GOD LIVES IN ME! I John 4:9,12,17,18 – He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives IN us and his love is made complete In us. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment; In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. New American Standard says – As HE is so also are we in this world!

I AM FREE AND NOT CONDEMNED!Romans 8:1-2 – Therefore, there is now now condemnation for those who are IN Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus, the law of the Spirit who gives life HAS SET YOU FREE from the law of sin and death.
I AM HIS CHILD! I HAVE A PERFECT DADDY SO I DON’T HAVE TO BE AFRAID! Romans 8:14-16 – For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you RECEIVED does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again, rather, the Spirit you RECEIVED brought about your adoption to sonship. And by Him we cry, “ABBA, Father.” The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
THE OLD SELF-SUFFICIENT ME DIED! Romans 6:6 – For we know that our OLD SELF was crucified WITH HIM so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin-because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
I WAS BURIED AND ROSE AGAIN TO NEW LIFE! Romans 6:4 – We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
TRUTH IS WHAT GOD SAYS! REGARDLESS OF HOW I FEEL, BELIEVE OR ACT! GOD IS COMMITTED TO YOU. HE WILL MAKE WHAT IS TRUE IN YOUR SPIRIT (THE REAL YOU DOWN DEEP INSIDE) AND MAKE IT REAL THROUGHOUT YOUR SOUL AND BODY SO THAT OTHER’S CAN SEE AND EXPERIENCE CHRIST IN YOU. THIS IS A LIFE LONG PROCESS CALLED SANCTIFICATION. WHAT YOU BELIEVE ABOUT YOURSELF WILL DETERMINE YOUR BEHAVIOR! ASK GOD TO HELP YOU BELIEVE THE TRUTH OF WHO YOU ARE AND TO HELP YOU WALK CONSISTENTLY IN YOUR NEW IDENTITY. COOPERATE WITH HIM AS HE TRANSFORMS YOUR MIND, WILL AND EMOTIONS.
