Hi, again! 😊
You notice certain traits in your life and you just accept them, finding solace in saying ‘this is me, this is who I am.’
Any little thing, you snap in anger. 😒
Your friend is celebrating something big, you coil in jealousy.😳
When you’re easily provoked, you resort to using bad words. When your Spirit convicts you, you end up saying, this is me. This is my temperament. 🤦
Then the new life you have in Christ is what? The new fruits God’s Spirit brought came with should now be tossed away? 🤷
God wants to help you become truly free, but maybe the first step is you not accepting fruits Jesus died to free you from. The first step is you saying it isn’t you and trusting God to help you live the life he purposed for you.
You’re not the angry person who’s always walking with an angry scrowl, because Jesus came with a better fruit : love.
Choose love. It’s a decision.🙏
You’re not the jealous guy who hides behind his congratulatory message, because you believe that since Jesus loves you so much, the fact that you don’t have it now, means you don’t need it now.
Jesus came with a better fruit: faith. Choose to walk in faith, trusting God and holding His mighty hands through it all.
You watch your speech no matter how angry or offended you are, because you know the book of James says good water and dirty water do not flow from the same Spring.
Choose the kind of water you want, I hope you choose the pure one and drink from it with consistency.
See, for every negative trait the devil wants to impose on you and make you tag normal, God in His mercies, made Jesus die for better fruits.
Please choose God’s definition of you. We want to be past this phase, so God can trust us with meat and not still with milk like we’re just newly converts.
There is more in Christ.
We’ve come to the end of today’s blog post, thank you for taking this walk with me.

Have there ever been times when you accepted unhealthy traits about yourself, what did you do to get out the situation?
Thank you again, I am Idara.
You’re loved! ❤️
