April Monthly Script-Time
As we try and cope with our new norm living, working from home, losing our jobs, having to care for sick/dying people or trying hard to keep the shelves stocked at home and in the supermarkets.
We tend to reflect on life and where we are! Soooo….who are you in the midst of all this? when your work has been taken away, your income has been taken away and your freedom has been taken away!
Who are you and what is your identity? which leads me onto this months Script-Time
1 Peter 2:9 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
What is your personal reflection of this passage? read the passage again slowly and hear what it is saying to you
Wow how amazing it is to recieve this Gift from God of Identity? When we look at the basic of what it means to be a Christian/ follower of Christ it is to receive a new identity.
Lets be clear that in Jesus, we do not lose our true selves, but we become our true selves, which is only found in him.
New Belonging in Jesus Christ is our life — not only the guarantee of it in heaven, but the downpayment of it by the Spirit now, as he lives in us. His joy becomes our joy; his love, our love; his peace, our peace; his strength, our strength.
Ephesians 1:5 5 he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—
Citizens of Heaven In Christ- We have been born again for another world, to a greater kind of existence.
What are your personal actions for this new season, what has God said to you personally through this scripture?
Do you need to speak truth over yourself daily using Gods words, that you are fearfully and wondefully made. Postive affirmations are so powerful, and what we speak becomes life, so make sure its always postive words you say about yourself.
Each of us have our own silent battles, and lies that we beleive about ourselves. Ask God to show you what you need to do, take time and really listen to what you hear. Then follow it through!
Whatever you need to do, do it!
Now Send up your own personal prayer…. Spend some time talking to your Heavenly Father.
Father When I forget my name, remind me that I called by your name! You have called and chosen me, you are my father and my identy is in you, it is not in man’s oionion of me, no in the job or car I drive.
Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.
Praise’s Go Up Blessing’s Come Down
