Ever felt like you've let God down?
Unworthy, Yet Worthy
"Holy One, I never want to let you down no more."
~From the Walter Hawkins' gospel classic, "Holy One".
This week, I had to reconcile with God, reconcile with myself, about how I have let him down when it comes to feeling unworthy.
Yes, I am unworthy of Him but I am also worthy because of Him. God put me to the test to see if I would continue living in the former or embrace the latter.
Letting Him down meant letting myself down. Disappointing my future. Pushing against glory. Delaying or denying victory. To say it was difficult would be an understatement, but so is bumping your head up against a ceiling. Nevertheless, how I saw myself as a woman and as a child of God had to change if I am ever going to reach and fulfill the next level of my purpose. I've been in a similar space before, but not like this. This breakthrough was for my next level.
Did you know your purpose has levels?
Every stronghold, every place of warfare, every cycle of hesitation that we allow to continue keeps from discovering the next piece to the puzzle as to why we are still here...
why COVID didn't take us...
why depression didn't break us...
why hell still hates us.
Aren't You Tired Yet?
Enough is enough. I want my next level.
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. ~John 1:17 New International Version
The law locks the door on our future. Grace and truth are the key. The next level towards that abundant, glory-filled life awaits us. We just have to use the key.
What is it that God has been saying about you that you keep dismissing with false humility? What truth has he been trying to reveal that you work so hard to cover up? Fulfilling purpose is hard. Hiding it is harder.
Aren't you tired yet?
We are his to bless, to protect, to honor, to teach, to console, to comfort, to chastise,
to never let go.
It's time to Walk in Grace and Truth
When we live in false humility, we are seeking redemption from a world that doesn't have the capacity to give it. Christ redeemed us. Address your shortcomings, your sins, your failures with Him - the One who paid the price for you. Conversations about what you don't deserve are for your prayers to Heaven. Walk the earth in what you deserve as a child of God.
We walk in grace and in truth. We walk in Christ Jesus.
Living in a space of unworthiness and false humility loosens your grip on the future. It's what God's grace says about you that matters. It's what his truth about you reveals that matters. Any and everything else is a lie.
God takes us from grace to grace. This may not be the last time I have this intervention with myself, but as long as I hold on to the key...
Another day of unworthiness is another day away from destiny.
You are worthy. Christ's blood confirms it.
