Heroes of Faith in the Book of Hebrews
He could not be found, because God had taken him away. At times I am so happy I think I will never be sad again. Other times I am so sad I think I will never be happy again…and still other times I feel almost nothing. This means that no matter how I feel or what I experience, I can choose to depend on the Word of God as the unchanging reality of my life.
I look back on that summer evening and that homework assignment as a turning point in my life. That is the truth. That is where I am right now. But, Lord, Your Word says that You love me.
Your love for me is one thing that stands when all else has fallen. At other times I have felt afraid or lonely or depressed. But instead I chose with my will to believe His Word. Even Christ had feelings. He was honest, real, authentic. We, too, have immeasurable freedom to be candid with the Lord about our feelings, to tell Him honestly where we are and what is going on in our lives.
I pray that You would conform me to the image of Christ. We want the result but not the painful process. The Lord is concerned about what we go through, but I believe He is more concerned about how we respond to what we go through.

He allows the trials, temptations, and pressures of life to come so that we have the opportunity to respond either by trusting our feelings and life experiences or by taking Him at His word. I have learned to get into the habit of taking God at His word—and now it is a habit! You and I can either grow accustomed to listening to our feelings, thoughts, and circumstances, letting them control us, or we can be in the habit of taking God at His word despite our feelings and life experiences. We need to choose with our wills to believe that His Word is truer than our feelings.
