BE TRUE TO THYSELF…PT 3
Hey… Great Champions,
What a wonderful Wednesday to behold!
Let me start by thanking everyone who sent in emails on Facebook, yahoo and other platforms especially as related to the “be true ti thyself ” series. I am glad that you are propelled by my discuss to work on yourself but hey, we ain’t done yet………………..
Be true to thyself……..there is a huge measure of vulnerability that comes with genuine self examination. You realize all of a sudden how very wrong you have been or how misaligned you have been and also realize that along the way you have negatively impacted on people. The reality of all of these can really be crushing depending how self deceived you were………………
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates.”—2 Corinthians 13:5.
examining one’s self is indicative that there is a need to pay utmost attention or introspective consideration of one’s thoughts,views and emotions…… Proving your own selves implies subjection to objective assessments. here is another quote i really like;
“For the wise have always known that no one can make much of his life until self-searching has become a regular habit, until he is able to admit and accept what he finds, and until he patiently and persistently tries to correct what is wrong. – Bill W.”
the Big question is how do I truly examine myself in a truly objective that calls for a true correction or better realignment????
The Good news is that it does not have to stay that way. you dont have to be blind any longer. you dont have to miss the mark beyond this very hour…..
A Man of God that I have utmost regards for said to me (as well 3,000 other people in service…lol) that if you ever wanted to know anything and everything about a product, the wisest thing to do is to refer to the producer of the product by way of the product manual! so if i wanted to know about my laptop (my handy companion), I definitely wont be asking my laptop or be trouble shooting and just stumbling around the processes….No….I will be going through the product manual to understand fully what and how my laptop is designed to function optimally!!!!! In the same way, my friend, there is absolutely NO way that you can see your self in the way that you are if you dont refer to the Producer or Creator of the product called you……Allow me to introduce yet again to you…..GOD!
Oh yes, Only God can show you who you are. His WORD and the entrance of His Spirit will reveal to you the very you! Understand that your limited mind lacks the capacity to analyze your own self in a thoroughly objective manner for its only God in all knowing nature that can show yourself to you…….recall, in the Bible, the blind Man that Jesus healed by putting a mixture of spittle and sand in his eye and then directing him to go to wash in the river………………too many of us are blind to our idiosyncrasies and shortcomings…too many of us are living in a fools paradise….too many of us are blind to see that we have been on the wrong path for too long….blind to how we hurt the very same people we love…blind to how we are stagnating our own careers….BLIND!………HMMMMMMMMMM……
I dare you to wash your blind eyes with the water of His WORD….to stay under His word so that His spirit can reveal you to yourself and by His Grace you can have the experience of stripping yourself of every form of deception and blindness. Champ, this may not be your everyday blogger…..but this is the truth that You should know…..
have an awesome day as you keep walking the Pathway of Champions
