Be True To Yourself

 In a world that everything has become acceptable and blindly tolerable, you must decide and take a stand for what is permissible for you. Be true to yourself by choosing the only standard that will bring a favorable eternal outcome. Being true to yourself means being honest in your own heart. If you are not up to par in your walk with God then just admit it and then make the adjustments and grow up and move forward. 

We all know it is miserable to be out of the will of God. Oftentimes people pretend to be having a good time (spiritually and naturally) but the distress of their soul is apparent when you gaze into their eyes. Suddenly, you see their true condition; they are barren and empty. They smile yet all the while they are kicking against the pricks of their God given destiny. They try to engage in vain amusements and mind cluttering activities so they won’t have to think about the sorrow and emptiness that press daily on their soul (mind, will and emotion).

Being true to your self means to stop the facade and get off the roller coaster of worldliness and self destructive behavior, and immediately submit to the TRUTH. It means getting down to business with YOU. It means pointing your own finger in your own face and saying stop, no more pretending, it’s all or nothing, I choose to go forward through Jesus Christ, my Redeemer!
Being true to yourself means staying with your decision to obey God no matter what anybody else chooses to do.

You and I must choose to stop being narrow-minded towards the specific plans and purposes God has for our lives. We must be willing to accept His plan and follow His directions, forsaking our own plans and ideas that don't align with His. You will never be truly satisfied in your soul when you are outside the parameters of God's will for your life.

Narrow-minded defined:
  • Not willing to accept opinions, beliefs, or behaviors that are unusual or different from your own.
  • Lacking in tolerance or breadth of vision.
The vision for your life can only be actualized in the Light (Jesus Christ). Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6).

Proverbs 29:18 - Where there is no vision (no revelation of God and His Word), the people are unrestrained; But happy and blessed is he who keeps the law (of God).

Being true to your self means submitting to the Truth. God's Word (the Bible) must live and reign in your heart (spirit). Jesus said, ...If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed;
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:31-32).
Knowing the Truth, is being true to yourself. Knowing the Truth is to experience true freedom. Freedom from the deceitful lies of Satan and darkness. Free from a life of pretense and emptiness. Free from anxieties and burdens. Free from uncertainty and misguided purpose and destiny. Free from chaos and confusion. Free to be the "you" that God created you to be.

Be True to yourself and enjoy God's best for the rest of your life!

Take the time to know God through true fellowship and develop a relationship with Him. Intimacy with God will always produce good fruit that is worth waiting for.

Being true to yourself means stepping back and letting God take the lead in your life. He knows what's best for you. So settle down and renounce the crown of selfishness by being true to yourself and yielding to God.

We can do nothing without God. Yet we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, as we yield to Him day by day. Be Blessed!
