Joyce Meyer (August-16-2021) Daily Devotion: Truth vs. Feelings. 

“But I can’t help the way I feel,” Angie moaned.

Most of us hear things like this often. It usually means that the way someone feels is settled, and they believe they have to let those feelings lead them. For many people, this is an unchallenged fact of life.

We have feelings, and sometimes they’re strong, but they don’t have to run our lives. Oftentimes we allow our feelings to determine our decisions and, ultimately, our destiny. With that mindset, if we feel discouraged, we stay discouraged; if we feel victorious, we see ourselves as victorious; if we feel depressed, we must be depressed, and so on. 

Someone once said, “My feelings are emotions—they are not reality.” In other words, just because we feel a certain way doesn’t make that feeling a fact, it only means that we feel that way in the moment.

As an example, Janet sells real estate, and when she makes a sale, she feels wonderful and successful. Last month she sold five upscale homes and made an excellent commission. This month she’s sold only one, and she feels like a failure. Is Janet a failure? Not at all! On some days she feels that way, but that doesn’t mean it’s true.

Today I may not feel God at work in my life. But is it actually true that He’s not working, or is it simply the way I feel? If the enemy can convince us that our feelings are reality, it becomes a lot easier for him to defeat us. I know many people who feel as though God doesn’t love them—that’s how they feel, but it definitely isn’t the truth.

Years ago, I spoke in a church, and many people came up to me to tell me how my message had encouraged them. I beamed because I was still new in ministry, and I really needed lots of compliments in order to feel successful. One man said, “I didn’t agree with anything you said. You need to get your theology straight.” And he walked away.

Immediately discouragement overwhelmed me. I had tried so hard to let God speak through me to the people, and I felt like a failure. As I left the church, I thought about what had happened. At least fifty people had told me how my words blessed them. Only one man came to me with a negative message. How did I react? I believed the negative. I allowed his words to shift my thinking, and I convinced myself I had failed.

The truth was, I hadn’t failed. I had listened to the wrong voice and allowed it to decide my feelings and how I would see myself. After that, I determined to never again allow one negative voice to discourage me and make me feel like a failure. Perhaps I had failed to help that man—which I couldn’t do anything about—but my teaching had truly encouraged many others. One woman had tears in her eyes when she told me that I had given her exactly the right word she needed to hear.

After the service, I reminded myself that what I experienced had been a negative feeling, but it had not been reality. I was new to public speaking, and the man who had been critical knew that. Then I started to quote Scriptures that reminded me of who I am in Christ.

 I thought of Romans 10:9–10, which is today’s passage. We often quote these two verses when we’re talking about salvation, but it’s true for everything else in life as well. Paul says that we need to believe in our heart and confess with our words, so I stopped and said aloud, “God, I believe I’m in Your service. I believe I did my best for You. I believe You used my words to bless a lot of people tonight, and I don’t have to listen to that one negative voice.”

Within minutes, I felt better. (See how quickly our feelings can change?) Reality hadn’t changed, but my mindset had. When I refused to allow negative, wrong thinking to turn me from reality, it completely turned things around.

Popular sermons online

As the concept suggests, a preacher is one who practices the art of preaching. The word "preaching" is originally associated with the religious sphere of activity. Language researchers note that of all religious texts, this word - like the type of activity itself - is most closely associated with Christianity. Preachers teach Bible truths when speaking to believers or unbelievers. 

Most of the Bible's sermons are in the New Testament. The sermon, as we find it in the Book of Acts and the Epistles, is expressive, but at the same time brief. It is built on the fundamental truths of Christianity: the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The preaching of the Church, in whatever form it is delivered - be it an ardent call to repentance for sins and salvation or the gospel story of a relationship with God and people - is by nature Christocentric.

Christian online preaching isn’t just a statement of spiritual truths, but as a sacred act, during which the preacher, in cooperation with the Lord the Holy Spirit, accomplishes the work of salvation for unbelieving listeners and the process of spiritual growth for the saved. Words spoken by a person cannot strengthen faith, but the biblical sermon in the mouths of preachers has a special power that can transform a person's soul. It is on this supernatural power of preaching that the preacher's authority is established.

Despite the fact that the evangelical Church teaches about the priesthood of every born-again Christian, in the work of biblical preaching, special attention is paid to the character and moral character of the preacher. The moral right to proclaim eternal biblical truths, to preach the Gospel from the pulpit or in another setting on behalf of the Church, can not only be those who know these truths, but who have Christian virtues, a character that reflects Christ. We are talking about a person who sincerely loves God and the people to whom he addresses, deeply interested in the eternal and earthly well-being of his listeners. A person with the good name of a Christian, who has a "good testimony" confirmed by time and the Church. Since we are talking about eternal, enduring truths, the writing of which was inspired by the holy God, proclaim them on behalf of the Author, i.e. of God Himself, it is permissible for the one who knows Him personally, has constant communion with Him and obeys Him implicitly. From the point of view of the essence and basis of the message that he proclaims, the preacher is not the author of his message and therefore doesn’t have the right to change the truths being proclaimed. He represents the interests and fulfills the will of the One who authorized him for this with the authority of His glorious name, and, therefore, the preacher is obliged to accurately convey to his audience what was entrusted to him by God. Freely interpreting Scripture and presenting to the audience their own interpretation of eternal biblical truths, posing as God's revelation on behalf of God, is not only a distortion of the truth, but also an ethical violation that entails consequences. However, in the sermon, it is not forbidden to mention personal experience, as well as the experience of other people, examples from various areas of public life to the extent that these examples correspond to the truth and contribute to a more accurate and understandable message of it.  

Of course, in the modern world, taking into account the development of communications, a preacher is expected to possess the skills of oratory. This is not a strict requirement, but it is always encouraged, as it is an undeniable advantage and serves the greater benefit and success of the preaching work.

There are many preachers in modern Christianity who have achieved recognized success in the preaching work.
