We are defined not by what we say or do but by who we believe in our heart of hearts God is. Renewing our minds will change what and how we think, it will change what we say, do and who we are. As we start to see God for who He really is we will also start to see who we truly are. No person has ever been greater than his religion and no religion has ever been greater than its idea about who God is.
God says that He knows the thoughts and plans that He has for us, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give us hope in our final outcome. (Jeremiah 29:11)
To enjoy God’s future for us we need to know what God’s thoughts are about us. We can only learn that through His Word. I have included only a few Scriptures on which you can meditate to step into God’s thoughts about who you are.
See yourself as God sees you.
Say about yourself what God says about you.
