Continuing on with Day #7 21 Day Challenge -
Book: Authentication Process
In the book, we are focusing on three perspectives of connecting the Believer to a life of purpose:
1. Birth of a renewed mind: aligning our thoughts to God's Word and purpose for our lives
2. Standing on your square: recognizing the importance of what is required of us as we navigate life and its many distractions
3. Following Christ: our challenges and struggles should be catalysts for our spiritual growth
Today’s reading is taken from Chapter 2: Distractions, Note 2, and the perspective is Me- but this time we are looking at how personal hurts distract us and keep us bound.
Wishing you a wonderful day!
Note 2: If you would just allow yourself to stop denying how personal hurts, disappointments, and fears have bound you. Allow yourself to peel back all the layers that you call you. If you would just peel back the layers until you reach that place of childlike innocence; that level of consciousness where it is just you and God; that place where you realize you are just a spirit, a puff of vapor; here today, gone tomorrow; and He is the sovereign God, the Creator of all, including you. If you could just, this once, allow yourself to enter into His presence without any weight of the world, and for a bit of time, see the person He wants you to be rather than the flesh you run after.
If you pulled back that layer, you would begin to see how great you are, and each day you would see a little more of what God sees in you, what He had in mind before the world began. If you would just allow yourself to peel back those layers and trust God, you would soon be amazed at what was found: a person being filled with love, power, authority, and blessed with talents and spiritual gifts, all given to do His will. Your past will become less important, your heart will open, and your thoughts will desire to focus on what is really important in this life: answering God’s call and discovering and doing the purpose you were so wondrously created to do.
