Actually our Ladies Bible Study class has taken this book on as our study at this time. I find it very interesting that 2 home groups have "sprung up" to join us in this venture! Ummmm...
I highly recommend this as an excellent read!!!!
Beth tells us, at one point, that most of us have what she calls a "false positive"... something that we think would make us more secure in all things if we attained it! As I read this I began to reflect on what my "false positives" might be...
Here are some examples from the book:
- Financial success / Popularity / Education / A great man / Children / The perfect job / Losing 50 pounds ... would make me more secure.
Does this have you thinking? I hope so. Take a moment and write down what you perceive as your own false positives.
Then KNOW this ... nothing on this earth has the power to make us secure ... our security comes from Christ in us! Hallelujah!
Romans 8:1 - Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Colossians 3:3 - For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
1 John 5:18 - We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him.
2 Timothy 1:7 - for God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
KNOWING - BELIEVING - CLAIMING - TRUSTING - God's Word for our identity gives us security.... I'm not saying that those false positives won't creep in - cuz they will. We have an enemy that wants to destroy us so he will use whatever tactic he can to bring us down. We need to be alert to him and have our hearts and minds filled with Christ - then and only then can we walk in security and confidence of who we are!
Dear Sweet Sisters and Brothers in Christ ... I pray today that you will KNOW who you are; that your security will rest in Him alone and not in any earthly thing. May Your hearts be strengthened by His Word filling it to overflowing!
Blessings Dear Ones ..........
