Morning Coffee 4/21/14 Who Are You?
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:7 NLT)
Do you know who you are? Do you know who God called you to be? Do you the gifts ability's and anointing he has placed in you? God is bringing me into a season of knowing who i am in him. I can think of so many situations in the past where there was a challenge before me and i would back down from it because i did not believe God had given me the ability to rise to the challenge. The problem was that i was relying on my five senses. i was allowing what i saw, heard, or felt to determine if i could complete the challenge. But all along God had given me the Power to succeed.
God has called us to walk a path and on that path and on that path will be obstacles. We have to remember that "The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure." (1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT) When we operate in the spirit and power of God we are unstoppable. Even if you fail and give into temptation God is there with his grace and mercy, urging us forward to get up repent and continue the work he has set for us to accomplish. But we can only move forward under his power not our own (John 15:5 NLT) So put on the full armor of God (read Ephesians 6:10-18) Use the morning to get your mind and spirit focused on God. Don't go by what you see in the physical, go by what God has placed in you. You are so much more than what you see in the mirror.
Much Love & God Bless
