall not murder."  (Ex 20:13) Slide16:  Just Have Faith . . . . [Faith = trust & belief in God's Word] Faith is to take God at His word regardless of what our feelings, intuitions, gut reaction, logic or whatever else is speaking in our lives. All the hero's of faith listed in Hebrews 11 are those who by faith believed and obeyed God's Word despite their feelings or circumstances Slide17:  Just Do It! 1 John 3:19-21  And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him. 20 For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.  Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. Slide18:  Our feelings will tell us ... "Don't love him/her!  They have done you wrong!"   But God's Word says, "But love your enemies." Slide19:  So what are we to do? Luke 5:4-6  When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, "Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch." 5 But Simon answered and said to Him, "Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net." 6 And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking Just do it!:  Just do it! Just start saying ... "... nevertheless at Your word I will ..." and watch God bless you for living life according to His Word. We need to press on! Wrestle.. Pray.. Soak in His word When we fail..His forgiveness and freedom can be found! Philippians 3:13-14 .. Forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead.. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Your word is lamp to my feet and light to my path" ... "Your Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against You God."
