By the grace of God, I am what I am.
God’s love tells me the truth of who I am.
God loves me. I am loved.
God provides for me. I am satisfied.
God helps me. I am noticed.
God’s love also strengthens me.
Even in pain, I am confident He is with me because He loves me. “‘When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2
Even in uncertainty, I am assured He has a good plan for my life because He loves me. “‘For I know the plans I hav for you,’ declares the Lord. ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'” Jeremiah 29:11
Even in fear, I am convinced that nothing can separate me from His love because He loves me. “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
May our hearts be strengthened this day by His grace.
Join me tomorrow as we investigate: By my PAST, I am what I am. We will take 3 days to uncover the mistaken identity that says:
- I am what I am by the stupid choices I’ve made.
- I am what I am by painful things others have done to me.
- I am what I am by life’s crummy circumstances.
Let’s not be mistaken. Let’s be brave. Expose. And Be Free!
See you tomorrow!
