Who are you when you’re at home, in your comfort zone? Who are you behind a keyboard? Who are you at work or school? Who are you with your friends, family, strangers?
I am sure you’ve heard the saying you should “practice what you preach”. It feels like a hit to the pride if it’s ever been directed at you, but it actually holds some real value. See, God knows who we are, truly. He knows our inwards most being, He know the things we hide from the public eye, and He knows how we are when were comfortable. He sees us as we truly are.
When we come to God as our true selves and are the truest versions of ourselves with Him it is much easier to be ourselves with the rest of the world.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.Jeremiah 29:11-12
God doesn’t want us to hide. He wants us to have pure integrity by being who He designed us to be in every aspect of our lives. It can take a lot of work to figure out who we are, but when we focus on who God intends us to be we will discover ourselves and become the best version of ourselves wherever we are, no matter who may or may not be watching. We can rest in the confidence that God designed us. He wove every piece of us together and He wants us to honor Him by being who He made us to be.
