Why You Keep Struggling!

Does what we do determine who we are or does who we are determine what we do? This question sounds confusing, doesn’t it? Allow me to state it differently. Do looks, status, degree, etc., determine our value or does the Truth of God’s Word -Specifically our identity in Christ, determine our value? The correct answer is the Truth of God’s Word determines our value.
Everyone must come to grips with this issue, at some time in their life and choose God’s way or life will be an endless struggle of performance, performance, performance. Stated differently, our emotions, circumstances, struggles, and heartaches swill mold us instead of the Truth of God’s Word.
Many of my struggles to overcome sixteen years of depressiveness centered around the fact of self-effort. I was attempting to become somebody God had already said I was. How could I have been so blind? Jesus accomplished it all. He settled the performance issue once and for all.
Ephesians 1:6 says that as believers we are “…accepted in the beloved.”
Also, Colossians 2:10 states, “and ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principalities and power.”
In other words, God accepts us in Jesus apart from performance. This truth enable me to walk free from sixteen years of depressiveness. Thank you, Lord for your performance-less victory.
Friend’s, God’s performance won the victory, so stop striving to become what you are already, accepted by Him and in so doing, your freedom is assured!
