Message for April 21, 2019 from Pastor Jerry

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Psalm 91:1-2(NKJV)

            One of the most common symptoms of Christian believer is feeling that at times they are not as close to God as they should be.  We feel separated from the One we desire to feel closest to. “I just don’t feel as close as I should to God.”

            We just do not feel something that we think we should feel in order for us to feel right about our feelings about being close to God.  Writing this sentence is almost as difficult as trying to understand living by one’s feelings. You should learn not to live by your feelings but live by your faith in the Word of God.  Truth is not to be found in your feelings but in the Word of God.

            When Jesus was before Pilate, the Governor, he asked Jesus, What is truth?”  Jesus said in John 17 while praying for His disciples Sanctify them by Your truth.  Your Word is truth.  Faith in God’s Word is how we live an overcomer’s life in this world.  Our mind must submit to every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.  Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. You cannot figure out life with your feelings.  But, by studying the Word of God until you think the way it teaches. So, get started today and don’t quit.  Just keep on keeping on. AMEN!
