Faith is a Choice

3 Apr

‘I do not feel worthy’ is a feeling of religious flesh… I do not doubt that you do not feel worthy, but what has that to do with faith, which in the face of such feelings declares the truth and stands in speechless awe before such a God?…
While our feelings hypnotize us with the lie, and self-loathing demands that it be believed, we must open our mouths and declare His love for us. Faith is not a feeling; it is a choice against our feelings, sometimes every feeling in our being, to believe the revelation of God in Jesus Christ.
