Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- it’s got nothing to do with me.
Romans 3:19-20,23-24 NLT
 Obviously, the law applies to those to whom it was given, for its purpose is to keep people from having excuses and to show that the entire world is guilty before God.  For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are.  For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.  Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- the story of who provides for me shapes my story of generosity.
Luke 21:1-4 NLT
 While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box.  Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins.  “I tell you the truth,” Jesus said, “this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them.  For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has.”
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- it is critical that I have a clear strategy around wealth, otherwise I will be seduced into servitude.
Luke 16:9, 13 TPT
 It is important that you use the wealth of this world to demonstrate your friendship with God by winning friends and blessing others…..It is impossible for a person to serve two masters at the same time. You will be forced to love one and reject the other. One master will be despised and the other will have your loyal devotion. It is no different with God and the wealth of this world. You must enthusiastically love one and definitively reject the other.”
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- I know my enemy and his ways.
1 John 2:15-17 TPT
 Don’t set the affections of your heart on this world or in loving the things of the world. The love of the Father and the love of the world are incompatible.  For all that the world can offer us-the gratification of our flesh, the allurement of the things of the world, and the obsession with status and importance-none of these things come from the Father but from the world.  This world and its desires are in the process of passing away, but those who love to do the will of God live forever.
his is the revelation that is shaping my life today- my value to God is placed within me, it never diminishes, it is never tarnished in, or by, my lostness.
Luke 15:8-10 TPT
 Jesus gave them another parable: “There once was a woman who had ten valuable silver coins. When she lost one of them, she swept her entire house, diligently searching every corner of her house for that one lost coin.  When she finally found it, she gathered all her friends and neighbors for a celebration, telling them, ‘Come and celebrate with me! I had lost my precious silver coin, but now I’ve found it.’  That’s the way God responds every time one lost sinner repents and turns to him. He says to all his angels, ‘Let’s have a joyous celebration, for that one who was lost I have found!'”
This is the revelation that is shaping my life today- embracing my sin is how I follow Jesus.
1 John 1:8-9 TPT
 If we boast that we have no sin, we’re only fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time. God is just to forgive us our sins because of Christ, and he will continue to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
This is the revelation that is shaping my life today- the cost of discipleship is high and beautiful.
Luke 14:28,33 TPT
 So don’t follow me without considering what it will cost you. For who would construct a house before first sitting down to estimate the cost to complete it?  Likewise, unless you surrender all to me, giving up all you possess, you cannot be one of my disciples.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- life is not what I see – true life is coming.
2 Peter 3:13-14 TPT
 But as we wait, we trust in God’s royal proclamation to be fulfilled. There are coming heavens new in quality, and an earth new in quality, where righteousness will be fully at home.  So, my beloved friends, with all that you have to look forward to, may you be eager to be found living pure lives when you come into his presence, without blemish and filled with peace.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- my sin does not turn God away, even when I reject His ways.
Luke 13:34 TPT
 O city of Jerusalem, you are the city that murders your prophets! You are the city that pelts to death with stones the very messengers who were sent to deliver you! So many times I have longed to gather your wayward children together around me, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings-but you were too stubborn to let me.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- I am new, I just need to be me!
2 Peter 1:5-8 TPT
 So devote yourselves to lavishly supplementing your faith with goodness, and to goodness add understanding,  and to understanding add the strength of self-control, and to self-control add patient endurance, and to patient endurance add godliness,  and to godliness add mercy toward your brothers and sisters, and to mercy toward others add unending love.  Since these virtues are already planted deep within, and you possess them in abundant supply, they will keep you from being inactive or fruitless in your pursuit of knowing Jesus Christ more intimately.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- I have great value ascribed to me and I am never abandoned.
Luke 12:6-7 TPT
[6-7] “What is the value of your soul to God? Could your worth be defined by an amount of money? God doesn’t abandon or forget even the small sparrow he has made. How then could he forget or abandon you? What about the seemingly minor issues of your life? Do they matter to God? Of course they do! So you never need to worry, for you are more valuable to God than anything else in this world.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- religion deceives us and keeps us from the house of God.
Luke 11:52 TPT
 “You are nothing but hopeless frauds, you experts of religion! You take away from others the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge. Not only do you lock the door and refuse to enter, you do your best to keep others from the truth.”
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- in today’s self-focused culture we need to rediscover a better love story.
1 John 3:16;18TPT
This is how we have discovered love’s reality: Jesus sacrificed his life for us. Because of this great love, we should be willing to lay down our lives for one another……Beloved children, our love can’t be an abstract theory we only talk about, but a way of life demonstrated through our loving deeds.
