“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Prov. 23:7)
Our thoughts about ourselves are often diametrically opposed to the truth of who we really are in Christ. Many times we evaluate ourselves based on our looks, our educational level, our finances, who are spouse is or if we are married or single, our job or career and many other things. All such external matters have nothing to do with our true identity. Such evaluations will almost always deceive us.
Only when you agree with God’s declarations about you will you be thinking correctly.
