Do Not Live Entitled But Humbled!

IMG_3410

The basic human nature is selfishness.  The shortest yet most powerful word that gets us driven, tossed and turned is the word “I”.  This “what about me” syndrome costs.  But THANK GOD for His abounding  and unfailing love that He sent His only begotten Son Jesus to save us, to fill us with Himself, until we get filled to overflow with love that rips the ‘I” out of us and redirects our focus unto Him and to the ones He positions in front of us.  Truly, we are only empowered to love because He loved us first.

Have you ever wandered around your house minding nothing and all of a sudden you hear one line of a verse that is impressed in your heart?  Oh well, I have just experienced one recently.  I was in my kitchen opening the fridge door and a still small voice from deep within me said, “confess your sins to one another.” (James 5:16)

Identity Matters

 

IMG_2855When we know who we are IN CHRIST, we will no longer strive to be who we’re not.  When we completely know how deeply loved we are by the Most High God Who is our Father, how awesomely thought of we are, how faithfully looked after we are, how fully attentive He is to us, how He sees us with knowledge and compassion, how He unfailingly pursues us, the certainty and confidence we have IN HIM rises up to a higher degree.

Great God!

If having a GREAT GOD Who loves us deeply is the focal point in our lives, it puts a stop to the limitations that we are in and causes our murmurs and complains to cease.  It terminates FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) and cultivates our confidence that indeed there is NOTHING impossible with Him.

“For the Lord is a GREAT GOD, a great King above ALL gods.  He holds in His hands the depths of the earth and the mightiest mountains.”  Psalm 95:3-4 NLT
