The Monday Morning Message For The Eternal Body Of Christ 6-17-13 Godfidence & God Esteem

God Esteem and GODfidence


You might be asking yourself, what is God Esteem? ...and How does one obtain it?

Looking to God for every form of validation; self worth, value, acceptance, love, encouragement.
Redefining self worth based on Biblical principals, rooted in practical applications such as; small actions, small choices, small incremental advances but done consistently! Over time as you train your mind & your emotions to NOT REACT, but rather to recreate new realities that come into alignment with His word, thus, everything begins to change! The attitude & outlook effects or choices & decisions. Our decisions & actions affect our outcome! When all of these variables are filtered through His will for your life, you will be under His Divine overshadowing!

Let's redefine the term, "Self defeating" & discover the common misnomer associated with accepting total responsibility for these thoughts, behaviors and actions. Yes, we are partly responsible for them, in accepting them, in acting out upon them, in resigning to them BUT we need to recognize who the Author of wrong thinking truly is. Satan has the ability to speak to us in our own voice internally, mimicking us; in an attempt to gain access to the subconscious. He is the voice that speaks bad, negative, defeating words to your inner self. When you listen to this voice, especially when you are down or have failed at something, you secretly agree with the words, the put-downs or the insults. He tends to mock, he makes you think & fear that people don’t like you, that you aren’t good enough, strong enough, capable enough! This voice within is certainly not God, and it is certainly not You, until of course you begin adopting this way of thinking. This way of thinking is adopted whenever you give into those "suggestions" placed by the enemy.

James 5:19-20
 19Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;
 20Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Ephesians 4:29
 29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

If God tells us in the Bible how to conduct ourselves toward others, it is safe to also conclude that His spirit would also never inflict such demoralizing attacks on us.

There is a way to recognize the difference between inner conflict which arises from the conscience verses inner battery caused by satan's attempts to keep us in a downward spiral of bad feelings, choices & results! Once you are aware that this is a serious reality, you will begin to pay closer attention the dialogue that transpires between your ears! When something begins to make you feel bad, low and ugly...(ask God to reveal the truth to you)!
God does not belittle us, god does not speak words of condemnation to you inwardly!) Yes, the word of God, the Bible clearly explains condemning lifestyles and beliefs, but God does not talk down to us, He does not speak demoralizing words. He is the God of Mercy and the God of Grace!

God’s way of correcting offers us a way to feel good about our decision. Whenever the Holy Spirit (pricks our conscience) the Overwhelming truth and KEY FACT, you need to remember, is that you will always without question be offered an encouragement to amend your wrongful actions. You will always be met with some sort of empathy for someone with whom you have dealt wrongly. You will get the sensation that your action to make good or make better is a good thing & that even though you cannot undo what you did, you can correct it from happening again.

Whenever you are being spoken to in ERROR, you will always be served some sort of twisted justification. The entire focus will be on how bad you feel, how unfair it is & how easy it is to just accept the defeat! The voice of this abusive spirit can and will try to convince you that you are deserving of the outcome & that it is all your fault. No matter what the conflict is, it always seems to hinge upon struggles that you have had for years, this is because he knows where you are weakest and he kicks you when you are down!

Admonition, correction, praise and criticism....

We must also be careful, cautious if you will, where and how we accept any form of criticism.
I heard a sermon by J Staley which certainly rings true...there are people who spend their time trying to get into your head, to undermine you and thwart you. (they are directly under the influence of the demonic) there are only two sources that supply us with motivation, that of the heavenlies and that of the underworld.

Jim Staley- The Great Deception (Recognizing the Voice of the Enemy)


Matthew 11:28-30 
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Luke 12:7 
Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Jeremiah 29:11 
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Zephaniah 3:17 
The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

John 10:1-42 
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.”
