Matthew 12:25 – Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, ‘Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.’…”
When I am against myself – I will not stand.
But we say, “No – I must die and Christ must live.” Yes – but check this out – is God against you or for you?
We shouldn’t be against ourselves, but be for ourselves – who we are in Jesus Christ.
What Christ said wasn’t to constantly cut yourself down, but to lose yourself and make Him Lord.
Bringing yourself down all the time will get you nowhere – trust me, I know. Rather than cutting ourselves down (which is not what Christ wants us to do), we must be for ourselves as people of Christ.
Believe in Christ’s power in your life – believe – believe – believe- & be.
A house divided against itself will fall.
But stand in & let Christ’s power work through you in everything you do (Philippians 4:13).
Say to yourself, “This is one house not divided – but secure with the foundation of Jesus Christ.”
Fruit-caking wake up and experience the power we have to overcome everything in Jesus Christ!!! Don't be divided against yourself.
1) Where have you been cutting yourself down the most? How has that been productive? Realize that cutting yourself down is counter-productive to building yourself and God's Kingdom up.
2) What does God say about you? Don’t believe lies that Satan tells you, but look through the Bible & write down 5 things that God says about you. (i.e.: He made you in His image…; For God so loved you that He sent His one and only Son…)
3) Pray, simply, that God would help you overcome your problem areas of self-image and that He’d give you His strength to conquer & overcome for His Glory. That He'd let you see yourself as He sees you. Believe.
