2 Corinthians 4:4
The survival and self-improvement programs of the religious systems of this world veil the minds of unbelievers; exploiting their ignorance about their true origin and their redeemed innocence. The veil of unbelief obstructs a person’s view and keeps one from seeing what the light of the gospel so clearly reveals: the glory of God is the image and likeness of our Maker redeemed in human form; this is what the gospel of Christ is all about. (Mirror Bible)
Are you willing to allow God to change you?
The enemy has created such an intricate “religious” infrastructure that is pleasing to the eye and to the flesh. His goal is to convince you that you can survive and improve yourself, by yourself. You can’t fix yourself. What joy the enemy has dragging you from church to church; down the rabbit hole and up the mountain; with this and that self-help book, seminar and workshop. You are trying to deal with who you are and make yourself better; when you are not sure who you are. You have to go to God for the solution to what you see (or someone told you was) as a problem. It may not be a problem at all. You were skillfully designed and crafted by God to produce a particular personality and a particular way of doing things. Though you may have done some damage with bad choices, you have to stay in the presence of God so He can buff out kinks and scars created when you went your own way. In doing so, He maximizes your potential. It is not something you can do on your own.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I ask You to forgive me for seeking everyone for solutions and going everywhere for answers and not coming directly to You. You are my creator. You know exactly who I am. You are the only One who can fix what I’ve messed up and set me back on the path to becoming who You created me to be. I submit myself to You. Please repair the damage that I have done. I thank You in advance for all You will do…
