The truth or reality of God's Word may not be reflected in every situation of our lives, but IT IS the truth and IT IS the highest form of reality. So how do we make God's reality our reality? By hearing it and receiving it and loving it and obeying it.
Do something with me. Go get your Bible and hold it up in the air and say this out loud:
This is my Bible. It is the Word of God, which is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. It is not man’s opinion. It is not man’s tradition. It is not subject to debate. God said it. That settles it.
I am what it says I am. I am not defined by what I struggle with, my circumstances, or by what others think or say about me. I am only defined by what God says about me in His Holy Word.
I can do what His Word says I can do. I can have what His Word says I can have. This is God’s Word and He’s speaking directly to me.
Jesus, I believe in Your love for me. I trust You completely and absolutely. Now please use my life for Your glory.
In Jesus name. Amen!
Now go be who you were called to be!
