I want to ask you a very personal but very important question this morning.
How do you see yourself?
Your answer to this question will determine the success and quality of your life.
The truth is that we are designed in such a way that what we think determines much in our lives.
If we see ourselves as losers we will not succeed.
But if we see ourselves as winners we are far more likely to succeed in what we are trying to do.
The Word of God tells us that what we are is determined by what we think (Proverbs 23 v 7), and it is therefore vital that as a born again believer to think about ourselves in line with what God thinks.
God says we are righteous, so we must think of ourselves as being righteous.
This will result in us ‘performing’ more righteous acts; remember as a man thinketh so is he.
If we think of ourselves as sinners we are more likely to sin, remember as a man thinketh so is he.
You may be thinking but I still sin, well that is true for all of us.
But that does not make us a sinner, we are now new creatures, made new, and in our spirits we are as righteous as God (2 Corinthians 5 v 21).
So how do you see yourself this morning, as a sinner or as a righteous saint, holy and pure and perfect?
The answer to that question will determine how you act in this life!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that right now I am righteous, and I am a saint”.
Proverbs 23 v 7…..For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee
