Toyota used to have an ad campaign with the slogan, “Oh what a feeling.” Yes, when life is going great, feeling God seems to be easy. But what about when things are not going so well? Or when life turns to drudgery or it seems to be crashing in around you. How do we know if God is near when there seems to be no answers?
Feelings can be swayed and changed in an instant. Feelings can be surpressed and even faked. They can lead us in the wrong direction.
God is bigger than a feeling. His Word says, “He will never leave you or forsake you.” It also says that, “He goes with you.”
Overcoming feelings is a choice of faith. Faith overcomes fear. Faith overcomes the fear of being alone, fear of not knowing what to do or even how to breathe in this moment. Know today that God is near, that He never left. In the midst of a struggle, choose to believe that God is near.
