When I started this blog I wanted it to be a Bible Study where the focus was on what the scriptures say about who God is. I wanted to grow in knowing who He is, what He likes and doesn’t and to not always read picking out the things that made me feel good or benefits I have in my relationship with Him.
I have decided to deviate for a bit after the journey I have been on this past few months in Beth Moore’s study, Breaking Free. I have done her study, Believing God, twice and it impacted my life in mighty ways. I realized that I had major trust issues and it would come down to whether I would believe God is who He says He is and can do what He says He can do or not. After the Breaking Free study God made me aware I need to believe Him for who He says I am. That was the third focus of the Believing God study. So here I am today embarking on another journey of sorts to search out the scripture to see what He says. In learning who He says I am I know I will grow in knowing Him too.
After Googling who God says I am (don’t you love Google!) I pulled three lists of scriptures from Joyce Meyer, Open Bible and Bible.org. I will be taking scriptures at random from these lists and some from Beth’s Breaking Free and even some I find on my own in an effort not to just know who He says I am but to start believing Him and living like that person. I hope you will come along too! Let’s get started
“They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” Isaiah 61: 3b
Dear Lord, thank you for this picture of who you say I am. I think of a towering oak with roots growing deep that can withstand the storms and heat and cold that come its way. You say I am planted by you to be a display or your splendor. Lord you know I often don’t feel like that Oak let alone a display of your splendor? Today I choose to believe I am who you say I am. Today I desire to allow the storms of my life to send my roots deeper into you and your truth instead of the enemies lies. Today Lord display your splendor through me to all I come in contact with. It is my heart’s desire to be who you say I am. May your truth sink deep into my heart and mind as I trust in your truth.
Ask yourself the question, “Who am I?’ Does it align with who God says you are? If not join me on this journey and share with me the scriptures you find that will help us live our lives as a display of His splendor! I am praying for us both to have the freedom He wants us to have. Blessings my dear friends! Have a great day!
