How often do we take time to reflect on this simple question? Yet this is one of the most important things to keep reminding ourselves. Internal security is developed by taking time to reflect on who we are deep in our soul. Who you really are is not your job title, how much money you make, the looks you wear, what things you have, who you have around you etc. Who you are is that person that is lays in bed at night, can’t fall asleep because of what you carry within your spirit. Who you really are is that person that sits among very many people and still feel empty inside. Or who you are the that person that lays in bed and sleeps like a baby because you don’t carry any cares, your heart is free and full of peace.
We are spirit beings living in a physical body and a physical world. What we need to pay most attention to is our inner self. It is easy to present a certain image to everyone around but the truth is, you are who you find within you when no one else is around you. Our only audience should be God. One Vote is all it takes to give you the security that no man can take away from you. When you are secure in your spirit, you don’t have a need to look a certain way before people, you don’t need a lot of money to feel better about yourself, or convince anyone to believe you, or like you etc. When you are secure in who you are, you just have to be who you are in the sight of God alone when no one else is around you. The good news is, we can choose who we want to be deep in our soul.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
