Sometimes, the one who doesn’t discern my value, is me. I know this, because I know me better than anyone with skin wrapped around a spirit. I beat myself up, ya know? I can be harsh and critical to myself when I most need to love myself. I see how flawed I am, every imperfection… Whether I choose to accept this, or not, this is pride. To think I should be something other than I am right now, when God has fully equipped me for this day. Every task at hand, is in His Hand. He sees what I cannot. He knows what I could not comprehend.
So I humble myself, and submit these things before God. Part of
“Be.”is acknowledging what I am, and seeing the contrast between who He says I am. The Spirit of the Living God lives in me, and I must decrease, that He may increase.
So, today I remind myself of Philippians 2:12-16.
“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.”
And, not to beat up, but to build up myself in He Alone that is Able.
Thank You, Jesus!
