Where do you get your Affirmation from?


God gives us the affirmation we are looking for when we do as He asks. Men will give affirmation based on an opinion... which is their perception and is unreliable and can be frustrating to convince. We are not here to please man or be affirmed by him, we are here as Servants of Jesus yes capital ‘S’…. as we are Priests to the most high and living God.

1 Pet 2:9-10

'But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.' NIV

If no one ever noticed our worth and works… does that really change anything for us? If it does we have a problem I think. The thing is, if we are settled and confirmed in our obedience then that confidence says everything for us doesn’t it? Our authority is established in the unseen and the spirit of who we are defeats an enemy and also brings revelation to those who we come in contact with… in the spirit. This is not arrogance but the testimony that speaks louder than words.

Matt 5:13 'You are the SALT of the earth...'

Yet those we meet will ‘know’ that there is more to us than is seen, their inquisitiveness will get the better of them and they won't be able to leave us alone till they find out what makes us tick.

Good thought eh?
