Hey everyone. My break from writing was needed in more ways then one, but God knew. He knows it all and learning to trust God’s Word is an essential part to living a Christian life. I made the decision to press in further during my devotion times and that brought up some areas in my life that needed some work. I heard it said once that we don’t pray and worship to change God, but its to change us. I needed God in some areas that He wanted in on, so I opened up and God showed me what to do.
I started to speak God’s word into and over my life more. I also started believing and trusting it more about what it says. There is a verse in the bible that says, ‘let God’s word be true and every man a liar.’ God’s word needs to be our truth in our lives. The meaning of truth is ‘highest form of reality.’ So God’s word needs to be the highest form of reality to us.
When I was growing up I didn’t see myself as being anything special. I had very little self esteem, my life was so average. I spent a lot of time daydreaming of having superpowers and saving the planet. I would dream about knowing famous people who would call me for advice or to hang out. I would dream about finding out I had a rich uncle who left me a huge inheritance. I would dream of inventing something that everyone in the whole world needed to be happier. Then I would wake up from my imagination and find everything average again.
After I became a born again christian I still have struggled with this way of thinking, minus the day dreams of course. I still believed this lie. That is one of the areas God showed me He wanted to change in me. He wants us to see ourselves the way He sees us
Before I made you in your mother’s womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I chose you for a special work. I chose you to be a prophet to the nations. Jeremiah 1:5
But you are his chosen people, the King’s priests. You are a holy nation, people who belong to God. He chose you to tell about the wonderful things he has done. He brought you out of the darkness of sin into his wonderful light. 1 Peter2:9
The Father has loved us so much! This shows how much he loved us: We are called children of God. And we really are his children. 1 John 3:1
The list goes on and on about what God calls us and how much He loves us. He has a great plan and work for each of us. It’s so amazing!! After I spent these last few weeks spending more time in God’s word it has changed the way I see myself and my life. My old way of seeing myself and the lies that gripped me since childhood are no longer there. I trust what God’s Word says about me instead. I am a child of God and I believe what Gods says about me. That is my truth; my highest form of reality.
