Living the Cross Centered Life Quotes - Day Nineteen

From Living the Cross Centered Life, by C.J. Mahaney:

Let me ask you: Where do you consistently direct your faith? What does it rest on? Is it your emotional state…or the objective realities that the Word of God and the Spirit of God have revealed? When you read or hear biblical truth proclaimed, what internal conversation takes place in your soul? Is your first reaction, What do I feel about this?

If so, do you plan to continue submitting everything ultimately to your feelings? Or will you instead trust in God’s testimony, so that whenever you encounter biblical truth, your initial question will always be, Do I believe it? That’s the only reliable way to transform your emotions… and to take them into a realm of love and adoration for the Lord that you’ve never before experienced. (p 41)
