We are not orphans, we are not slaves.
We were created for relationship. Sure, we sing the songs declaring, “I BELONG TO YOU LORD” but we don’t even understand what that really means.
Our Trust is in Ourselves; in OUR desires , in OUR power, in OUR God, in OUR Holy Spirit, in OUR Jesus ….. in OURSELVES.
Our hope must be IN JESUS’ righteousness ALONE.
We cannot make things holy.
We are not Demi-gods.
No… this is the behavior that is being exhibited and it is disheartening.
We trust in ourselves and not In the Godhead oftentimes, unaware.
Trust IN The LORD with ALL OF our hearts.
Lean NOT on our OWN understanding. If we actually ask The LORD to show us how we are not trusting in HIM, He will gladly show us.
But in order for us to hear His response we must first acknowledge that HE alone has the answer we need.
I pray for the SPIRIT of GOD to tear down the veil that every eye has had before reading this post and for every heart to be silent as He ministers to your conscience and your heart.
Lastly, allow Him to direct your paths.
You don’t need another feel good sermon or positive replies to your posts… However, you do need blessed assurance that Jesus is ours.
This assurance allows us to see how important we are on God’s plans!
We are joint heirs!
I was once like that. didn’t understand how loved I was by The LORD. I though that as long as my kids loved me or my husband did, that it was enough. I believed all the lies satan told me.
Lies that I am not good enough, that people don’t love me, that I had to work harder at being saved.
That was the voice of the satan!
Once we realize that JESUS DID IN FACT Walk this earth and died so we can have fellowship WITH the FATHER and is longing for us to trust IN THAT FINISHED WORK, we will stop all our paranoia. We will cease our striving.
The best thing that could happen to me was rejection from people. It puts an end to needing their approval or their opinion.
This is the act of “understanding “. It is what we are to ask for while praying.
Then we can receive LOVE. This love frees us from our own understanding.
We will be able to sleep.
We will be able to forgive.
We will no longer hold on to offenses.
We will stop acting like we have no one in this world, (victim mentality).
We will just be who God said we are all along..,
His son, His daughter and His friend.
