IN THE HARD PLACE – (Part 5)- SEEING AND SAYING ABOUT YOURSELF WHAT GOD SEES AND SAYS ABOUT YOU!
Have you ever gone to a fairground and seen those mirrors that if you stand in front of them they DISTORT What you truly look like!
In the HARD PLACE, lots of thoughts cross our mind, the evil one shooting thoughts and even the words of others to DISTORT the truth about God and what He sees and says about you in Christ! So, the way to combat the accusations, condemnations, lies, and DISTORTIONS of truth is with The Truth! God’s Word!
Say about yourself only what He says about you and see yourself only as He sees you “In Christ!”
So in those difficult days. Those hard days when your mind is under attack trying to DISTORT your view of God and God’s view of you. Here are a few thoughts to encourage you to see yourself as God sees you as you are before Him “In Christ…”

Today, Tomorrow, and every day this week and every day for the rest of your life…See yourself as He sees you and rejoice in Him who loves you and makes it all true for you “In Christ.” Because of what He has done for you…you are Spiritually Rich “In Christ.” Trials, troubles, tragedies, and HARD PLACE’S are TEMPORAL but your position in Christ is ETERNAL!
PRINT OUT the list above and place it in your Bible or on a Mirror in your bathroom so that you can look and be reminded to see the truth of who God sees you as and who He says you are and feed your mind and soul so you can recognize DISTORTED and demonic thoughts that would seek to turn you INWARD and spiral Downward into despair and respond by speaking the truth of who God sees you as because of Whose you are- You are a child of God in Christ by His doing! The HARD PLACE does not change your position “In Christ!” The HARD PLACE is Temporal though in some cases it can last a lifetime but who you are “In Christ” is ETERNAL…. and you are heading to the Father’s House ultimately to be with the LORD who loves and purchased you for Himself!
Speak to yourself often these truths to encourage your heart and strengthen your faith and primer to praise God for such extravagant riches bestowed upon you “In Christ.”
Share this truth with two believers TODAY to encourage them in their faith of the kindness of God and the great blessings which are eternally yours and theirs “IN CHRIST” by God’s doing.
Often in HARD TIMES we can fall prey to the evil ones’ lies of DISTORTION and we must trust Him to Remind us to speak truth to ourselves – and see and say about ourselves who we truly are “In Christ!” Our IDENTITY does not change in the HARD PLACE, Thank God!
* Only say what Christ says about you. For only what Christ says is true!
