When Numbness Sets In
Jesus said in Mark 4:16 the feelings of a sad person changes immediately when they hear the Word of glad. Verse 17 starts out with a “but.” But if they have no root or attachment of gladness in their heart, immediately they become offended. Immediately their feelings change back to sad.
How you “feel” is very important to you and those around you. When you “feel” successful, you give off success when you walk in a room. But, if you “feel” depressed, you become successful at filling the atmosphere with depression. You control the tone in a room.
Proverbs says that as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. When you think or believe you’ll never amount to anything, you have become numb to the truth of who you are in Christ. When you become numb to the truth, you act the feelings of being worthless out in your life.
For example, when someone has been told all of their life they are worthless, numbness to the truth of the Word is build in their heart. They become successful at depression. The things that happened to Job was because he “built” fear in his heart. He walked in fear, prayed in fear, and built that that he feared in his heart. What he feared came upon him.
You can seek God and His righteousness and things will be added to you. Or, you can establish fear and depression in your heart, and become numb to the truth and become successful at fearing and depression.
You change the way you feel by hearing, and hearing, and hearing until you actually “hear” the Word.
It’s important to pay attention to how you feel. You serve what you feel. If you’re feeling a lie, you will serve that lie. If you’re feeling truth, you will serve truth. If you feel you can, you can. If you feel you can’t, you can’t.
If you feel someone is going to reject you, you will find a way of being rejected by that person.
