How God Sees You - David Shutt It‟s so important to know who we are. We live in days where our identity is challenged on a daily basis. We‟re asked to conform to a look, a size, a certain behaviour, a particular set of views. But we don‟t need to change to be like the world, for the world is going to change to become like us - because we are like Jesus. (Genesis 1:27) Psalm 139:14 tells us that we have been “fearfully and wonderfully made” by God, the Creator of all things. We cannot improve on perfection. Now, of course, we‟re all called to look after ourselves from a health and fitness point of view, but our
greatest concern must be conforming to King Jesus and not the latest fad or five-minutes-of-fame celebrity. If you know who you are, you know what you can do. The Devil would have us believe that we are weak, when in fact we are strong. (2 Cor 12:10) He wants us to believe we are weary, but the Bible tells us that as we wait on the Lord our strength is renewed. (Isaiah 40:31) The Devil tries to bombard us with feelings of inadequacy; Jesus came to lift up our heads and tell us who we really are. (Psalm 3:3) Through whose eyes do you see yourself? The world‟s or the Lord‟s? It‟s only when we see ourselves as God
sees us, how His Word describes us that we learn who we really are. You‟re not small and timid like a kitten - “the righteous are as bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1)
This week, let the Word of God be a mirror to you, to encourage you to see who you really are; His work of art, His obsession, His masterpiece. (Eph 2:10)
What the Bible Says about... 4 MORE VERSES TO ENCOURAGE YOU
1 2 3 4
“YOU ARE FORGIVING AND GOOD, O LORD, ABOUNDING IN LOVE TO ALL WHO CALL TO YOU.” PSALM 86:5
“I WAIT FOR THE LORD, MY SOUL WAITS, AND IN HIS WORD I PUT MY HOPE. MY SOUL WAITS FOR THE LORD MORE THAN WATCHMEN WAIT FOR THE MORNING, MORE THAN WATCHMEN WAIT FOR THE MORNING. O ISRAEL, PUT YOUR HOPE IN THE LORD, FOR WITH THE LORD IS UNFAILING LOVE AND WITH HI M IS FULL REDEMPTION.” PSALM 130:5-7
“ENTER HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING AND HIS COURTS WITH PRAISE; GIVE THANKS TO HIM AND PRAISE HIS NAME. FOR THE LORD IS GOOD AND HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER; HIS FAITHFULNESS CONTINUES THROUGH ALL GENERATIONS.” PSALM 100:4-5 “LET THEM GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD FOR HIS UNFAILING LOVE AND HIS WONDERFUL DEEDS FOR MEN, FOR HE SATISFIES THE THIRSTY AND FILLS THE HUNGRY WITH GOOD THINGS.” PSALM 107:8-9
Don’t doubt in your heart and do not fear says the Lord, for I am coming soon. For as sure as I know the numbers of the hairs on your head, do I know the day of my coming and that day of power and day of victory, when I will return as Bridegroom for you my spotless Bride. But know, says the Lord, as the prophets have spoken, and now I say to you again, that before that great and glorious day, I will come to you in power, in manifestation and bring about a time of outpouring the likes this world has never seen. And I have chosen you All Nations Church to be pivotal in this, in this time. I have called you to be a loud and clear voice, beckoning all to come and hear. For your voice, All Nations Church, is not only to this city and to this nation but to the very ends of the world. So, says the Lord, I urge you and I encourage you to prepare yourselves with haste. Put away squabbles and arguments, set aside difference and contention. Remove from within you anything that is fractious and divisive. For I will pour out my Spirit on one body, unified and ready to receive. Where there are differences, pursue oneness. Where there is repentance, be swift in your apologies. Where there has been wrongdoing, seek righteousness and make amends. Do it quickly, says the Lord, for it as one that I will bless you, in unity that I will command my blessing so great that many will come to see and know and believe. I am preparing, says the Lord to send the rain. The pitcher of my anointing is full to overflowing and my arm is poised to pour. I am coming soon, says your God. Be expectant, be watching, be waiting and move swift to be whole, says the Lord. PROPHETIC WORD TO ALL NATIONS CHURCH 12TH DECEMBER 2010
Hope is the word which God has written on the brow of every man. ~ (Victor Hugo)

INSPIRE: Crumbling Kingdoms By Roger Aubrey Ozymandias of Egypt
Each passing week brings news I met a traveller from an antique land of another autocratic government Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone in the Middle East falling apart. A Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, few months ago men like Hosni Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, Mubarak of Egypt, Muammar And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Gaddafi of Libya, and Zine Tell that its sculptor well those passions read al-Abidine Ben Ali of Tunisia Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, thought they were impregnable The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed. And on the pedestal these words appear -and their dynasties would "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: continue. As I write, Gaddafi is Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!" holding out by the skin of his Nothing beside remains. Round the decay teeth, his days or hours are Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare numbered. The lone and level sands stretch far away.
This poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley is quite appropriate:
