WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST IS ALL THAT MATTERS (PART ONE)

(PART ONE)

“We are new creations in Christ (2 Cor 5:17)

 

We had our first gathering of the year last month and the area of identity came up. It was an eye opener to see how some of the ladies struggled to see how God saw them. It made me realise that with many of us, we know what the word of God says, we go to church, and we pray and speak of God’s goodness.

BUT if we don’t truly study the word to know and truly believe who God says we are then we will always struggle to live the life He has for us, whilst believing who He says we are.

So we have to take it back the root cause-

-      Why do you struggle to know what the word of God says?

-      What or who have you let in to make you doubt the truth?

-      How do you speak about yourself?

-      How often do you stay in God’s presence to hear Him?

 

The scripture above leads us to understand that our identity in Christ is one of newness and you are no longer the things you did, or the people’s opinions of you. How we are in Christ now should be how we see ourselves and not how we used to be in the world. I read somewhere that our identity can be defined as “the collective aspect of the set of characteristics by which a thing is definitively recognizable or known.”

If you cannot recognise who you are in Christ, you will keep living below His standard for you, miss out on His best for you and will always be frustrated at life. When you are in Christ, that will be shown through your actions, your speech and how you treat others, you will be transformed from the inside out and not just one day, but daily as God will keep doing a beautiful work in us.

We are followers of Christ and no matter what life brings our way it is important to not let that stop us from being great. The difference now is that how we define ourselves will align to the word of God and not the ways of the world.

Hello Ladies,

Dear Father,

Thank you for your love, forgiveness, unconditional love, protection and guidance. May the word of God speak to us in all that we do, whether we are feeling weary, whether there are financial battles, sickness, mind battles, little result, confusion etc we leave all in your hands and pray for the zeal and passion to get in the word and speak and act the word in our lives, now and forever more. Amen.

This is a word I have spoken about for some time now and just wanted to share this to encourage someone. The bible- is there to offer and not limited to-

Guidance

Answers

Intimacy with God

Wisdom

Growth

Clarity

Peace

Healing

Forgiveness

Marriage

Business

To know your destiny

Love

And so much more. 

So come what may believe in the word to work for you

 2 Timothy 3:16 ‘All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness...’

Every word you read in the bible has been God- Breathed and will work in your life with the faith to believe in God and what He says He will do, through you and in your life.

 

So whatever it is that you are going through, open your bible and find where it speaks of that issue, study it and pray it for it to manifest in your life. Don’t keep your bible closed and complain, but rather keep your bible open, pray and let your faith work for you. God is still in the business of blessing you, healing you and elevating you.

Don’t write yourself off and leave the word of God as the last resort, let it be your go to guide in everything big or small. Because it is this same word that has the power to transform your life, not friends or family.

No one can help you like God can, no one can heal you, perfect all that concerns you and still love you unconditionally. But God!!! So stop running to man and run to God with any problem you may have, to not get caught up in a web of lies, wrong leading and destruction.

Be encouraged and know that God is always there for you and will forever lead you. God bless you.
