God wants me to believe I'm always..."this" even on the days I still feel like "that". How do I keep from feeling like "that"? Constantly being in His word & growing in my relationship with Him keeps me from feeling like "that". When I believe I'm "this" I make good decisions & walk in Him daily.
When I come to a crossroad of decision I think "I still feel like "that", but God says I'm "this". How would "this" behave in this situation? Over time my habits & actions began to change & I started behaving more like "this". After all..."this" is who I am.
"This" is who you are also my friend. You belong to Him...tell "that" you are "this" now.
I have this little Devo Book by Beth Moore that takes about 2 minutes to read each morning & it feeds my heart like you wouldn't believe. Today she talked about "this & that" & it made me really think about how I let "that" former life affect me still, I pray that I begin to live daily "this" life God has called me to live & let go of "that" for good.
Now He has reconciled you by His physical body through His death
to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before Him.
