Some days, we’re just not “feeling it.”

“It” could be a general apathy, or specific to our relationship with God. But Scripture tells us what to do when our emotions rebel against us or don’t let us feel anything at all. Romans 12:2 says, “Don’t be conformed any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind.” How do we do this? By knowing the Word of God. But not to, as James says, be hearers only, but to then do it. We have to tell ourselves the truth. Every day, every hour, every minute, until our heart follows suit.

This we know to be true: we have victory in Christ! When it seems there is now way, He is our way. We will see the enemy run, even if it feels like we are constantly in battle, and we will see the victory come because we already have it thanks to Jesus. No matter where life finds you today, the love of God in Christ is unfailing and you can hold on to it with all you are. Hebrews 10 says to hold unswervingly to the hope you possess, because God is faithful. He is who He says He is.

Psalm 20 is a beautiful reminder of this truth. David writes: “This I know: The Lord gives victory to his anointed.” Those God has called, you and me, and all who call on the name of the Lord, have received victory today in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Let our trust reflect the truth we believe.
