HOW YOU CAN DEAL WITH IT

We have examined how the issues in our lives can cause damage if we fail to confront them. They can leave a stain on our witness as believers. Low self esteem can make us live as beggars when our Heavenly father calls us kings (Revelation 1:5). We can lose self control when thoughts of sex dominate our minds.

God never expects us to deal with the challenges in our lives with our natural ability. When God looks at you, He doesnít see you through your natural qualification, past or present circumstances. He sees you through Christís redemptive work for you at the cross. When Jesus died at the cross, the old you died. The old you that was ruled by the sinful nature died. The old you that was poor died. The old you that was worn out by sickness died. When Christ rose from the grave, the new you rose. (Colossians 2:10-13).

The new you has authority to shut the door when temptation comes knocking, Romans 6:14. The new you has access to unlimited resources, 2 Corinthians 8:9, Philippians 4:19. The new you deserves to enjoy sound health because the life of God flows through your body, Romans 8:11, 1 Peter 2:24.

Know that your status has changed. Once Satan can make us believe we are still the person we were before we met Christ, he will keep us in bondage. We will continue to steal to survive because we believe we are still poor. We will keep putting up with that sickness because we believe it still runs in our family.

Who you are is not what your past, circumstances or habits call you. Who you are is who God says you are.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
