KNOWING WHO I AM


So often we spend great amounts of time trying to
find out who we are. Perhaps there have been so
many things in our lives that have affected the way
we think and feel. We wonder who we would be if
these things would never have happened. It becomes
a quest to "find ourselves." The Bible tells us not to
do that at all. If we spend precious time trying to find
out who we are, we will always run into a brick wall.
If we really want to know who we are, we will seek
the Lord with our whole heart. He tells us if we seek
Him we will find Him. In finding the Lord, we will
always find ourselves, because we are in Him. We
are children of the Almighty God.


Heavenly Father, we must ask your forgiveness for
striking out on our own quest to find out who we are.
You have clearly told us in your Word that we are to
seek you, so that we will find you. In finding you,
Lord, we will also find who we are. We thank you
and praise you for mighty love, wisdom, and grace.
In Jesus' name.


Read Matthew 10:39


"Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever
loses his life for my sake will find it." (NIV)


"He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that
loseth his life for my sake shall find it." (KJV)

"Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." What a blessed assurance to know that when we leave this earthly tent we will be forever in the presence of Jesus. God's blessings too you. Lloyd
