Not Feeling It?

lutherThe feelings fight is a major front on the journey of faith in Jesus. If we base our faith on our feelings, rather than a more stable force, we will consistently struggle with assurance of salvation, trust in God, and understanding of God’s character. The reality is, God’s Word is more sure than our feelings. This poem is attributed to Martin Luther. Hopefully it encourages you today.

“Feelings come and feelings go,
And feelings are deceiving;
My warrant is the Word of God–
Naught else is worth believing.

Though all my heart should feel condemned
For want of some sweet token,
There is One greater than my heart
Whose Word cannot be broken.

I’ll trust in God’s unchanging Word
Till soul and body sever,
For, though all things shall pass away,
His Word shall stand forever!”
