Good morning people who celebrate the journey they are on
Here's the next thing I want to say about moving forward:
Accept yourself where you are at
Many Christians, although they have grown and changed, don't accept themselves where they are at. Many Christians live with a daily dissatisfaction with their present spiritual condition. Now the other extreme is spiritual pride, and this is never good. But some of us need to be grateful for where we are in God, and celebrate the truth that He is still leading us forward.
Accepting ourselves where we are at is not the same as accepting unrepentant sin in our lives. We must not accept unrepentant sin, but we must accept ourselves in the process of maturing in God.
While accepting yourself where you are at, it's good to be grateful for where you have come from. God has done some incredibly good things in you! You were once lost and now you are found; you were once dead in sin but now alive in Christ. Praise God for what He has done in you!
While accepting yourself where you are at, it's good to anticipate where God is taking you. Your current position is not your final position - now that's GREAT news! You will keep on growing and changing and maturing, but you must accept yourself on that journey. God does!
"Do you accept yourself where you are at? If not, I pray you will take that step today - it is a faith step so don't wait for feelings or facts - take a step of faith about yourself."
