Hi everyone, am i the only one or is there anyone else thankful for this holiday break? I wish the holidays could stretch a little longer but then its not just about me. Many of us have jobs, businesses, school, life to get back to. Wondering what holiday am talking about? Well, i am referring to the break given to all our Muslim faithfuls as they round up their fast and since it’s a national break it extended to every one in the country.
Yesterday, I wrote on agreeing with God and how we need to value ourselves and always know that God does not measure our worth by what we do. https://whitneyibeblog.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/agree-with-god-be-doubtless/?preview=true.. Today, my little one said to me she doesn’t want to go to school anymore. I asked her why she would take such a decision and she said “I am not good in mathematics and i keep getting low scores.” “Everyone keeps laughing at me”. I have always known mathematics is not one of her strengths, she prefers to write and loves to paint but her passing mathematics is important and prerequisite to making it to another class, and so i promised to get her a mathematics home teacher that will take her through some exercises after school and also assist her with whatever she may need to get her sums right.
Having promised her all these i also reminded her that ” She only becomes what she believes”. If she believes she will never get her sums right nor pass her exams then she will never get it right and she will never pass her exams either. I could see the disgust on her face when i told her if she believes she can’t pass then she won’t pass. She immediately said “I believe i can do this Mum and i will do it right. Will you help me?” I smiled and hugged her while reassuring her that i will help her.
Many of us today believe more in our weaknesses and failures and gradually become weak to take bold steps much less succeeding. Our thoughts are very powerful, if we dwell so much on them we see them coming to pass even without us consciously been aware of it. Proverbs 23:7 (KJV) For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
The same thing happens to us christains and believers. When you come to know who you are in Christ believing what the Bible says about you, then no matter how you feel, and no matter what others say, God’s promises concerning you will be released in your life through faith. You may make mistakes, but if you keep believing what God’s word says about you, then you will become who God says you can be; you will do what he says you can do and you can have what he says you can have. But on the other hand, you are not likely to experience the blessings of God’s promises if you do not believe them. Daniel 11:32 (KJV) And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”
Are you believing God’s word in every area of your life right now? If not, you can change that by simply making the decision to believe. Are you applying the truth of God’s word to every situation in which you find yourself? If not, why not make a change today? What do you believe about yourself? Does it agree to God’s word or to man’s pronouncement? You can decide to believe everything God says about you and embrace his plan for you. You do not have to believe what man says or wait for any feeling; you can make a decision. What do you believe about your future? Does it reflect the truth of God’s word? What do you believe about your past? Does it align with God’s truth? What do you believe about the situations that seem impossible like that of my little girl’s? Are your beliefs scriptural?
The answers to these questions will determine how you see yourself. To really know who you are and walk in the freedom and power of your identity in Christ, your beliefs, must align with the truth of God. The simple truth is “You can not be defeated when God is on your side.” Become the warrior you believe you are. God bless you….
