I love Jesus so much. I truly get overwhelmed with emotion when I think about all that He’s given me. He’s rescued me from. Taught me. Shown me. But most of all, I love Him because of who He is and who I am because of who He is.
I didn’t grow up knowing God. It wasn’t until almost my 30s did I truly start desiring a life with Him. Even still I had no idea who Jesus really was.
Until the day I said out loud “I don’t even know who Jesus is” I can remember where I stood in my back yard. As if God had made sure to take a snapshot of the day His baby girl was ready to know Him and Herself.
To say getting to know Jesus was easy would be a lie. Romans 7 talks about the battle we have with our flesh and our Spirit and this battle happens witjin our mind. Unfortunately for me, and I’m assuming most, it bled out through my actions. I was so double minded holding on to my flesh and having such an agonizing death of it.
It took almost 3 years to truly die to MYSELF, 3 years after confessing the sin of unbelief.
My mind was always mine to take hold of. The mind of Christ is ours, it’s our PROMISE LAND. We’ve just got to believe in the PROMISES He’s given us.
Today, I rejoice in those horrendous years. Without them I wouldn’t know the beauty that I possess today. Knowing who I AM, knowing who Jesus is, is truly the sweetest gift God can give us.
The Promise land is ours for the taking. And today I pray if you struggle with unbelief in any area you confess and begin the process of coming to know Him as He truly is, GOD. And knowing who you are in HIM, ONE.
