It is an emotional time.
It could be a fearful time.
It is definitely time to stop and consider what you know.
As the Holy Spirit so often does, He stopped me last weekend when a person said, "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32.
Know the truth.
Not feel the truth.
That prompted me to consider, in this emotionally charged moment, to consider how God views knowing and feeling.
To start with, "feel" and all its forms appears 27 times in the entire Bible.
"Know" and all its derivations and iterations appears 1137 times.
Let that sink in for a second.
If we know God's word to be truth, then we know there is even something being said in the frequency of a word.
God is into Knowing.
So what do we know?
