WORDS OF WISDOM NEWSLETTER
SEE YORSELF THE WAY GOD SEES YOU
First, I give honor to my Lord, Jesus the Christ. The great I am that I am. As I start this month’s newsletter, I can boldly say that I am what I am because of God’s Grace.
This month of May, we are starting a new teaching entitled: “See Yourself the Way God Sees You.” I have learned from a child growing up, that our opinion of ourselves is deeply affected by the opinions of what others think and say about you. I have also learned that if all you hear from the people who are supposed to be your role model, negative things; it can affect your self-worth.
However, I have good news for us today. Regardless of what you have been through in life and the mistakes you have made, God will help you to realize who you are in Him and what His Grace has done for you. In the book of 2 Corinthians 5:17 it tells us; Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
When you accept Jesus as your Savior, you the spirit is re-born, renewed. It can never get any better, but your mind and body stays the same. And, for us to see ourselves the way God sees us, we have to let God transform us into a new person by changing the way we think.
We can do this by the renewing of our mind by the Word of God. When you study the Word of God, it is beginning a transforming process in how we think about ourselves. In this transforming process, we are learning God’s will for our lives, which is good, pleasing and perfect according to Romans 12:1-2.
When you allow your mind to be transformed by God’s Word, it will change your Self-perception. I have learned by the Grace of God, that when you mature in God’s Word, you will learn how to walk in the light of your new self-image.
God will help you realize who you are according to His Word, and you will begin to see yourself the way He sees you. However, let me again emphasize, it is a process. When you understand God’s Grace, His unearned, undeserved, unfailing favor towards you, it will profoundly change how you feel about yourself.
Let me encourage you in closing; to learn who God says you are, see yourself the way God sees you, apply His principles to your life, and I guarantee you that your life will never be the same.
Mennie and I see you the way that you have allowed God to see you. You are being an extension of His hand with your love, prayers and partnership of this outreach ministry. We together are helping the under-privileged and making a difference in the Kingdom of God. Because of your generosity and support, I believe and know from the Word of God that you will continue to Be Blessed To Be A Blessing. (Luke 6:38)
In His Will,
