May the rush and worry culture have no impact on you. May the Lord Himself set your pace and establish you in your purpose. His yoke is precious, beautiful, divine and doable. Walk joyfully today!
Something supernatural happens in our lives when we begin to understand who we are in Christ and what we posses in Him. Read this powerful passage from Ephesians 1:15-19 I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you wisdom to see clearly and really understand who Christ is and all that He has done for you. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can see something of the future He has called you to share. I want you to realize that God has been made rich because we who are Christ's have been given to Him. I pray that you will be begin to understand how incredibly great His power is to help those who believe Him.
So, how do we grow in our capacity to understand His love and His divine imprint on our lives? We start by simply taking Him at His word. We believe what He says about us is true, even when it doesn't feel true. We wrap our arms around His love and let it sink deep into our souls, where most lies go to hide.
We lift our chin and refuse to look at our circumstances apart from Him. You and I are blessed beyond comprehension, and we posses an increased understanding of who we are and what we possess by knowing Jesus deeply, following Him closely and trusting Him consistently.
