The systems of the world are designed to take our confidence and destroy how we view our gifts, talents and abilities. The world system says, “If you’re not rich, you’re not worth anything.” The world system tells us, particularly women, “If you’re not stick figure thin, you’re not beautiful.”
God placed greatness in us when he created us. He put hopes and dreams in our hearts and minds from the beginning. Many of us, including me, have put our dreams on hold and ignored our passions and gifts because we have believed what the world says about us. God has given us everything we need to do everything he has asked us to do. The question is, are we ready to change your believe system?
Changing our believe system to being God center instead of world center is more difficult than it sounds. We have been programmed by the world to see, hear and understand everything in our lives by their standards, ethics and morals. We have to allow God’s word to renew our minds Once we start renewing our minds in God’s word, we’ll come to understand that God put everything in us we need to fulfill our destiny in him every day.
Challenge: Get up every morning and tell yourself, “I have what it takes. No matter what God asks me to do today, I am the right person for the job.”
Lord please help me to see my gifts, talents and abilities the way you see them. Help me to lean on you; the author, perfecter and finisher of my faith, and not on my own understanding. Help me to understand the great power you placed in me at the time I accepted your son as my Savior. This power allows me to be self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.
Lord, renew my mind so I believe that nothing is too difficult for you to perform through me. You are my strength and my shield. Thank you Lord! In Jesus’ name Amen.
