estimation

I heard another person say something this week, that I just can not get out of my head.  I am not going to state it exactly the way this person did, but the essence of his thought will be there.

As people, we completely overestimate our abilities and position outside of Jesus Christ.  We overstate our character and our holiness.  We act like we have more power than we really do.  We minimize sin.  And the list could continue.  But this next part hit me like Ray Lewis making a play on 3rd and 1.  We totally underestimate who we are once we are in Christ.  We are more than conquerors.  We have more power than we understand.  We are God’s workmanship and he does not make junk.  We are God’s kids and we have his inheritance and riches.  We are so much more than we understand in Christ.  Your potential in Jesus is off the charts.  Believe it…

  1. Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift of Jesus Christ!! And for His Word which tells me these very things. Thankfully He only unfolds them a little at a time as I need them, otherwise I think my brain would explode!!
