LANGUAGE is EVERYTHING.
Everyday, Social Media posts share memes that tell us things that are meant to encourage, direct and stabilize our life and emotions. Unfortunately, the language continues to point back to the human to do the fixing when there’s only one who can bring the fixing we all truly need.
The world will tell you to mourn loss, get right with yourself, life makes you strong, love yourself and believe in yourself. But when we start studying the scripture and earnestly seek the truth of the ways God intended for us to live, we find He has quite the opposite advice than the positive lies we tell each other!
He tells us that the wages for sin is death, so why would we mourn the loss of sin? He tells us to get right with Him and we will not struggle with our identity in Him. He tells us that He is our strength when we are weak! Why would we dismiss the Most High when He has offered to fight our battles for us? He explains that we as humans are frail and damaged by TOKOGAE, but by Him and Him alone, we are Graced, Loved and Worthy. Why would we even try and be worthy without Him? And finally, it is by BELIEVING in Christ, we receive Grace – why in the world would we believe in ourselves instead?
9 Verses that Strengthen Us, Purify our Understanding and Celebrate the Truth we Know as Believers
The point of this life is not to become stronger… He is our Strength in our weakness. Isaiah 40:29
It’s not about overcoming obstacles, It’s about Resting in Him who is greater than he who is in the World. 1 John 4:4
Self Love isn’t the key, it’s about Receiving His Love as the Best Love we will ever know. Psalms 86:15
It’s not about Us in any way, shape or form, He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. John 14:6
When we center our thoughts on the truth, it brings a new way of thinking which in turn brings prosperity to our Lives. Don’t let this world or it’s ways be a distraction. The enemy will consistently decieve the flesh, Ephesians 4:22, but by the Transformation of our Minds we walk a life that is Holy and Righteous without grieving or wavering. Ephesians 4.
Be Separated, Be Different, Be Alienated to this world for if we truly Believe in Christ’s work, and call it finished as our Heavenly Father has, then we know there is nothing more that can be added to our Salvation. 1 Peter 2:11.
