“You are looking at things as they are outwardly. If anyone is confident in himself that he is Christ’s, let him consider this again within himself, that just as he is Christ’s, so also are we” (2 Corinthians 10:7).
The outward appearance of things is often deceiving. We all can put on airs and present something less than what is really true. Look inward and dare to allow the Spirit to go deep and see who you really are. Only in the truth of the Lord, where all is known, do we begin to see how much we really need to be saved. From the inside out, the Lord will reveal the truth and save you.
Lord, may I never stop what You are doing in me by grace. Help me to not pretend nor think that I am good enough. In fact, may I not worry about how far, how long, or what it takes for me to become like You. Help me to humbly walk with You as You lead me no matter what. Guide me Lord in the way of salvation You know I need to walk that I may simply and humbly follow You all the days of my life. Lead me Lord in the way of salvation.
Come, Holy Spirit, and go deep into my heart that, step by step, all that needs to be done is done in and through You. You know me better than I know myself. In the truth of the salvation You have given me, guide me in Your goodness to see through the false hopes of this world to know that all hope and promise is in and through You. Guide me this day as I journey with You leading. Amen.
