Often times we let ourselves be dispirited because of what others say about us. We think about it over and over and meditate on it. Today I want to encourage you to see yourself not as man sees you but as God himself see’s you. Let’s search the scriptures, and find out who we are!
We are fearfully and wonderfully made ! Psalm 139:14
To God be all the Glory. I truly am glad to be back! I have heard from my heavenly Father, telling me to stop fighting battles that are not mine. He is victorious, and has already won every battle for me already. I just need to relax and enjoy the victory! I am his daughter, a child of the King of Kings. I had forgotten I am his princess! Thank you God for the reminder! Indeed He is truly magnificent.
During my sabbatical, I was also reminded praise is not an option it is necessary! Praise is vital to our life as a Christian. We must stop being so conservative, we must not be ashamed of Christ, his Word has warned that if are ashamed of Him before man, He will be ashamed of us before His Father (Luke 9:26).
I was also reminded that the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart must be acceptable in the sight of the Lord.(Psalm 19:14). I have heard this scripture since my youth, however I am actually being taught to be more aware of my words and even my thoughts. They are to speak life not death. The power of both life and death are in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). Many times we are careless with our words. This must stop! I look forward to growing in Christ, seeking to satisfy my hunger for Him. Lord make me more like you!
Do you ever find yourself running out of time and/or resources? Not able to do this or that? Well, of course you can’t do it all! Not alone that is, remember it is through Christ that you can do ALL things! Stop trying to accomplish and conquer things on your own. Stop worrying about and getting frustrated over situations you cannot control. Learn to lean and depend on Christ, he will never let you down and can do what is impossible for you and me to do, without hesitation. Hallelujah! So rebuke those feelings of inadequacy. Our Father in heaven has given us freedom and liberty. Let’s live the abundant life that God has planned for us! Do not be held captive to your desiresany longer, free yourself! Surrender to Christ. He knows just how to handle it. So let Him!
