We try to believe God by what we feel, which is our flesh.
We can be mislead by our feelings. If we go by what we feel, our belief system will be like a dysfunctional thermostat. Hot, cold, just right. Then cold, just right, then hot again. This type of dysfunction, which are our feelings, leads to confusion and frustration.
Most believe, if we don’t feel it, we don’t believe it. Faith is not feelings, but truth. There is no confusion or frustration in truth. Neither can you do anything against the truth.
Our belief system should be trusting in God and in his word. God’s word is the truth. Your faith comes by hearing the word of God. Walk by faith.
I Corinthians 14:33 (KJV) – for God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
II Corinthians 13:8 (KJV) – for we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
John 17:17 (KJV) – sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
Romans 10:17 (KJV) – so then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
II Corinthians 5:7 (KJV) – for we walk by faith, not by sight.
