I have chosen you to know and believe that I am God; to witness that I am able; to taste and see that I am good. As you are made aware of My love for you, the things you have sought after will have little value to you. Lean into Me instead of your insecurities and fears. Your insecurities and fears cause you to strive. In your striving you experience envy, jealousy and selfish ambition. These things breed pretentiousness and hurt those around you. I want you to trust Me instead. I have plans for you. You were chosen especially for good works. Good works that have already been prepared for you to do. You are secure in Me. The doors I open no-one can close the doors I close no-one can open. I have told you these things that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but take heart I have overcome the world. ~Jesus.
Philippians 2:3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.
Philippians 3:8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes through the law, but that which is through faith in Christ- the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.
