Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
–Philippians 4:7 NLT
Whatever you believe about yourself is the image you will portray to others. Some are better at hiding how they really feel, but God sees through the mask. He doesn’t want you to be fake anymore. God wants you to believe bigger and decide that, in and through Him, you’ll have more than ever before.
Author Mark Batterson wrote, “God wants to take you places you’ve never been before. If you want God to do something new in your life, you can’t do the same old thing. It will involve more sacrifice, but if you are willing to go there, you’ll realize you didn’t sacrifice anything at all. It will involve more risk, but if you are willing to go there, you’ll realize that you didn’t risk anything at all.”
What do you believe about yourself? Do you believe the best or the worst? Is there something more God wants for you? Spend some extra time with Him; ask Him what He wants for your life. Take hold of these things and believe them for yourself!
- Ask God to help you see yourself as He sees you.
- Pray that a seed would be planted in you to believe big!
