Scriptures:

  • Blessed are the pure in heart,
        for they will see God.Matthew 5:8 (NIV)

 

  • Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”Luke 23:34a (NIV)

 

  • We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.2 Corinthians 10:5 (NIV)

 

  • For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.[a] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”Jeremiah 29:11-14 (NIV)

 

Hold Yourself Accountable:

  • Seek to discover your identity and who you are.

 

Apply the Kingdom Principle:

  • “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.”Ephesians 2:19-22 (NIV)

 

Take Action Now:

  • Begin to really seek God, because your true identity is found within Him.
  • Do the work that is necessary to draw closer to God and discover who He wants you to be.
