You do know because you've read and heard about the great potentials that make up your existence.
Then how long will it take for the manifestation and exhibition of the knowledge of who you are? is the question many believers in the salvation of Jesus Christ need to answer.
2 Timothy 1: 9; Who has saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,Severally, we have been told; we are a product of what we believe. Because if you do believe, you'll live it.
How many times have you read and quoted those promising and life changing scriptures?
Countless times yet no reflection of any?
Why is that?
That's the question all those who claim to put their trust in Lord should answer because what you read determines the life you lead.
There's always more to reading and quoting scriptures. The depth of understanding of what you quote that makes you outstanding which can only be received by all who subject themselves to the ministration of the Holy Spirit. Job 11:6; And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.
How many times have you listened to others great testimony and wonder when will you have such to share?
It is simple. When you can totally be dependent on God.
You have to be in with God or out on your own. He said in Revelation 3:20 When I knock let me in, He didn't say come out and join me. (Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me).
This is so because, when men are busy being carried away with the outward appearance of a man, I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings, Jeremiah 17:10; The outward appearance could be deceitful however, it is also a reflection of the wares stored up in the inner man. A beautiful mind (soul) is priceless. May the Lord help you and me to stay beautiful in and out and bring our potentials to full existence to bless His name in Jesus name. Amen. Cheers!
