As I lay here, consumed with many thoughts, I try to understand why am I struggling with sleep tonight. There are so many changes going on currently, I can’t even keep track of what I should be concerned with. But one thing I am sure of…CHANGE WILL HAPPEN!…I have realized tonight (that deep in the heart revelation) God’s plan is elaborate, yet deliberate!
Yes, a lot of changes are taking place. Relationships are shifting. Roles are being defined differently. Spirituality is being heightened! All to prepare the body of Christ to minister to this lost world.
I courageously accept with faith, my future in Christ. Who I am in Him is secure.
We may not know what will happen daily when we wake up, but the important thing is, He graciously allows us TO wake up. For that I am grateful!
I will deliberately go to sleep with confidence, and be prepared to start my day unafraid of what He has planned for my future.
To know Him is to Trust In Him…stop being concerned with what is to come and exist for His glory!!!
Weakness….ugh! A word dreaded by anyone who has ever struggled, compromised, lost, or battled. Sad thing is, being weak always puts the focus on OUR abilities, and not CHRIST’S!
We must (this is imperative in the Christian walk) come to the end of ourselves. Apart from Christ, we can do nothing…but in Him all things are possible. We read it, but do we believe it.
Let us start by getting rid of controlling everything and everyone around us. Let us admit we don’t know it all, and can’t do it all. In a world were being an Alpha male/female is rewarded, we have to look to our ALPHA GOD!…He loves for us to be at our lowest, so He can show the world how great He is…His glory shows up when our self sufficiency ends. His power comes upon us, when we let go. Trust in Him. Let go of pride and allow Him to be your All…it’s OK to be weak, because then He is strong. Be Weak, Be Blessed And Be Made Whole! ~ ASB
It amazes me how we as a people settle for “dysfunction”. How were are comfortable in chaos. How we try to please those that are unpleasant. How sad it is that we cannot recognize the goodness of God because we have inhabited so long in the foolishness of this world. If you are saved and redeemed by the blood of Christ, You don’t have to live like that!
You are more than a conqueror! You are fearfully and wonderfully made! You are the apple of God’s eye, and He adores you.
Stop settling for the treatment of this world. Stop seeking for friendships and relationships that aren’t worthy of You.
Whatever you give value to, is what you will use to measure your own worth. That means, if the opinions of others matter more to you than God’s, then that’s who you will allow to determine your worth. If your career matters more to you, your job status and pay scale will determine your worth. If you spend time seeking a significant other,rather than the Kingdom of God, how they feel about you determines how you feel about you. Etcetera… etcetera….
You have to know your worth based on who CHRIST says you are. That means you have to spend time alone with Him, seeking His heart!
You have Value!!! Now go walk in it!
