Many people struggle to find confidence, assertiveness and fulfillment in this life, until we gain our identity and esteem through Christ in us (Colossians 1:27).
Jesus Christ is sovereign over this earth and heaven too. He wants to be our Savior, Lord, King and best friend. He gave His life to pay the ransom for our life (Matthew 20:28).
Once we totally surrender our entire life to Jesus, we have fewer trials and we find in Him our only true source of power, love and peace of mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
We trust in His Truth and realize that God’s Spirit is transforming our flawed human nature into Christ’s divine nature (2 Peter 1:4; 2 Corinthians 3:18). We belong to our beloved Savior and He belongs to us (Song of Solomon 6:3).
Jesus is our safe harbor and anchor in every type of trial or tribulation. He is our light in the darkness, rest for our weary soul and wisdom, which provides us with skill for living.
He is our Bread of Life to relieve our hunger (John 6:35). The Living Water to quench our thirst (John 4:14). The Tree of Life to pay for our sins (Revelation 22:2). The Alpha and Omega to provide for all of our needs (Revelation 22:13).
His grace is our sufficiency (2 Corinthians 12:9). His love warms our heart, His rest quiets our mind and His peace envelops us with a stress-free life.
Father God, Your Son existed before creation and He now holds all things together. He is our all in all (Colossians 1:17; Ephesians 4:6). We are content in His presence in our life.
You prepared Jesus as the sacrifice for our sins before You ever created the world (1 Peter 1:20), because You already know the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). You are forming us into the image of Christ, incorporating us into His Body, and perfecting us into His flawless Bride (2 Corinthians 3:18; Romans 12:5; Ephesians 5:24).
Thought for the Day:
We are risen in Christ, who is our Savior, and who gives us complete salvation, complete forgiveness and complete victory, because we are complete in Him.
– Colossians 2:10; 3:1
