This morning I was really wrestling with this spirit of insignificance. It lead me to a book that Ben left me from his time down at Bethel. The supernatural ways of Royalty~Discovering your rights and privileges of being a son or daughter of God. Right at the beginning, chapter 1 "The Plight of Pauperhood" ~ The earth cannot bear up under a pauper when he becomes a king.~
I feel a huge part of my identity that God is calling to come up higher. The first chapter is all about value why some have it and some don't.
So cool, there is the example in the story of Moses and why he had to grow up in Pharaoh's house! He was born to lead the Israelites out of slavery. Moses had to learn to be a prince and not have a slave's mentality. A leader that is in slavery internally cannot free those who are in slavery eternally. Moses had the first 40 years of his life being raised that he was significant, it was that significance that he stood on for the last 40 years of his life in the wilderness. Because Moses knew he was significant he had confidence. Unfortunately, in the 40 year period that he tried to help them there slave mentality kept them from understanding where he was coming from. Their mind-sets were in complete conflict.
I love it that God comes to you to show you something that you have always done and lets you know that it is no longer consistent with the person God says "I AM"
Well I didn't get raised in the palace! LOL I love that in my relationship with God it can just keep going as long as I keep walking with him.
I HAVE VALUE! Feels like rubbing a cat backwards! lol But I need to get to a point where I actually believe those words and it just starts with a seed!
You have Value!!
Love you most! Lynette
