The way we perceive ourselves is different than the way others see us. Our understanding of ourselves, others and GOD is narrow and undoubtedly wrong. Ephesians 1:18, "having the eyes of your hearts enlightened..." Have you ever spent a lot of time planning, preparing, and then giving something special to someone, only to be taken back a little as they didn't see the "total value" of the love that went with it? Perhaps we don't really comprehend the greatness of "Truth" and GOD'S love as we resort to our weak and distorted mind to view only a portion of things. Do we think of our inheritance of HIS great riches as "streets of gold" or "staircases of diamonds"? Or do we think of HIS great riches as being one with GOD, to know HIS thoughts, power over evil spirits, enlarged and exalted conceptions of GOD and realizing Heaven is where GOD is! Do we really have the understanding that our eternal life begins now? Do we accept the immeasurable greatness of HIS power to be IN HEAVEN NOW?
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
