A Confident Heart Devotional: 60 Days to Stop Doubting Yourself by Renee Swope, Â©2013
As I read the first day and see "When I say--God says," I am immediately reminded of Romans 12:2. ~Who am I following after? ~What I may hear others say? ~What I see others do that I would like to emulate? ~Who forms my opinion of me that I walk away with? Ready to join 60 days to stop doubting yourself? Romans 12:2, The Message: Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Because we are not cookie-cutters, God's Word applies to us specifically for His path for us ~ to walk alongside and follow Him. The opposite of "specific" is "vague." Beginning, the first step to seek God in the areas of my weakness and His strength as I read these daily devotions. When I say, "My life is too busy. I don't have time to spend with God." God says, "Come with Me to a quiet place and get some rest for your heart, mind, and soul." ~*Powerful Promises*~ Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest." (Mark 6:31)
