The Ability To Believe
Who we believe we are is who we will become. All of life's rich experiences are moments that have the ability to draw us into a deeper way we believe and frame who we are.
The way we interpret those moments will shape both how we see ourselves and our indentity. It is so very easy for us get a warped perception of life and who we really are by clinging on to how we live and react when those moments come.
No one's identity is completely fixed. We like to think that that is not the case, but each of us has the ability to alter our perception, the power to change and more importantly the ability to plant new beliefs and root up old, damaging beliefs. We have the capacity to grow as we live and experience new things within us.
But with this also comes the ability to believe we are something we are not. So on any given day, like a jelly left out in the sunshine, we can alter our belief system and change for the better or worse.
God through the Holy Spirit has given us the opportunity to tap into the resurrection power of Christ within us. Our flexible hearts of who we are can be changed from one degree of glory to another degree of glory. In Christ we are immersed into the river of God's love and delight.
Christ's desire is so abundantly passionate that his heart is that we align our hearts with his finished work at the cross and identify with Him in every experience of life.
This is not impossible because the Holy Spirit is within cascading through us bringing the truth of Christ alive in us. All we have to do is tune into his voice and his gentle nudge.
The world will try to fill our minds with worldly wisdom and a negative perception of life. It will try to diminish your value and promote fear and anxiety. But God has now in Christ NOT given you a spirit of fear, but a new Spirit of power and love and a sound mind .
The loving encouragement of God is that you find your delight in him, you find your purpose in his love for you and you excel in your heart by believing and experiencing his grace alive in you.
Christ in you has the ability and power to change your belief system so that you know and experience the love and power of the Holy Spirit in every golden moment of life.
