Knowing the truth of what GOD says about you will set you free to be you.
Many people are bound up in untruths and deceptions from the enemy – and insults and criticisms and rejections and judgements that people have told us that the enemy has used to construct a prison of limitations. But Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil and set us free.
How WE see ourselves has power and influence in our lives:
We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them. Numbers 13:33
Because the Israelites saw themselves as small, powerless, and insignificant they were then seen as small, powerless, insignificant grasshoppers by the people possessing the promised land. It was the peoples perception of themselves that limited their ability to take the land and have faith in God. It was the peoples incorrect perception of themselves that hijacked them fulfilling the call of God.
God’s Word is the truth. It is the truth about spiritual things and about who He is and about how we are to live our lives. It is the truth about what God can do and will do and it is the truth about who He has made us to be.
God’s Word must be elevated to the place where it is the last word in our lives.
God’s Word is the final authority in our lives.
What God says goes.
What God says is the way it is.
Not just in the DOING of our lives but in the BEING of our lives.
Not just in the DOING – the be kind and be generous, don’t give in to lust and anger and lying and ten commandments type stuff, but in the BEING of our lives – I am LOVED, I am FORGIVEN, I am PRECIOUS.
