Do you really know who you are? When asked, who are you, can you truly identify yourself?
Until we are comfortable with others, we walk around as a representative. Someone we partially are. The careful self. Once we’re comfortable, the not-so careful self appears. The person you think you really are. But still, not all of you.
It’s time to take off the extra layer of self, and let God introduce you to yourself. You’ve been walking around with you for years, and you still don’t know you. God knows who you are. But, you don’t. Really. . .you don’t. We think we know ourselves. We even make the statement, “I know who I am” or ” I know me”. But do you?
The Bible says, we should examine ourselves, but most of us don’t care to do that. When we examine ourselves, God reveals to us, that which does not belong within us, like jealousy, procrastination, lack of patience, Mr. or Mrs. know-it-all. Psalms 139: 23-24 (KJV) – Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. When you speak this to our Father, He will reveal to you the things that do not belong in you. But, you have to make the decision to do something about your revelation. We will live our whole life, and never know all of who we really are, if we don’t let God in, and do what only He can do.
Read Psalms 139: 23-24, and watch our Father peel away the layers of self. The longer you hide behind yourself, the longer it will take to reveal the true you, your gifts, your talents, and your purpose, which is not for you, but for the glory of God.
Let God bless you exceeding abundantly more than you could ever think or imagine!
