David Wilkerson – American evangelist
But I want to speak to you this morning about — my subject this morning, don’t judge your spiritual condition by your feelings. Don’t judge your spiritual condition by feelings.
Now folks, if you get a hold of this this morning, the devil can’t lie to you anymore about your position in Christ. If we could only learn who we are in Christ, our position, not our condition, but our position. If we can understand that, the devil can’t sway you by feelings anymore.
Go to 1 Thessalonians, please, 1 Thessalonians, the fourth chapter. Fourth chapter, verse 1.
You’ll read just one verse, 1 Thessalonians 4:1: Furthermore then, we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as you have received of us, how you ought to walk and to please God, so you would abound more and more.
Read it again.
Furthermore then, we beseech you, brethren, exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as you have received of us, how you ought to walk and to please God, so you would abound more and more.
Now, Father, take this word and multiply it, increase it, and cause us, Lord, to lay hold by the help of the Holy Ghost this morning, to choose that will deliver us from this everlasting terror of our feelings, being up and down, hot and cold. Oh, God, we want to understand by the word of the Lord, the power of the Holy Spirit, the steadfastness that You want us to have in Christ and in the Word, so that in the days ahead when the world is spinning out of control and everything is out of kilter, we will be steadfast, immovable, and we will not be listening to the lies of the devil, we will not be swayed and tossed by winds and waves of doctrine, but we will be steadfast, immovable, and ever increasing in the grace of God. Anoint me to preach this word, I pray. Amen.
