How can you be yourself in a world of judgment?


Question:

How can you be yourself in a world of judgment?

Scripture:

Isaiah 42:6

“I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles,

Breakdown:

Life is tough sometimes and with the added stress of judgment, peer pressure, even social norms being yourself can at times be difficult. I really like this scripture because it shows how God gives us the strength to be ourselves. The second line says “I will take hold of your hand”. I love this because God is saying he wants an intimate, one on one relationship with us. Our heavenly father wants to help us in our daily lives. He wants to give us direction and guidance to navigate life’s challenges. By surrendering our selfish desires and truly seeking him we are able to have a remarkable life changing relationship. The scripture points out being a light, in this case for people who are not following God. This is important because it gives us a lifelong purpose to do just that. Be a light, a teacher, a brother, sister, mother, father, a shoulder to cry on, or simply a friend to people who don’t have a relationship with God. It doesn’t take leaps and bounds to come into a fulfilling relationship with God. (Although it may feel like it at times) God will work with you once you open your heart and ask for help. Asking is believing and we believe by faith not by sight.

Encouragement:

Whether you’re in dire need of God’s provision or you’re doing pretty well. Question not whether you need God in your life or not. Question if you are open and willing to receive his love and experience life abundantly by his grace and mercy.

God loves you; I love you, Thanks for stopping by!
