Today’s 333 Devotional: “It’s Not About Feelings”
Far too often we live our Christian lives based upon how we feel. But God and His word never tell us to fulfill our Christian duty based upon how we may feel on a particular day.
Now, we may not be in the mood. But God didn’t say “Worship Me when you feel like it.” Instead, we need to get over ourselves and worship God despite how we feel, because if there is one thing I’ve come to realize is that feelings lie.
We wake up in the morning and we’re tired and we just don’t feel like reading God’s word or taking the time to pray. Or we come home and are tired and we’re not in the mood to take time with our family or with the Lord.
So, what if we’re tired or not in the mood, let’s read God’s word and pray anyway. God never gave us holy suggestions. He gave us commands.
“Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17-18)
“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)
But this goes beyond just reading God’s word and praying. It goes to everything God says in His word.
Therefore, when Sunday morning rolls around and we just don’t feel like going to church, let’s go to church anyway. The Bible says, “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)
God’s blessings are ours when we obey, not when we feel like it.
