This morning while reading Dr James Richards book “Moving your invisible Boundaries.” I had no idea my next lesson in the journey course was going to touch on the heart. That is what I was reading about this morning in chpt 2 titled Defining the Heart.
You are only comfortable living a life within the bounds of who you believe yourself to be. Dr. Richards
Proverbs 4:23 Guard your heart with all diligence, for out of it is the wellspring of life.
Why would every boundary in your life come from your heart? Simple! If the heart is the real you, you are only comfortable living a life within the bounds of who you believe yourself to be. The skills I learn, the information I ingest, and the training I complete will do little to move me beyond my current circumstances, unless I change the beliefs of my heart … change my sense of identity. This is why many people can help others, but not themselves. They pass along the information to those who will believe and apply it, yet they do nothing with it themselves. Dr. Richards Moving your invisible boundaries.
Jay Stringer ” your identity is an ongoing process of discovering and refining who you really want to be. God gave you your heart and you will be restless until you discover whats truly inside of you.” From the video Futility in episode 10 The journey course.
All of this brings us back to Identity. Who does God say you are?
It is time to remove the veil and surrender your opinion on how you see yourself.
Mat 16:18 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
I submit to you to ask the question, Lord who do you say that I am? And when you ask you will know.
