Cinderella Stories: Who Do You Think You Are? 

This question is one of the most annoying questions on God’s green earth. Many fights have begun because of this question. However, I can’t escape the fact that it is a very important question, and the answer can change a life.

Who Do You Think You Are? 

People, ladies, this is kind of the root of a lot of the upheavals in your life. It’s not yet about who you are, but about who you think you are. 

Romans 12:3 (paraphrased): 

Take care not to think of yourself in a different way than you really are, but hold to the Lord’s perspective…

See, I’m coming to discover that when we say, Do not think more highly of yourself than you should, many people don’t really get the drift. It’s not about you thinking of yourself in the most unflattering state ever, as if that’s translation for humility. Also, it’s not about you gliding into your serene state of supremacy where no one else is as good as you. That’s equally disgusting. 
God, who is the Master of Perfection, made you. And the way Yoruba people laud him, you’d think He could never make a mistake! 

Oh. Wait. He didn’t make a mistake…or did He? I mean, after all, He made you… And you keep going on and on about how there must be something wrong with you.

Child, the things you think are a mistake about yourself are the exact reason why God made you the way He did, and called you GOOD

Philemon 1:6 (paraphrased):

…that you will experience more in your relationship with God as you begin to see yourself through His eyes and accept what you see… 

Who Do You Think You Are?

A lousy friend?

A loud brat?

An inconsiderate psycho person with mood swings?

A weak girl who lets people walk all over her? 

An overbearing person who drives everyone away? 

Think again.
