The Battle Between Truth & Feelings

"The worst battle I've ever fought is between what I knew and what I felt."How true is this?  Emotions and feelings can feel so like truth.  They can be so blinding, leading us on a goose chase to get what we think (feel) we need.  They become the thing we live for and strive after.  They can lead you away from good friendships, from the truth you grew up learning, running from good and clear counsel.  It's so dangerous to chase after your feelings, believe them to be truth over everything else- over true wisdom, truth, honesty, true love and friendship, and blind you to follow after the worlds version of truth or what your heart wants.  How scary is that. 
What we know is truth...
We know as believers that God's word is the only source of truth.  It is our anchor, our truth, what we live by.  When the world feeds us lies and these half-truths fueled to feed our sinful desires, we can always turn to God's word to lead us and guide us in our lives.  
But feelin…

Slave

"But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life."
Romans 6:22
This book, though it was long and dragging, did have many great encouragements and examples of a what a salve of Christ is. 
It went through what slaves use to look like and how they acted.  Roman slaves were glad to be linked to their masters, especially if he was higher in class, so that they could claim status for themselves.  It made me think of how much more amazing it is for us to be slaves of God, because He created everything and is the highest master of all!
We are slaves of Christ, which is the highest honor ever.  Everyone is a slave to someone or something.  Most people think they are in control of their own lives and they get to decide what they what to do and how they want to live, but they are either slaves of sin or slaves of Christ.  I find it very encouraging that God is Master over all, even the devil himself.
