"His Truth" - 05/01/14 - 2 Samuel 5:1-10, 1 Chronicles 11,12
still, he didn't measure up (1 Chronicles 11:21)
They either build up or tear down. We cling to them. We hear them over and over and at times, we are the ones who say them to ourselves. The ugly, dark comments we would never utter to another. Out loud.
How often we berate, belittle, betray, and believe - lies. Lies the world or self has spoken to us. How often we allow those lies to become our "measuring stick", which only serve to tear down or apart.
Our ABBA speaks only The Truth.
His standards are not double and they are firm. Capture His Truth into your hearts. Chew on them. Delight in them. Say them aloud. Look into your eyes and tell yourself - "I am His Beloved".
It is only through Christ and using ABBA's measuring stick that we are able to "measure up".
We do become what we believe.
