IAM a God Imitator

EPH 5:1-2 NLT Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.

I can tell you as a father of two wonderful amazing girls in their childhood, there have been distinct moments when I have observed them do something really amazing.  The thoughts that went through my mind was : “That’s my girls!  Yes! I am their Daddy!  Yes those little mini-me’s right there, those are my children!”  Their actions were a pleasing aroma to me and my wife.  And even more to God.  Yes, I have the wonderful privilege of raising my girls until they are adults, and I hope I can model Godly things for them everyday.
God does that in the heavens everyday when he sees you.  Do you know that?  Can you hear it?

Today, the word is encouraging us to the imitators of God.  Imitation not in a bad, knock off, poor copy sort of way, but a very very close representation of the true and living God.  Be imitators in everything we do.   Everything, leaves no room for a sliver of weakness.  When we play the part, and start living it out, it becomes very very difficult to compartmentalize my old life, and my new life.  I want to encourage you:  Go all in!  Don’t reserve 1% of your life, and say:”God, I trust you for 99% but I gotta keep this 1% for myself”  God wants it all, and he demands everything.  As your heart desires to be more like God, just say, Ok God, I trust you the good father, with everything in my life.  Buckle up, because it’s a wonderful ride!

Walking-in-Your-Destiny

We imitate God, because it is his DNA that he has given to us.  We imitate God, because it is our new nature to live a life filled with love.  Ask God to fill you with love every morning.  Ask God to help you to be more and more like Jesus in all that you do.  Jesus came to this earth to serve and sacrfice his life for us.  Jesus loved and lived sacrifically.  That’s our perfect example for true wonderful aroma filled living.

There is nothing you can do or say that can take away your identity that God has placed on you.
It doesn’t matter if you were born into this world with awesome parents, or rotten parents, your DNA is the DNA of the Creator.
Their life and destiny is not your life and destiny.
God is a loving father that has an amazing unique plan for your life.
Remember the truth:  I am God’s dear child, He loved me and gave himself to purchase my life.

IAM Awesome

Hi, I had to get this down in words today.  It’s a creed, a manifesto, a war cry.   A summary, but not the end.

IAM Victorious
I have supreme confidence in the one who gave me life
IAM Beautiful and I love myself
I see beauty in all of God’s creation
IAM skillfully and wonderfully created

My DNA is the DNA of God and so is yours
IAM loved by God, and nothing I can do can take away his Love for me
I have received deep inner healing from the wounds and lies of the world
IAM uniquely called to deliver a message of Love and Hope to all
I live my life with faith, vision and passion, never regret or excuses
IAM a Conquering Warrior
I fight for justice for those who cannot fight for themselves
Friend, my creed isn’t just for me. It’s for you too.  You have an amazing contribution to give our world, and you are the only person who is uniquely gifted to do it.  Find and become the best version of yourself.  Proclaim the truth about who you are everyday and night.  When you wake up, and when you go to sleep, look into mirror and see your beautiful face.  Smile and speak the truth to yourself and your soul. Your whole life up until this point may have been a battleground of getting beat up.  Today start the healing process inside of you.  Develop a new habit of loving and healing yourself.
I love you. I see you.
You are talented in many ways!

IAM to Praise the Lord

PSALMS 148:4-5 NLT Praise him, skies above! Praise him, vapors high above the clouds! Let every created thing give praise to the lord , for he issued his command, and they came into being.

Psalms 148 is one long run on sentence with one message:  PRAISE THE LORD!

Take the time to read the whole chapter and in your mind envision yourself in the grand scheme of the universe.
The heavens , skies, angels, sun, moon, stars, skies, earth, creatures, kings, rulers, men, women, Let them ALL Praise the Lord!

Let’s zoom out of our own existence to understand we are one voice and one life that is willingly praising the Lord.
Why are we willing?  Because as we focus on the greatness that HE is! On the amazing power that is our God is, we can only fall onto our knees, raise our hands in surrender and give him the praise that is due.

Taking the time to zoom out and get perspective is a big help to get a proper understand of the power of our God, in relation to our issues.  Praising God brings our heart and minds back onto the most important thing that matters.  It creates proper perspective about the fact of who is really in charge in this big world.
Then with proper perspective, we pray for miracles with supreme faith in knowing God holds all the keys to Kingdom.  God created and designed the body, mind, liver, pancreas, vertabrae, blood and heart.  He knows how to put back in order, what is not right.  God knows how to control the minds of men, kings and governments.  Praising God, increases our faith in the only one who really matters.
 God's Handiwork

While you are out and about, driving to work, look up and see the sky and clouds.  Understand their beauty and uniqueness are all praising the Lord.  The trees, shift and sway, and they are dancing in God’s presence to point back to the wonderful creator.

Let every created thing, praise the Lord!  He spoke us into existence.

That life giving word!  Gave you life, brought you into relationship with the creator of the universe.
And our created response is to live our lives, and point everything back to him.

Let’s praise him
Let’s give him all the glory
Let’s have faith for all things, because we have a proper understanding of how this thing works

IAM created with an amazing purpose.
IAM created by an awesome creator
IAM the heartbeat of our God
IAM a beautiful reflection of our all powerful Lord.
IAM one voice in the wonderful chorus of singers that are all harmoniously praising the Creator

IAM Marvelous

Psalms 139:14 NKJV I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

There are some people that might be a little too caught up with themselves.
But I truly believe many are not able to look in the mirror and proclaim these truths out loud.

Can you see the beauty that God has put inside of you?
Can you look into the mirror and smile?
Can you quiet the lies of the world?
Can you quiet the lies of an angry parent?
Can you shut out the lies of unsupportive family members?

Too many people are not happy with that they see in the mirror. Achievers are not happy with the results in their lives. That’s not our identity!  It’s not what defines you!

When our self image is poor, and borderline self hatred, then we are left in our pity party. We aren’t loving others, because we can’t even love ourselves. We are hating on ourselves and hating on our creator. And we are just stuck in a place, doing nothing.  Exactly where the destroyer of lives wants you to be.

That’s why we must bulletproof our minds and spirit against any lies.

When our plans to do something don’t exactly work out the way we thought… we can’t let that define us. When someone is hateful or angry towards us, we have to learn how to understand it’s the hurt and anger inside of them that makes them lash out and want to bring me down.  But it’s not a reflection on the fearfully and wonderfully made person that stands before God!

I pray that your SOUL knows this very very very well. God is our creator, he has given us his DNA, he has given us his breath.

God made you fearfully and wonderfully
God’s work to create you, and his continuous work in you daily , is MARVELOUS!

What is our true identity, and who you say you are. In your proclamations of ‘IAM!” Are rooted in the beauty and masterpiece of God, then it’s not vain conceit.

Then after you have pumped yourself up in the mirror, and you can smile and stare at yourself.schermata-2014-05-05-a-11.36.39vd-9805_0x440

Then open your eyes to the beauty of God’s creation in your fellow man.

Humility is having a proper view of ourselves. Not boastful. But also not the pride of the worm.   Don’t put yourself down either.

And if that’s a bad habit for you, then it’s going to take over 21 days of mental conditioning and spiritual healing to fix it.  But it’s not impossible!

The healthy balance is right in the center of God’s truth today. Write it out, say it loud, but fill your heart and mind with the truth.

Really!  Get a journal, and write the truth about your greatness

 There’s no room for the lies of the enemy to freeze you and push you back

IAM Destined for Greatness

plans-for-your-life-jeremiah-29-11

JEREMIAH 29:11-13 NLT For I know the plans I have for you,” says the lord . “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.

Do you believe you have a destiny for greatness?

My definition for greatness:  Serving the needs of the many.

God created you for a specific purpose!  You have a unique personality and character that is necessary for God’s purposes

God has an amazing plan for my life and yours.
None of those plans involve disaster.  That’s good right?

God knows the plans he has for us.  God’s wisdom and plans are too complex for me to understand.  He doesn’t do things the way the world expects.   People wanted a military king, but he sent the Prince of Peace: Jesus

God’s plan is to give us a future and a hope.
To give us positive expectations for a better life.
To give us hope that life is going to be abundant.

I don’t see anything in here about life being a cruel joke.

I don’t see anything about life being 6 days of suffering for a couple moments of pleasure.
I don’t see anything in the bible about murphy’s law.
But somehow these attitudes and mindsets have invaded our society and thinking
Let’s remove these lies from our thinking and embrace the truth in our identity and our God.

As God’s people, we have an amazing future, hope and destiny for greatness.  We may not know how everything will play out, but God makes it very clear how we can stay on that path to greatness

Pray, and look for God wholeheartedly.  Then we will find God.
Promise: you WILL FIND ME.
Promise: When you pray, I WILL LISTEN!
Promise:  If we look for God wholeheartedly,  WE WILL FIND HIM!

Wholeheartedly means searching for God like we are searching for a missing child!  A manhunt.

Did you ever turn over your whole house just to look for one missing thing? Let’s have that same posture and aggression when its comes to looking for God.

Let’s proclaim the truth!

IAM Destined for Greatness
IAM Hopeful for the Future
When I Pray, God will Listen
When I seek wholeheartedly, I Will Find Him
