1 John 3:19
In this we know that our beingness is sourced in that which is really true about us; our doing good is not phony or make-believe; this is who we are in God’s sight and in his belief! (Mirror Bible)
Are you too good to be true?
You are being trained by the Holy Spirit to walk in a place where you no longer have just the “form of godliness”, but you walk in the power and authority of God as well.
John 14:12 “I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! (The Passion Translation TPT)
You have to know and believe in what God has done and is continuing to do in your life. You are being changed from glory to glory. Look at your responses today as compared to what they were a week, a month or a year ago. Those changes represent God standing up in you.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. (Amplified Bible AMP)
It does not matter if you are surrounded by people who say things like, “That’s not real, nobody is that nice, or that happy.” You walk in confidence and peace, not through pretense or for the praise of men. You walk in this place because the power of God transformed you.
2 Corinthians 3:4-5 Such is the reliance and confidence that we have through Christ toward and with reference to God. 5 Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God. (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition. AMPC)
All praise to God, not because of what you do or don’t do, but because of who you are!
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You because my worship is real. I live my life to give You glory. I understand I am sometimes misinterpreted and misunderstood. The enemy is always trying to plant the thought of some hidden agenda behind how I live my life. I love You. It is not phony. I know You see into my heart. I can’t fool You. I simply love You. There is no other way for me to show You how much I love You than through the life I live. How I walk through the tough times and what I say when I am being pressed shows the world; not who I am, but Who You are. Thank You for every opportunity to amaze me and others. I don’t want to misrepresent You ever. My life, and how I live it, is an expression of my gratitude. My prayer is that I please You…
Yes Father….I love you for who you are….Thank You for always loving me for who I am…in Jesus Name!!!
