This is a sticky statement from Lysa TerKeurst"s new book,"Uninvited". A sticky statement is something that an author has printed in bold type on a page because it is "that " good. It needs to have attention drawn to it. I especially like this one, because it is a truth that we all need.

 Without a doubt Jesus is our victor, our mighty warrior and He has won the battle already for those who call themselves His children. When something happens to cause us to doubt this truth, it doesn't change the fact that it is still true. Our feelings do not dictate what is true and right and good! Hallelujah! I am so glad that our God does not change like my emotions! What I am feeling right now does not make up who I am.

Only God can define who I am and He says, I am chosen." You did not choose me, but I choose you and appointed you that you should go and bear much fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. " {John 15:16 }
And Jesus says to His disciples just before this, "No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing: but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. {John 15:15} We are the most privileged people to live on the face of this earth. God calls us His friends.
