I don't know if these thoughts are God's or not

Question:

I need an answer. I'm bipolar, and I have all kinds of thoughts and feelings. I don't know if it's God or not. I argue with my husband a lot about this.


Answer:

""For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD" (Isaiah 55:8).

Just because you think something, it does not follow that those thoughts or feelings come from anywhere but from yourself. God tells us what He thinks through the Bible. He doesn't communicate directly with people these days. "God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world" (Hebrews 1:1-2). It is only through Jesus that we have access to God. "Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me"" (John 14:6).

You need to stop imagining that your thoughts and feelings are from God.
