Daily Light – July 4, 2018

Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14  press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”   
(Monday-Friday, from my morning time of study and reflection, I will share with you what God is teaching me.  I ask you then to join me in each day and pray that God will use our time to draw us to a deeper understanding of His will and His ways.  Our objective is simple…to ‘see’ and ‘know’ the light and love of Christ Jesus..‘so that’ we will GO OUT and share the love of Christ Jesus with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)

Today’s Daily Light

Continuing with ‘summary’ thoughts from our study in The Search For Significance..by R. McGee

Yesterday…we talked about depending on God…and using our ‘will’ to choose to obey God and not to determine our course of actions based on ‘feelings’. ..and we now continue by looking at possible reasons our feelings may oppose the ways of God:

Our sinful nature may be prompting us to disobey God.  Galatians 5:17 says, “For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another.’

We may be experiencing spiritual conflict. Satan, our enemy, is a thief who comes only to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10).  If he can get us to live by our feelings instead of by God’s Word then he will effectively steal our joy, kill our motivation to live for Christ, and destroy the consistency of our Christian testimony.  

It may be that our negative emotions are simply the residual feelings of the fear of failure or the fear of rejection that we are in the process of overcoming by claiming God’s truth.
