There is an NLP practice called “Circle of Excellence”, whereby one imagines a coloured circle and fills it with all good, desired emotions and outcomes and then steps into that circle to be thus energised, inspired and transformed by the desired emotions…
It is a useful and powerful practice, but this morning I found myself creating a new circle, filled with the truth of who God says I am.
Who is He? And who does He say that I am? I need to remember these powerful truths and let them “transform [me], by the renewing of [my] minds” (Romans 12:2)
I invite you to draw your own circle and fill it with what God says about you, and when you feel discouraged, or weak, or disappointed, or insecure – step into that circle and allow His truth to wash over you and fill you with the power of His Spirit of Truth.
So what did I write in my green (for life) circle?
I am –
Daughter of the Most High God
Beloved of God
A new Creation
A sinner saved by Grace
In God’s family
A Princess, belonging to the King
Born of the Spirit
Not forsaken nor alone
Created in God’s image
Called by name
The Bride of Christ
A holy priest of God
Living by faith
Loved by God
Living life to the full
Promised eternal life
Living abundant life
Not coming under judgment
Sheltered in Christ
Given authority over the works of the devil
Empowered to do ‘even greater things than these’
A fisher of men
Sent out in His name
Bearing fruit in Christ
Filled with His Spirit, Grace and Power
Confident to ask whatever I wish in His name
I have passed from death to life
I have faith, hope, love, joy, peace, patience, self-control
God fights for me
He is for me
The Kingdom of God is within me
God dwells in me
I have everything I need for life and godliness
He will never leave me nor forsake me
He never sleeps nor slumbers
All His promises are YES and AMEN in Jesus
His yolk is easy and His burden is light
He takes away all my diseases, my sins and my shame
He is with me, in me, behind me, before me, above me and below me
In victory and in disappointment, He IS with me
In my Father’s house, there’s a place for me
He will come again in Glory, and take me to be with Him
I will see Him face to face
He has already won the Victory over sin and death…
These are some of the truths in my circle. Who HE IS is the inner and outer foundation of that circle!
Who is He? Draw another circle with praise for WHO HE IS – for He is ALL in ALL in ALL.
In your victory and in your disappointment God the Almighty is with you.
So be strong and courageous; pour out your heart like water; be transformed by the renewing of your mind; and stand on His promise to call you for a hope and a purpose. Be bold. Stand firm.
Share with me how making and stepping into your circle empowers you.
