Stop Condemning Yourself

Yes. Lately I got so busy checking on myself,

retrospecting and evaluating myself for what I have been to my friends , and family.

All I got was a total nightmare and full of negavities.

I needed to shake it off!

You see, sometimes it's good to look and evaluate yourself whether you have been good or bad.

But if that is stressing you out. Please STOP!

Just turn your focus in Jesus.

See how lovely and beautiful your savior is.

That is the Lord who came down on earth to save you in the midst of your sins and failures.

Because He knows you can't make it on your own.

Yeah. So I shifted my focus to Jesus instead of trying to disect myself.

And that felt good!

I am always work in progress.

But thank God, Jesus has washed all my sins away and I can only be more thankful to that.

Dear friend, everyday we will always do a little mistake here and there but do not condemn yourself.

Let us not condemn ourselves. ( because the enemy will rejoice if we do that)

Instead, let us praise Jesus for what He has done at the cross to save us from our failures.

Do not let the devil push you down.
Let Jesus LIFT you up!

My tip, everytime this happens,
I praise Him.

I praise Him for His patience and unconditional love.

I praise Him for His patience.

I praise Him because He still wants to hug me everytime I fail.

Yes. I just praise Him because He is Jesus and the Lord of lords!


Enjoy today's devotional from Ps Joseph Prince.

This has refreshed my soul.

Don’t Be Dust-Conscious by Joseph Prince

Luke 13:11
11And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up.

Imagine being bowed over for 18 years. All you would see is the dust on the ground. That was the predicament of the woman in Luke 13. Dust was all her eyes fell on, all the time, everywhere she went, until she became dust-conscious. Thank God she finally saw the beautiful feet of Jesus, who brought her good news and raised her up.

Now, dust is the devil’s food. The Bible tells us that God cursed the devil to eat dust all the days of his life. (Genesis 3:14) Dust represents death. (Genesis 3:19) The devil wants you to be like him — to fall flat on your belly, crawl and eat dust. To eat dust is to feed on your shortcomings and lack, until you constantly feel that there is so much in your life that you need to clean up. You may not be physically bowed over, but like the woman, you become dust-conscious and life every day is a struggle.

Having a dust-consciousness also affects the way you see others. You look at people’s faults all the time. You point out their shortcomings and rake up their past failures. When you are dust-conscious, you find your relationships robbed of peace and joy.

And if you, like the woman, keep looking at the dust, before long, that inward position of dust-consciousness becomes so entrenched that you become the devil’s food because dust is what he eats. God’s Word describes him as being like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8)

If you don’t want to be devoured by him, then lift your eyes above the dust! Instead of looking at your failures, look to Christ who has delivered you from every defeat. See yourself the way God sees you — righteous and holy in Christ. (Colossians 3:12; 2 Corinthians 5:21) You are not dust because you are not in and of the flesh — you are in and of the Spirit. (Romans 8:9)

My friend, the more you realise who you are in Christ, the more you will straighten up and walk the way God sees you — a new creation with His authority, power and overcoming Spirit!

- feed your FAITH and your doubts will starve -
