In my “tender” age of 29, I am just now figuring out and understanding who I am. Everyday brings struggles that I diligently work toward overcoming. Sometimes, it feels like I have to prove myself to people and remind them of the new creature I am in Christ.
It seems like a lot of people think that I am going to “snap out it” and retreat back to the old me. But, the thing is…once you really and truly experience the goodness of God, you can’t go back! Period!
You see, my happiness lies in the most high. He gives me peace. He soothes my heart. He gives me a joy that no living being can provide…I know who I am in Him!
With Him dwelling in my temple, I am more than a conqueror and am growing every day. See, He knew me before I knew myself, which means regardless of where I see my life going, I must submit to His will. Psalm 139:16, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
He is the lock keeper of my heart and I stand on His word. Philippians 4, And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
When you know him, you want more of Him. You become a habitual seeker of His presence. Psalm 16:11, You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Now I stand for something. The world’s appeal is second rate, dumpster scraps compared to having the blessings of the Lord. Matthew 6:33, But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
— I encourage you to make a declaration NOW to know Him better!
