We are often the biggest obstacles to achieving our dreams and goals. As I reflect on my life, the struggles and many poor choices I made, I know that I have contributed to some of the setbacks I had experienced.
In all honesty, I may have given the devil too much credit. The biggest obstacle in my way was staring back in the mirror, ME!
With time comes maturity, wisdom, and acceptance. It’s easier for me to admit it to myself now. I believe some of my actions were not good; although my intentions may have been. The Bible talks about the heart, “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it?” Jeremiah.17:9, NASB.
Wrong thinking can take us to hell and back. Faulty reasoning can be ideas and misconceptions we believe. Many have missed their destiny because of wrong thinking that they believed was right at the time.
Our thoughts shape by our world whether they are right or wrong. Our thoughts have creative power, For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he – Proverbs. 23:7, KJB.
Even though I am part of the Royal family of God and co-creator with Him, I cannot take the place of the King of kings and Lord of lords. I must give up the throne and take my rightful place at His feet.
I dethrone myself. I relinquish power to You
I surrender my life to You God, take your rightful place on your throne.
Rule and reign over every aspect of my life
Your throne is eternal.
You, O LORD, rule forever; Your throne is from generation to generation. (Lamentations 5:19 NASM)
