“If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.”
“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.”
Today, allow your emotions to be influenced by the Spirit of life. Allow yourself to hear words of affirmation from your Heavenly Father. Pause and take a moment to ask this question: "Father, what good things do you want to say about me today?" Journal and reflect on what you hear. As you declare this, I believe you will experience what it means to be a new creation:
Today, I believe that my emotions are being affected by God’s love and grace. I put my emotions under the influence of unconditional love. I receive love. I allow love to go into my past and restructure false conclusions I have made about myself because of things that happened to me or things I did. I allow love to cover my sins and restore my true identity.
Because I am a new creation and resurrected with Christ, I am full of hope and joy. There is no shame or guilt connected to this new creation. His mercies are new every morning. I am not my past or my actions. My identity is in the part of me that lives forever – which is the spirit. I rest in my new identity and there is no striving with it. My true self is at peace with God and man. I relate to God and others from my new resurrected identity, not from my old identity. I am under the blessing of Christ which is a spiritual force working for my good.
The beauty of the Spirit of God shines and emanates from me. It makes me beautiful and altogether lovely. I am lovable. People see me and are drawn to the beauty of my spirit that is one with Christ.
Blessings on your journey,
