THE POWER OF SELF AWARENESS

SATURDAY 09 DECEMBER 2023


When Paul started the chapter one of the book known as Colossians, he introduced Himself as an apostle (special messenger, personally chosen representative) of Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed) - by the will of God. He knew that he was an emissary of Jesus Christ, serving at God's pleasure. He never lost touch with that cognizance.

Reference: Colossians 1:25 Amplified Bible (AMP)

"In this church I was made a minister according to the stewardship which God entrusted to me for your sake, so that I might make the word of God fully known [among you]—"


In the above versified statement, apostle Paul made an insistence to the Colossian church saying, "I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness."


Paul wanted the Colossian saints to understand who he was, as well as who sent him. You'll also notice that first and foremost, in everything he got involved with, his Christian life reflected his identity as a priority.


In another Scripture, apostle Paul stated, "This, then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed" (1st Corinthians 4:1 NIV). Beloved, Paul never forgot this awareness; he always made it known, and that is, by reminding and letting them know about it while addressing them. Beloved, this manner of confidence and persuasion can be learned, thereby training your spirit to always signal your mental processes to reinforce your own identity.


Why do some Christians struggle to rise above their inner limiting voice, while other Christians seem to exude waves of bold attitude, come what may? The answer is this: The power of self awareness. The fixed cognizance of who you really are is quite beneficial, even to the point of boosting your sense of belongingness ( 1 Corinthians 3:23; 1 Corinthians 12:27; Ephesians 2:19), your level of motivation (Philippians 4:13), and your spiritual attainments (1 Corinthians 15:10).


Be thankful for who you are in Christ; always voice it out oftentimes, and apply it to your advantage, until you develop an assemblage of victorious experiences based on it. It is utterly impossible to live a victorious Christian life on earth without the verbal and practical knowledge of who you are in the Lord. Understand that embracing your true identity in Christ and functioning accordingly imply that you are complete in Him, rooted in Him and actively alive in Him.


If you are still in doubt of who you really are in Christ, I commend you to God and the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and leave you with a grounded level of divinely-backed information, designed to position you to function in victory. Shalom!


Scripture Reading - Psalm 139:13-16; Isaiah 43:4; John 1:12; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 8:17; Philippians 3:20.


Exuberant Declaration:

I know who I am! I am a new creation, supremely blessed with all spiritual blessings. I'm treasured, wealthy, healthy, sound, courageous, heavenly minded, graceful, joyful and very happy. I'm a chosen generation, a royal priest of peculiar importance, a holy nation and a huge blessing to my generation. I'm forever grateful because I function accordingly, by the help of the Spirit. Praise God!
