Emotions make great messengers & bad bosses.
B. What's true? That's easy. Truth is real/reality. But knowing what's real, right, wrong, true, false, etc. is not always easy.
Recently I heard a pastor caution against opening your Bible in search of specific answers to particular questions. Instead, he encouraged reading God's word daily, as you'd read most any book, & to look there - where you'd be reading anyhow that day - to see what God has to say about your most pressing questions. This made a lot of sense to me bc I've learned that one can essentially make the Bible say just about whatever they want it to say. In one situation this seems right & in another it doesn't. I believe that's bc there is a time for everything. What's right in this situation might be wrong in that one. By reading God's Word "this way"/daily (well... almost) I find that He faithfully meets me where I'm at - that place where all the variables (circumstances, motives, feelings, etc.) combine to make whatever situation I'm dealing with unique. So often, when I'm done reading I feel both convicted & encouraged - & so I sense His leading about what to do & what not to do & where to go from here & where not to go from here. This is where my relationship with God gets quite personal. It's hard to explain but nonetheless, from experience, I've found this to be true.
so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.
