Change your perspective. The words came quickly. Was it God speaking to my heart? I can only imagine. Who else would give me such awesome and perfectly timed wisdom? I needed the words. I needed the message. I couldn’t help but think you might need it also. Do you?
How often do we who believe in and faithfully follow Jesus as Lord see ourselves as losers, failures, hopeless, insignificant, meaningless, purposeless, forsaken, messed up, incapable of doing what God has called us to do on this earth? When God loves us so much He sent His only Son Jesus to the cross to die to pay our sin penalty and to raise Him from the dead? When we as Jesus’ followers who have turned from our sins and devoted our lives to the Lord have the Holy Spirit living right inside us? When we have been forgiven and given a personal forever relationship with the Lord? When we have the Bible, God’s very own Word, to read and live by? When we are part of the worldwide family of God’s followers whereby we can love, encourage, pray for, help, teach, and support one another in following Jesus?
Even as I write this, I am so encouraged! Are you? See, as I was writing, I shifted my focus to the Lord and the truth about Him and those who belong to Him. I changed my perspective. And in Christ and the truth I rejoice.
