I happen to believe that our feelings are valid. When you have a strong feeling about anything whether good or bad it is definitely an indication like an alarm. So in my opinion that intrinsically is what makes it relevant. The problem I’ve fallen into and I know others have as well, is that we equate the validation of the feelings with absolute truth. So essentially what we’re saying is that because I feel this way, it must be true. Let’s look at what the Bible says:

1 Peter 1:6–7

6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

It is clear that we will face trials. We will go through things that will bring up good and bad feelings. The way we combat this is to compare our feeling good and bad with the word of God.
