Three Friends - Fact, Faith & Feeling

Fact, Faith, and Feeling were walking on the fence together. Fact is God's Word, it says, nothing shall ever separate me from the love of God, my Faith accepts and receives this, and it makes me Feel good.

I am ok as long as I allow "Feeling" to follow "Faith and Fact".

Signs and wonders follow those that believe(have faith in) the fact (truth of God's words). If we are walking on the fence in this manner, we will be steadfast and feel good about our walk.

Picture this scenerio; The three (Fact - Faith - Feeling)turn around and began to follow Feeling . They all three fell off the fence! WHY? We can't follow feeling.

We must follow Fact based on Faith which will eventually produce the right Feeling...

Romans 8:35-39 (The Message)

31-39 So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God's chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ's love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:

They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
We're sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.
None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I'm absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God's love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
