Recently when struggling with God about something that I didn’t think was fair, I felt as if the Holy Spirit rebuked me. He challenged my thinking which was focused on me, how I felt and what I wanted.
It’s hard, if not impossible, to love someone else when I put myself first. When I make my feelings the measuring rod by which I determine if someone is right or wrong or good or bad, they will always fall short in my estimation.
That doesn’t even take into account the fickleness of my feelings. I need to remember God’s counsel that the heart is deceitfully wicked above all things.
