YOU HAVE BEEN HIGHLY ESTEEMED AND THE JUDGE SAYS “NOT GUILTY”!

How do you see yourself today?  Do you depend on how you feel about yourself or do you take what people say about you and apply that to your mind and heart?  Who has the right to say anything about who you really are?  Who sees the inside and who tells you the truth?

Paul says that the mark of a true believer is that we put no confidence in the flesh; we put no hope in our selves.  He explains all the things he could have ‘esteem’ in about himself, his heritage, his passion for the Church, his knowledge of Scripture, or being a good person is not how  a Christian or God bases esteem.

You hear people talking about our journey with Christ must be a relationship.  That relationship involves a Holy God, His son, His Holy Spirit imparting knowledge into your heart.  Heart knowledge…heart esteem…heart relationship.  So, we allow these God personalities to block what the “Evil One” or flesh would say to us as individuals.

Those of us who are married or have been married, know that relationships involve open honesty and transparency.  The same applies to the ultimate relationship with God.  Listening to the Holy Spirit (thereby gaining insight and strength), telling Him the secrets of your heart (He will not condemn), He will encourage and speak truth, and responding in obedience.  (You can only be in relationship when you submit)

Healthy Esteem?  God provides that.  Will you accept it?
