The progression toward oneness with God leaves you absent of yourself. Lost in Him.
As you move more fully into what God sees and what He desires, you’ll no longer be concerned with what you lack or how you’ve failed. As you walk with Him day by day, you will come to see yourself through His truths.
Afraid that you can’t get past your past?
Getting lost in intimacy with God will assure your heart that “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
Fearful that you can’t overcome a sinful habit?
Intimacy with God will bring you to believe that your “old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin” (Romans 6:67).
Think the circumstances of your life are hopeless?
Intimacy with God will bring you to know that “the Lord will fulfill his purpose for [you]; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever” (Psalm 138:8).
