We are becoming what we are beholding. It’s important that we give attention to what we are giving attention to or as someone put it “think about what you are thinking about”. What are you gazing at? What pictures are in your heart?
The pictures; the images within are creating the manifestations on the outside.
God gave us His word to reveal our REALITY not just our potential. When we look into the Word we must see ourselves as we TRULY are (present tense) and we must learn to define ourselves by what we SEE in the word alone.
Stop focusing on what you think is not right with you and see what God has said about you. STOP focusing on flaws, failures, setbacks, delays, betrayals, hurts, pain, limitations rather focus on who you are in Him and you will see your life move in that direction.
God says you are blessed, highly favoured, lifted, righteous, victorious, prosperous, sanctified, holy, graced, forgiven, beloved… Don’t let anyone or any experience paint a different picture on the canvas of your heart. Gaze on Jesus, the One who paid in full so that you may live a FULL LIFE even in the emptiest of places! Keep your gaze on Jesus and your heart will be full of the right images.
