Happy New Year! I’ve been quiet. I’ve been recovering from surgery. I’m up and about so I’ll be back to give you a post once a month.
Ephesians 3:20 states “ Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” I was at a doctor’s appointment in December. I was having a conversation on a spiritual note about Christ. This person stated “know who you are”. As they continued to talk they expressed that we all are sinners, but once you accept God. You are no longer a sinner. You are a child of God. They stated “don’t use you was once a sinner when you sin or make a mistake as a crutch because you sinned.” As they continued to go on explaining this got me thinking. How many Christians or people on this earth don’t know who they are?
The scripture God has given me this year is Ephesians 3:20. How do these comes into play? If you don’t know who you are in Christ, the Holy Bible is the word of God that he has given unto us. How do you know you have these promises? If you don’t know you have these promises then you can’t proclaim these promises. Someone said it’s there in the Bible, because I just told you. Again, I stated “know who you are”; I wouldn’t have to tell you if you know. An example we all have experienced someone with a body odor. Who cannot smell themselves, that person don’t know the truth concerning their body odor. If you tell them the truth with love then he or she will know they have a body odor. Most of all they can accept it. This way they can accept the truth. If they can’t receive the truth, they can’t accept the promises.
The promise of God comes in truth. Truth is defined as the true or actual state of a matter or conformity with fact or reality; verity. If and when you face reality or the actual matter at hand, only then will you know who you are. You know you can take anything that is faced at you, because to know who you are you must deal in truth.
