Anytime we forget who we are, we will always be in trouble wherever we’re at.  The Bible tells us that we “are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of His own” (1 Peter 2:9).  We should always deem what the Bible says about our identity as greater than anything we think, or have thought, about ourselves.  Remember, one is based upon truth (God’s Word), the other on lies (the world).

Identity determines everything.  The common denominator of every decision we make, whether good or bad, is our identity.  Every moment of stupid within my life is the revelation that I allowed my identity to get stolen.  Every moment of failure within my life is the evidence that I allowed my identity to be forgotten.  Identity is everything.

There are just some things in our lives that we can never change in and of ourselves.  Some things require others to play a part.  “You’ll never succeed in life if you try to hide your sins” (Proverbs 28:13).  Many of our healings will be discovered in the revealing of our feelings.

“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us:
–          what is right
–          what is not right
–          how to get right
–          how to stay right
It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Behind every self-defeating act is a lie you have chosen to believe.  Thus, if we are going to stop defeating ourselves, then we must stop deceiving ourselves.  For that to happen, we need to learn the truth about ourselves.  And we do that by being in God’s Word.  “There must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and your attitudes” (Ephesians 4:23).

Change is awkward – but so was my first kiss, and that didn’t stop me from doing it.  Therefore, just because change feels weird, it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily wrong.  I will tell you this: the person who insists on using yesterday’s methods in today’s world won’t be in business tomorrow.

Have you ever heard the words, “you’ve given me a lot to think about”?  God’s truth was not written to merely mull over, but to obey.  “Those who look closely into the perfect law that sets people free, who keep on paying attention to it and do not simply listen and then forget it, but put it into practice – they will be blessed by God in what they do” (James 1:25).  When God writes something – you can trust completely.

To live differently, you have to think differently.  And to think differently, you have to make the deliberate, daily choice, to change.  Like a circus trapeze artist, it’s required to let go of one bar to get to the other.  Just remember, intentions without actions always lead to nothing.

Our society is full of plastic buildings on the foundation of false hopes.  We live in a day of shortcuts, loopholes, and ‘one more for the road,’ as we look for an exit to escape reality.  We’re never successful until we know what’s right, and then make the choice to do it.

“If your career, marriage, job, and life are to improve, you must change.  In the mirror you are looking at the problem and the solution.  The people who reach their potential no matter what their background or profession think in terms of improvement” (Julio Melara).

Most people would rather change their circumstances to improve their lives rather than change their lives, which ultimately improves their circumstances.  It’s crazy, but we often think about changing the world, just not ourselves – but true lasting change is always an inside job.

The only growth limitations that we have lie within ourselves. Growth is an inside job – how we embrace the lessons that lie before us and around us. Every situation, no matter how difficult or even seemingly boring, is a classroom in which we can learn and grow. CHOOSE to be a learner. Embrace every opportunity – it’s always a win.

God is the only One I know who can change the human heart. Government can’t, money won’t, and ideal circumstances don’t. Only God can. Without Him, our efforts will be futile at best. “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain” (Psalm 127:1).

“Attempt something so impossible that unless God is in it, it’s doomed to failure” (John Haggai). Our dreams should always be beyond our abilities, but never beyond His. The greatest joy is being a part of what only God can do. So step up, step out, and witness His greatest.
