How do you see yourself?

Wait. . .don’t answer that.

Too many people, especially Christians get down on themselves because they’re not looking at themselves through the mirror of God.

We don’t generally see ourselves the way He sees us.

We should never let our friends or society label us. . .instead we need to find out what the Word of God says about us.

Let’s talk about how God sees you. And then believe He means what He says.

1 Peter 2:9-10 in the Amplified Bible says:

Can you imagine how Moses must have felt?

The first time he tried to help his people he ended up on the backside of the desert.

Talk about discouragement . . .Moses had every reason to be discouraged.

He was going to change the world! He was going to create a better environment for his people!  He was going to make a difference!  But instead he was rejected by his people. . .exiled from power and lost his position of prominence.

Life as Moses had known it . . .was over.

The first 40 years of his life, Moses had been somebody.

For the next forty years of his life, he was a nobody.

Have you ever been really pumped up on Sunday morning only to fall short by Tuesday afternoon?

Have you ever experienced a sudden burst of faith during a thought-provoking sermon only to fizzle out at the first sign of adversity?

A lack of consistency can cause your faith to dwindle and your hopes to sag.

Often people refer to this as being double minded.

James 1:8 says:

“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

In his New Testament letter, the Apostle James uses the term double-minded twice.  One in James 1:4 and again in James 4:8.

According to Strong’s Concordance the Greek word for double-minded is G1374 and it means:

“double-minded, wavering, uncertain, doubting, divided in interest”

Never let your circumstances define your destiny.  Rather create the circumstances that will assure your destiny.
