Take A New Look!

Take a new Look! You will believe!

Today… think good thoughts about yourself.

The swirl of negative and limiting beliefs that play in your head and heart will suck you under the sea of doubt fear and unbelief – IF YOU LET IT! As you know, the thoughts…”I am not good enough. I am not smart enough. I am not good looking enough! I am not confident enough. I don’t have any resources. I cannot help anyone because I have nothing they want to hear!” will tear your confidence down and hold your soul captive.

Have you ever heard or felt anything like this? I have. These thoughts have come up inside me again and again, and I take each thought captive. Take every thought captive, not only your own but also the thoughts your friends or enemies send you!

So take a new look!!! The new look must come from within!

To begin this process, have a conversation with your unconscious mind. Say this, “I give my unconscious mind permission to change. I give my unconscious permission to be aware of new beliefs replacing old thoughts consciously. I receive truth as a person and not just a principle.

As you begin to focus on your future, take time to speak life to your entire being. ‘Unconscious…I tell you to receive God’s eternal Word as truth. I want you unconscious to receive the eternal holy light as truth. My unconscious mind, grab onto God’s Word and the Spirit of Truth and pull it to my core. Now I agree with my Father. I am made in His image and He chose me before he created anything. He is my source and I live in His dream! I walk in His wisdom and I continually live in His promises.

As I believe I receive! I choose to believe my Father loves to provide for my needs and my desires.'”

My limited belief system has held me captive too long. I now remember, my mental focus will determine my ability to set and achieve the goals I aspire to.

REPLACE LIMITING BELIEF #1

When you hear, “I am not good enough, and I am not good looking enough! ”

You replace the lie in a declaration, “I take these thoughts captive now in Jesus Name. I break an agreement with the lie that says “I am not good enough, and I am not good looking enough.” and I now agree with the truth, “I am chosen in Christ before the foundations of the world! (Ephesians 1:4).

I declare to my unconscious, receive the truth that my eternal Father set my value before he sent me here. He knitted me together in my mother’s womb! (Psalms 139:13-14 NLT) No opinion on earth can establish my value.

The Word of God’s Truth: “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.” (Psalms 139:13-14 NLT)

My eternal Father says, “I have chosen you and wove you together in your mother’s womb. You are not the bloodline you were born into, yet I inserted you into this family, this place, and this time for a purpose! (Acts 17:16-18) You are my child and you look like me!”

REPLACE LIMITING BELIEF #2

When you hear, “I am not smart enough, and I am not confident enough!”

You replace the lie in a declaration, “I take these thoughts captive and bind them into oblivion in Jesus name! I break an agreement with the lie that says “I am not smart enough, and I am not confident enough!” and now I agree with the truth, “I have the wisdom of God because I asked the Father for it! My Father made me like Him and that includes wisdom. (1 Corinthians 1:30 NLT)

I speak to my unconscious, receive the truth that my eternal Father imparted His wisdom to me, and I have the certainty that I will always use His wisdom. I am confident because he made me like him. I am confident because no one can do what I do. I am the only one who can be me. My purpose can only be fulfilled by me.

The Word of God’s Truth: “I (Jesus) have revealed you (The Father) to them, and I will continue to do so. Then your love for me will be in them, and I will be in them.” (John 17:26)

My eternal Father says, “I have made you smart, and confident. I made you like me. I want you to know that I am with you and that I will never leave you. Even though you may not always feel me, I am with you. Although you may not see me, I am with you. I will help you fulfill your purpose and destiny. Now, make your choice.”

REPLACE LIMITING BELIEF #3

When you hear, “I don’t have any resources. I cannot help anyone because I have nothing they want to hear!”

You replace the lie in a declaration, “I take these thoughts captive and bind their voice in Jesus name! I break an agreement with the lie that says “I don’t have any resources. I cannot help anyone because I have nothing they want to hear!” And I now agree with the truth, “I have all the resources I need inside me because my eternal Father gave me all the resources I need. My resources are only limited by my faith, and now I choose to release unlimited faith.

I tell my unconscious to live in unlimited faith and unlimited resources. I command my unconscious to receive the truth that my eternal Father releases my faith to succeed. When I speak others will listen. My words are important to give in the earth. “You have been called to live in freedom, my brothers, and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.” (Galatians 5:13).

The wisdom of God lives in me and I will take time with God to pull it out! I am first individually supported by my Father, then supported by others. I cannot wait for others to do or say what God wants me to do or say. When God (ELOHIM) made me like Him, He made me to thrive in a group that supports me. Yet, I will need others to help me accomplish the tasks God gives me to do because everything is more fun when I do it with a group. (Acts 2:42-46 NLT) No opinion on earth can snatch my words of truth.

The Word of God’s Truth: “Therefore, since God in his mercy has given us this new way, we never give up. We reject all shameful deeds and underhanded methods. We don’t try to trick anyone or distort the word of God. We tell the truth before God, and all who are honest know this.” (2 Corinthians 4:1-2 NLT)

My eternal Father says, “I have chosen you as my child to be my resource and my mouthpiece. Although others may not see truth like I give it to you, stand by my Word and I will lift you up! You are my child. When I was on earth they rejected me, and they will reject you. DO NOT FEAR. I AM WITH YOU!

I chose you before I made time and space, which means that you are eternally chosen and accepted. But others have a free will to either accept you and/or your words or they can choose to reject. What they believe does not establish anything for you. Their thoughts are just their thoughts, and thoughts come and go! Many on earth rejected my words, and I am God. Do not fear if others choose to throw your words aside. Believe me. The words I send will hit their mark even if you don’t see them fulfilled. Walk with me and I will strengthen you!”

Conclusion:

God Touches Man

At the end of the day, I set my affection on heaven’s values and eternal perspectives. Today I choose eternal power, eternal love, and eternal glory, over the temporary desires of the flesh. I set my heart to glorify the kingdom of heaven!

Anything is possible for me because I BELIEVE!

I am having a day of inheritance, and I receive the eternal inheritance established for me!

I am made to walk with my eternal Father and bring heaven to earth…regardless of how others treat me!

I am living a God-filled day! I receive the light and revelation of God’s love!

So what is the NEW LOOK you need to take?

Proclaim what God says about you! God’s perspective and your perspective will first appear different.

YOU ARE CHOSEN!

YOU ARE CHOSEN!Mother-and-baby

I didn’t expect to hear that. I was at a pool party changing my clothes in a stall when I heard a friend say you can’t trust what Steve says, he doesn’t tell all of the truth. And, he has so much to do; he doesn’t have time to be a good friend. But, I can help you and we can be really good friends. Of course, it is up to you. Although this was a lie, and the measurement of telling all the truth a personal judgment, it was rejection.

We had just walked out of the Junior High Cafeteria, who wants to be on my team? I heard from the crowd of friends. I said what are we going to play? I heard we are going to play flag football, and we are going to choose teams. John and Travis are going to be teaming Captains. A sick dread came over me. In Junior High I was skinny and awkward and short, and usually the last to be picked. This day, the picking happened and no one picked me. I was the odd man out. Although the captain has a right to choose whomever he wants, this was a public rejection of my individual performance, before I could mess it up.

What do you mean you can’t dance? My teacher in the fifth grade exclaimed loud enough for everyone to hear. She reacted to the note my parents sent to school. At that time, my family believed that dancing was a sin and caused one to compromise his convictions. I didn’t agree with that idea, but I had to obey. So, every year when the gym class was dancing, I was made fun of and rejected. This kind of group rejection brings humiliation, and challenges the heart.

One day during the early years of Pastoral ministry, I was counseling a young man. In the session, I shared some of my own struggles with the intent of building common ground with him. The next week, I heard murmuring in the youth group, and I was called into the Pastor’s office to be interrogated about the issue I shared. Although the issue was personal, it was not a moral issues or major sin issue, but more of a fault of character issue. This is what you could call a heart rejection.

What is Rejection?

Rejection is perhaps the most destructive social experience you will have on earth and it will be repeated. Although you must listen to what others think and say, does not mean that you should agree, believe, or take their words to heart. So you need a strategy for dealing with what others will say to you, say about you, and say about others.

At the very center of rejection is someone’s opinion given as judgment. When someone gives you their opinion, because they have a right to tell you what they think, you will have to decide how to receive those words. If you believe their words and they are positive, you will be encouraged and blessed. If you believe them and they are negative, you will feel rejection and this will cause discouragement, disappointment, and depression. You may consider what others say, but do not just accept whatever they say as truth or an accurate description of you or your personality. Everyone has an opinion, and they will always be different. Why would you evaluate your life and personality by another’s opinion? Can someone’s thoughts describe you or tell you who you are?

When rejection forms the paradigm through which you see yourself, there are devastating consequences in long-term mental health, social interaction, and basic physical health. I have seen many people suffer with a bitter and toxic soul, because they believed the toxic words of others. The environment you cultivate in your soul will determine your psyche’s health. The scripture says Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 2  A prosperous, accepting, and generous atmosphere in your soul will bring prosperity and health to your physical body.

Strategy for Overcoming Rejectionfootprints-in-the-sand-2

God knew rejection was going to be a big issue in your life so he gave some specific instructions. I am going to take these instructions from scripture.

  1. Choose to believe what God says about you! There are many rejection messages on earth but God chose you before the foundation of the world. You are chosen before time, and you must agree with that truth.

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love. Ephesians 1:4

Believe God and say out loud, I AM CHOSEN! Say it again, I AM CHOSEN. Now say it one more time and add an application. I AM ACCEPTED, AND I HAVE BEEN BEFORE TIME BEGAN. NO ONE’S OPINION CAN TELL ME WHO I AM.

  1. When an individual says destructive words to you or about you, forgive them immediately. Forgiveness will cleanse the soul and make way for acceptance. God wants you to choose. It is a way to be like God.

And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. Mark 11:25-26

Believe God’s way, and say out loud if you need to I FORGIVE YOU FOR SPEAKING WORDS OF DEATH AGAINST ME. You may have to say this a few times. Let your heart agree with what you say. I FORGIVE YOU FOR SPEAKING DEATH, AND I BREAK THE POWER OF THESE WORDS IN JESUS NAME.

  1. Choose to believe what God says and think new thoughts. Take any negative word and turn it into a positive. Most people who speak words of death are being used by Satan to destroy your purpose. Man’s opinions can sideline you from your real purpose. Turn the death into life. Jesus does this over and over again.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. Philippians 4:8-9

Now, this is a choice and an important one. Think things that are true. Think things that are honest. Think things that are just. Think thoughts that are pure. Think thoughts that are lovely. Think thoughts that are a good report. Focus your heart to believe these things. Arrest those negative thoughts and make them agree with the positive word of truth from God.

When someone would say you are ugly, and I don’t like you. You say I believe what God says that I am exceedingly beautiful. I forgive you for speaking words of death into my life. I choose to come into agreement with God’s truth, I am chosen and accepted before the foundation of the universe and I will be accepted after time is done. God knitted me together in my mother’s womb. My eternal Father chose me, He sent me here, and He is walking with me. Therefore, I choose to believe God.

Acceptance and rejection may have corroborating events and circumstances that will try to prove a point, but when you agree with God you will always overcome with truth, regardless of the evidence you may see in life. The Apostle Paul said Let God be true and every man a liar! Romans 3:4

Don’t let the opinion of man tell you that you are rejected! You are Chosen!
