Learn to let go when you want to change people or change yourself. First of all, that is far from who we are meant to be. We were made to accept Christ and then to accept ourselves the way God accepts Christ because Christ lives in us. Amen. We are to accept ourselves just the way we are and let God love on us, as a result, then we will be changed. Amen. So let the desire to change inside of you to die and as a result you will be changed :) Amen. Jesus said, "Unless a seed die, it stands alone, but if it dies it produces many many seeds." John 12:24
I am the object of my God's love and compassion. I am not to earn His perfect love and acceptance of me. I am the object of His mercy and grace. For example, my wife is not put here to do things that earn my love. No! She is the object of my love. She is the one I love, and I am the one she loves. We are the object of each other's love. In other words, I pour out my love on her, and God longs to do the same to and for us. We must empty of our hands of the worthless things that are not true blessings, that is our efforts and the things we are trying striving and straining in our own efforts and stress to do to be made perfect in God's sight and rejecting his grace as a result; rather we need to instead accept his grace and thank Him and joyfully receive His love. How? catch it the moment you realize you are doing it in your mind and confess, "God, I am feeling this way, God take my concern." And God promises that he will carry our sorrows and He will do it. It is our job to completely let it go. It is also our job to completely deplete it of it's power. Concentrating on the problem will only increase it's power so we give it no more to eat in our mind and on our time's watch. Instead we look to focus on and stay in God's promises and word. The more we focus on God's promises the more we are giving God room to work powerfully in our lives. He is faithful to keep us in His perfect peace.
Today, I have caught insecurity by the legs and he is caught! I was proud of being insecure but now I am not and I believe God for being bold and confident and fearless in Christ alone! My confidence is in Believing Christ.
New are we. We are new in Christ and it's different for everybody! We are all uniquely made new! Amen!
