CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE: SEE YOURSELF AS GOD SEES YOU
Perspective simply means a particular way of thinking, seeing or considering something. Our perspective in life is very important because it influences our beliefs, actions and experiences, to a great extent. So it matters how we reason and see things because it will determine the kind of results we have in life.
Reference: Exodus 4:11-13 Berean Study Bible (BSB) 'And the LORD said to him, "Who gave man his mouth? Or who makes him mute or deaf, sighted or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now go! I will help you as you speak, and I will teach you what to say." But Moses replied, "Please, Lord, send someone else."'
One of the major tactics of the enemy is to keep you far from finding out who you really are in Christ and from functioning in your position of authority. As long as you think you're not worthy or good enough, that's a wrong perspective and the devil will have a great day around you. But as soon as you get a revelation of who you really are and start seeing yourself that way, your days of limitations and mediocre mindset will be over and the devil is in trouble. Why? Because the most powerful person on earth is that Christian that knows who he/she is in Christ.
Understand this truth: the very moment you became born again, God made you a champion, more than a conqueror in Christ. You completely became a new creation because your spirit was recreated. Now, there's a huge difference between who you were before, and who you are after you received Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). The person before had the sinful nature, therefore he sinned at will. But that person is dead! Right now, you're a brand new person because the new creature has no past. When you understand this and know who you really are in Christ, such statement as, 'When I used to do…' or 'I'm not good enough' or 'I can't achieve this…' will completely leave your vocabulary because it's no longer you.
Moses didn't initially see himself as God saw him, as the deliverer of God's people. In fact, Moses angered the Lord when he asked Him to send someone else. Moses' refusal to see himself as God saw him didn't go without a hitch. God had to appoint Aaron to support Moses (Exodus 4:14 NIV), which of course, caused trouble later on. However, the moment Moses began to see himself as who God had really made him to be, he took his place in God's plan and excelled as a great leader of God’s people.
Refuse to minimise the impact of the divine nature and eternal life in you. You are a superbeing in Christ. Therefore, don't ever let the enemy's tactics keep you in bondage one more day. Start seeing and talking differently! You are well able to do everything God has called you to do and accomplish great tasks (Philippians 4:13 NKJV), because He has made you a champion and His ability is working in you.
Scripture Reading - Romans 8:37; Philippians 2:5; Ephesians 4:1; 1 Peter 2:9.
Exuberant Declaration: I boldly declare that I am who God says I am and I cast down every imagination and every feeling that is contrary to who I've been made to be in Christ. I am superior to the devil and all his schemes; therefore, his tactics can never keep me bound. I am a champion, a victor, an achiever, and a bundle of success in Christ and these identities are my everyday reality. Glory to God!
