“ The “need to become” is a life of striving, centered on self occupation. The Christian life, hooked on “I am” is anchored on true rest in the finished work of Christ. We are not striving to be righteous or holy and neither are we trying to be victorious or healed. Christ has become our righteousness, holiness, redemption, healing and victory through our union with Him. The Christian who is sick and weak in their bodies are not weak and sick people trying to become healed and strong. They are strong and already healed saints in Christ, that Satan is trying to make them feel as weak and sick. In your born again spirit you are already strong and healed through the stripes of Jesus Christ. You don’t strive for healing or God’s attention through self work; you receive the manifestation of power and healing in your body through faith. Stop trying to become and rest in Christ Jesus for what He has already accomplished for you.“
God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. [1 Corinthians 1:30 NLT]
He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness; you have been healed by His wounds. [1 Peter 2:24 HCSB]

He that kneweth not sin became sinful
He that kneweth sin was made righteous
Have I not made thee in my likeness?
Shall I measure thee, Oh fairest among all?
To the societal standards of significance
Thy beauty surpass them all, on every scale
The dark seasons of time changeth thee not
The flower fades the grass withers but thou art
Completely complete and wholly whole, within
Art thou not a reflection of the true essence of life?
Just as I am so art thou in this blemished world
A salt to preserve
A light to shine
Ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust;

I don’t know what your pain is today
I don’t know how exactly the odds are
I just want you to know that you are in the plans of God
His thoughts towards you today is love,
Crazy love, embedded in eternal purpose
No matter how steep or crooked life road may look like
The valley may seem too dark and obscure, to navigate through
A valley of shadow of death!
A valley filled with ferocious beasts
Beasts that steals courage from your pilgrim soul
Fear no evil, for the Lord is with you
Are you weary, worn out and burnt out?
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors we are!
His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Maybe you are struggling with an incurable disease
Debt, depression, discouragement or some dark secret,
All things shall work together for your good
There is hope, only believe
There is abundance of help for you, stretch and receive it
Don’t throw in the towel, keep on moving forward
Probably nobody understands you at this moment.
You have been blackmailed, betrayed and rejected
Rejected for something you didn’t do or did
Your self-worth and integrity has been muddied
Shame is written on the walls of your heart like graffiti on a city street
Receive forgiveness from where you messed up
Stand tall, tuck your feet on the ground, square up your shoulders
Don’t take matters into your own hands, for being treated wrongfully
The battle is the Lords; He will fight for you and restore you
Don’t be afraid. Take courage. I am here! (Mathew 14:27 NLT)
