Around 2012, I was invited to a conference in Dallas that helped me to move along a little further on the path.
Still in the process of finding Personality and Persona, and still learning more and more about God and His character.
This conference was a bit like the conference in 2008, only on steroids.
At this conference, we were encouraged to not be happy with only changing who we thought we were in God’s eyes, but to be the ones who helped those around us to make the change for their own selves.
You know. Be the change. Be “Game Changers”.
Time for that upgrade?
We won’t have time here for three days worth of info.
I’ll just share one step.
It’s a big step, but a place to begin.
God wants us to learn to trust Him. He is consistently trying to teach us how to do that.
“There are two things God is doing. He is teaching us how to trust Him. It is really difficult to become Christ like when everything is going well. You do not learn the beauty of it when things are going well, because you are busy enjoying it and it is exactly the right thing to do. But when it is not going well, when it is hard, that is when God finds out things about us. That is when we learn to trust Him and when He learns to trust us. That is the second thing God is doing. He is bringing us to a place where he can trust us.” Graham Cooke
We have to know who God is for us; every single day, in the good times and the bad.
- Who is God for me when things are going wrong?
- Who is God for me when favor is being displayed?
- Who is God for me when I am in need?
- Who is God for me when I need more resources?
- Who is God for me on any given day?
- How does God see me?
- How does He think about me?
- How does He talk about me?
Answers to these questions come by experience with God.
From that experience comes the knowledge of who He is, and an encounter with Him that builds trust.
“What you think about God is the most important thought you’re ever going to have.
What you think about God is everything and you have to work it out.
If you do not know that vital stuff about God, you are always going to struggle when the heat is on.
It is what you know about God that keeps you, that makes you stand, that makes you get up, and that makes you walk.
Our true identity is made up of who we are on earth and how we are known in heaven.
You have an identity that heaven knows and understands.
You are known in heaven!”
Join me on Friday for the last installment about who you are.
