How to Get Your Feelings to Line Up With Truth.

My favorite verse coming out of my teenage years was this:
Proverbs 16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

There are many things of the spiritual life and the Kingdom of God that just don't seem right to us. The reason those things don't make sense is because very often we operate, not in the power and will of the Holy Spirit, but in the works of the world, the flesh, and the devil. As humans, we understand when we do. When we swing a hammer for a few weeks we begin to understand the need for and uses of the tool. Without the discipline of action we lose out on insight.

Simply put, this verse tells us that if we do right, God will help us think right. What part of God's will are you refusing to do because you just can't understand it? God tells us to do what He says and then He will help us understand. It is prideful of us to demand to understand before we submit to obey.
