You are what you think 8

Do you ever feel like you just don’t belong? As a young girl and teenager, I remember crying and asking my mom if I was actually an alien or if I looked funny or different than other people. I would wonder if I was really a hideous freak and just seeing a normal person looking back at me in the mirror. ~John 15:19 (NIV) says, “If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.”~ I certainly had no idea what God was doing. I always thought that I was the problem and that I could never do anything right. It took a while, a long, long while, but now I know that I am the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus. ~2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV) says, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”~

I have found, since I have gotten older, that we all have ‘oh yeah!’ moments. You will find them when you have prayed and let God help you with your problems and offenses and soul wounds. I would say that it usually only happens at the point in life when you can learn something from it instead of getting bitter, angry, or sad when you think about it. At some point, all of the built up anxiety, anger, and rage will get so old that you just finally give it to God… and He will take all that pain from you… and you WILL become FREE. It is necessary to let God heal the soul wounds from your past, so you can get dominion over the lies and bondage of the devil. He just loves reminding you of all your failures, mistakes, and problems, but remember that God doesn’t expect us to be perfect. That’s why Jesus came. Otherwise, we wouldn’t need a savior, healer, or redeemer. Remind the enemy who your God is. And, remind him that you have read the end of the Book- and God wins. We are not expected to be perfect; we are made perfect through Christ. ~2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”~
