Jesus, I truly…

The other day I saw a big sign on a church that read “Jesus, I truly trust in You.” I love seeing this sign and I embrace its message. I trust in the Lord and I want everything in me to declare, “Jesus, I truly trust You.” However, there are times when everything in me is saying “Jesus I truly don’t know what to do” or “Jesus, I truly want to trust You but right now I am struggling.” I am human just like anyone else and with that comes doubt and fear at times. I am learning to overcome them and to delete them from my life. One thing I know for sure is that I can’t conquer them on my own. Every I have to say “Jesus, I truly need You.” I say it when I pray in the morning. I say it a few times during the day. I am dependent on Him. I am not good enough or strong enough to make it on my own. I need Him. I have to rely on Him. I can’t live without Him. It is very humbling when we confess that we are nothing without God. When I first started saying that during prayer time, my flesh didn’t like it. My flesh would tell me that I could do a lot on my own and I had to trust that I was strong enough. I was made strong outside of God in my life and I could turn to God once I had run out of energy of my own. The truth is that without Jesus I am nothing and with Him I am someone and that someone is an overcomer. “Jesus, I truly need You and trust You” is one of my mantras and I live by it. What do you tell Jesus on a daily basis? What comes after “Jesus, I truly..”?

I am inviting you today to spend time watching what you tell the Lord. Do you rely on Him wholeheartedly? Does your “Jesus, I truly..” declaration end with words of desperation, words of hope or words of doubt? I didn’t know for the longest time that my prayers and my actions were proclaiming “Jesus, I truly am lost.” I was lost even when I thought I had been found. I was lost in myself and I couldn’t see anyone in me. The Lord was in me and He tried to get my attention a few times but I was buried in my ego and I cared about myself more than I did about the Lord. “Jesus, I am truly ok on my own” was another unconscious declaration I made. Jesus should be the center of our lives which means we should be on the periphery looking in. We shouldn’t be on the center looking out and seeing Jesus as an option among other options. He is our best option. He should be our only option. We ought to remain in Him and let Him remain in us. Once we do, we will always declare that He is all we need and we will understand that total reliance on Him is crucial. We will echo what the sign on the church said and our trust in Him will be unshaken.

Staying full of the Lord and full of His Word is a powerful way to keep trusting Him and to have strong faith in Him. When the Word of God is a big part of our lives and we study it and meditate on it, our faith skyrockets. We have to be diligent and keep at it and it produces great fruit. What I loved about the sign on the church is that it was out in the open for everyone to see. It was bold and it was strong. I want my declaration of trust in the Lord to be bold and strong. I am letting it stand in the open so that every time the enemy walks by me he can’t help but see my bold declaration. The enemy is like a lion waiting to devour us so he is always around us doing drive by’s and walk by’s and he doesn’t ever get tired. Let’s be strong and never tired to say that we truly trust in the Lord. Let our faith be heard and our hope in the Lord be visible. Our actions can show how much we trust the Lord. Let’s be the children of God who adore Jesus and who depend on Him completely. Let’s brandish a spiritual banner that reads “Jesus, we truly trust You” no matter what is going on in our lives. Let’s stay in the Word and lift up the Lord. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

God made you

God is a creator. God is an artist. Beauty is His final product. Love is the canvas that He uses to make amazing things. You are one of His creations and He used love to create you and He sees you as a beautiful final product. Now, think about how He looks at you. He looks at you with great joy and with great pleasure. He is glad He made you. He is glad you are alive. He was very pleased with you when He was extremely satisfied with His creation. He knows you are the way you were supposed to be. Why doubt and why deny His art? Why think that you should be different and you are not good enough? It is a normal way of thinking because in this world we have standards that are not God’s standards.

We think like the world and we see ourselves through the eyes of the world. We want to be like others. We compare ourselves. We believe that social media is the social norm. God is above all the selfies and all the body images that are so prevalent in this world. He made you in a way that is unique and He wants you to celebrate the person that you are. You have a personality and qualities that are from the Lord. There is a lot of good in you. There is a lot of love you. There is a lot of the world in you that is hiding the good and the love that come from the Lord. Find yourself in Jesus. Find who you are in the Lord. There is a lot of beauty in you that you might not see or that you are not aware of. Today I am here to tell you that God made you and He loves His creation. He loves you. He didn’t make a mistake when He made you. He sees the wonderful person that you are and He wants you to get on the same page. Learn who you are in Christ. Learn about the beautiful creation that is you!

“I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”* This verse is part of Psalm 139. David wrote it and he thanked God for making him the way He is. David recognized that he was a masterpiece because of who made Him. He honored God by thanking Him for making Him. Honor God, friend. Thank Him for creating you. Celebrate the Maker for His beautiful art. You are His art. You are His creation. You are His love. He loves you. He adores you. We miss out on so much when we are not in tune with God the creator and we don’t take into consideration that He made us. There are things about ourselves that we won’t like. We can find faults with ourselves easily.

Let’s focus on the Lord in us. That is beautiful. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit and we can’t reject that part of us. We can ignore it but we shouldn’t. You were made fearfully and wonderfully. Your are wonderful. You are a wonderful work of the Lord. Stop criticizing the work of the Lord. Stop putting down what God made. Stop denying the Lord in you. Start thanking God for what He did. Start seeing the beauty. Start seeing God in you. It is what you should see. It is what you need to see. God is in you and you are a blessing and a blessed one. Someone out there is longing to see the Lord in you and if you don’t like yourself, you will not let that light shine. Your beauty, your light is what someone is looking for.

Praise God because you are fearfully and wonderfully made. God took the time to create you. He didn’t make someone that is not worthy of His love. You are a work of art that is loved by God. You deserve His love and you should open yourself to it. His love will carry you. His love will get you through anything. His love will allow you to be all you can be in Him. Pray that you receive revelation about who you are in Christ and embrace the one that God made. You have so much to be grateful for and you have so much to give.

Like I said earlier, you are a blessing. God made you a blessing. You are not a curse and you are not a nuisance. You are a wonderful person that makes other people’s lives better. Don’t sell yourself short. Don’t minimize the power of the person that you are. You are a person of God whose love can heal and help others. I am so glad that the Lord made you and I thank Him for you. Stay encouraged and remember that you are a unique person whose personality and traits are a blessing. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
