Feelings are fleeting but faith stands true. What do I mean by this? Feelings come and go – even within one day we can experience a number of different emotions. One day we might feel like God is far, the next He feels close.
But here’s the thing: feelings aren’t very reliable. Our faith in God, in His promises and who He is – now that’s reliable. That’s what we rely on when times are hard.
Spending time in His word, relying on the truth we find there can boost our faith and help us get through tough days. Our feelings aren’t trustworthy, but our God is.
