No Nebulous Nudging!

2 Corinthians 7:2-16

I just feel so bad!” Kelli said. “I feel like a failure, like there’s nothing of value in me!”

I could relate! Sometimes I feel so negative about myself that it is hard to see I have anything to give anyone–especially God. I have learned a few facts over the years. I have learned the enemies of our souls whisper into our hearts that we are worthless, that we are horrible people.

Why? If he can keep us condemning ourselves, we’ll be unproductive, not only in telling others about the glorious freedom God gives, but we will also fail to live in victory.

I have also learned that when feelings are nudged from the Holy Spirit, they are focused. The Holy Spirit doesn’t convict us of “just being bad in general.” Instead, he points to specific behaviors or actions. The goal is not to make us feel bad but to point out specific areas we need to bring to him.

Feeling negative vibes? Move ahead in confidence that God’s smile rests on you.
