Something I find myself often telling my kids as they get older is, “Remember Whose you are!” I am not sure when or why this started, but it is something that has stuck. Then, one day, I was telling myself the same thing. I was going up against a hard person and situation, and I did not want to respond in the flesh. I wanted to respond with the wisom from above and be a sower of peace, but I knew the flesh would fight against me. My temptation would be to forget I am a new man and that I now live in the Spirit. I might, in the heat of the moment, forget the Spirit is willing and the flesh is weak, even though it feels so strong. Do you ever feel this way? When I get embarrassed, get bad news, get my feelings hurt, or just simply don’t understand what is going on around me, I sometimes forget this world is not my home. It can be easy to forget I serve a risen Saviour who has already overcome the world, and that with His grace, I can respond in peace, be quick to listen, slow to hear, and slow to anger. It is not easy!!! But, I have found that remembering Whose I am, can sometimes be all I need to do.
Philippians 3: 12-14 “Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
