How do we begin to accept so much less than what we deserve? Why do we question who God says we ARE but easily accept what the enemy says which isn’t true? Why can’t we just get that God wants the best for us and our lives? Why do we give the enemy so much power into our lives? I can tell you from my own personal experiences that it’s when we are not surrounding ourselves around people who can speak into us and pour into us positively and spiritually. It’s when we listen to the lies this world tells us instead of listening to Gods truth about us. It’s because we are to busy watching what others are doing and worrying about what the worlds standards say we are and should be instead of focusing on who God says we are, it basically comes down to staying focused on GOD!!! I can go down the alphabet and count reasons up to a million but it will all mean absolutely nothing if you’re not keeping yourself focused on God. Its only what we do for Christ that’s going to last in the long run, God is the ONLY one that truly matters!! In my life, I chased after the crowds, the men, the money, the drugs and alcohol, the worlds standards, and none of it I mean NONE OF IT mattered nothing and no one has ever stuck beside me and been so good to me like God has and produced such an amazing outcome! At the end of it all everything else left me spent, abused, wasted and confused. We spend our lives chasing after things that don’t do anything but cause us to question our lives and our worth, break our hearts and our trust and waste our lives trying to be people we were never even supposed to be in the first place and hope and pray that when it’s all said and done we live to make it through the chaos and insanity of our lives to be in one piece with our sound mind and judgment being able to recognize that this world has nothing to offer you. Run into the arms of God because His love for you is relentless. He will never leave you nor forsake you because He is absolutely crazy about you. Stop listening to the lies of the world and the enemy and listen to the truth of what God says about you, get in your word and change your atmosphere. YOU are destined for greatness, YOU are so much more than you could possibly imagine and God is truly for you.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." (NIV)
Hebrews 13:5-6 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The LORD is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" (NIV)
Romans 8:31 If God is for us, who can be against us?" (NIV)
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (NIV)
John 8:44 THE DEVIL IS A LIAR. "[The devil] was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar and the father of lies" (NASB).
I can understand the pure joy David had in writing his words of love to you. King of Kings, Lord of Lords I seek your face…I desire to dwell in your secret place…I want to love you as none other has ever yearned to love you before. I need you Jesus; I yearn for your holy presence in my life. I am consumed with thoughts of you…I am in love with you. I am constantly searching for you, longing for an encounter, a word or a touch from you. Unveil your heavenly glory to me O’ Lord. Submerge me in your living water and guide me with your dynamic Holy Spirit…such a peaceful gentleman He is, so wise, knowledgeable and thoughtful He is. Remain the first thought on my mind upon daybreak and the last thought I have as my eyes close at night, even as I dream flood my dreams with manifestations of you…Consume me my Lord.
