Philippians 3:9 New International Version (NIV)
9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.
CHOOSING TO BELIEVE ~
I am found in God, I am a new person
2 Corinthians 5:20-21 New International Version (NIV)
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
It is important to see that Jesus paid the price for your life. You have another chance to do somethings over and ask forgiveness of sin. A new beginning is needed by each of us. Turning your life over to Jesus is seeing things through his eyes. We take on his character and allow him to use our lives. We can take all of our mess ups and find victory in God. Keep in mind that some people might never forgive you or say harsh words about you. There were a few people who spoke negative words about my life. Those words can come back but I have a choice to throw the words them away. Some words are not the truth about us and we must just know that.
Choosing to believe is a daily choice given by God. He purposes that we have free will and a sound mind. Romans 12:1-2 becomes a lifestyle for me. Renew your mind, set your mind on what God says about you and learn not to your own understanding. Choices to know that God is able to handle your life just fine and you just lean on the truth (God's ways).
Last night I was leading a women's study about the Full Armor of God. The room had women of all ages and in their walk with God at different points. Some just beginning and others who have serve the Lord for a long time. It isn't about your age, whether your in your 20, 30, 40 or more. It's about your today with God and what will you do with it? It's about your surrender to God's plan and what you do with it? It's about your life and God has purpose you to be here. He has brought you to this page today to read it and plant hope in a new day. God opens our understanding to choose him!
God wants us to live in freedom my friends. Freedom of the past, the present and the future. Jeremiah 29:11 states he has a plan, a promise and a future. Let us learn to live in that free choice of him and learn quickly of his ways. Your life makes a difference and there is someone who watches your life. Make sure your the best you and live according to his word (Bible).
Believe in yourself too and become unstoppable with God. God and you make a good team and life changes as we pray. Prayer changes you and that changes your voice of how you handle things too. Let God lead the way and follow with trust, love and obedience. My life changed when I changed my mindset to positive and know that God has my life in his hands. Stir up your faith and press forward.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
