Who Are You Really?

A wise man once said, “When you know who you are, you know who you aren’t.” I couldn’t agree any more.

Too often we walk around wearing a mask and conforming who we are to those around us. We lower our standards to fit in. We try too hard to be like someone else. And we end up forgetting what the bible says we are.

The bible says that you are more than a conqueror. It says that you’re a victor and not a victim. It says that you can do all things through Christ.

If you focus on doing what’s right and try to be all that God says you can be, then I believe you’ll rise higher in life. Don’t conform your standards to be like the next man – no be who God says you are.

If the world chooses to go left and God says that you should go right, take that bold step and take the God route today. If the world tells you that you shouldn’t smile no one will take you serious, smile anyway. God says to spread your light and let no one steal your joy.

You see, the bible says that you are the head and not the tail. You are above and not beneath. And just like today’s quote points out, because you know that you have the favor of God then you know that you’re not a failure. You know that you’re blessed and not cursed.

If you’ll remember who you are today, then you won’t fall into the trap of being someone that you’re not. Don’t conform to that of the world. Constantly reform yourself to be the person God wants you to be as you charge forth on your journey of life!

    I was at an Osho meditation meeting today, and Osho told me my purpose in life was “To awaken others to realize that they are at home where they are and that everything they need is right in front of them.” Then I come home and read this. :)
