revelations of truth

The LORD is good.

I long for everything in my life to reflect that statement. That no matter the situation or circumstance, my heart cries that the LORD is good. I've been on this truth kick lately and I can tell the Lord has been waiting quite a while to teach me to fall in love with His truth. It's funny how He has put different people, meetings, and situations in my life the last two months that have pointed me wholeheartedly to searching out His truth. I have learned to depend on that TRUTH and that it is vital to everything.

Early in January I ventured to Atlanta to attend Passion 2010. In my family group, we were talking about how valuable it is to memorize scripture. One guy said that in memorizing scripture, we literally turn our brains into truth. He said some mumbo-jumbo about the neurons and atoms, but the initial thought was profound. To actually turn our flesh into truth rocked my world. From that point the Lord slowly started teaching me what truth is all about.

The Lord recently gave me the opportunity to struggle with something that brought out a lot of dark lies from my past. In all the lies that I had believed for so long, the Lord revealed to me the vitality of knowing the truth of what Christ did for us. I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. Therefore my identity is found IN CHRIST alone. I am no longer a slave to sin, but am MADE RIGHTEOUS IN CHRIST. I have to daily repeat truth to myself, but I'm starting to finally believe it. I am IN CHRIST. I am a DAUGHTER OF GOD. I am a CO-HEIR WITH CHRIST. I am a SAINT. I am SEATED WITH CHRIST IN HEAVEN . I am FREE. I have AUTHORITY IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS. If this doesn't blow your mind, I don't know what could.

Rest in His truth tonight.
