10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.-Colosians 2:10
Thoughts and feelings of saying I am not capable, not good enough, having low self-esteem, and I could go on and on and on. These thoughts and feelings are the lies the world and the enemy sells to people to steal their joy in Christ and distract them from fulfilling their destined purposes in life.
In the context of this verse, Paul was writing to the Colossians to strengthen their faith in the truth of the Gospel that in Christ that they need not be circumcised to be fully accepted in Christ. But by believing in and accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior they were saved and made whole in Him.
And you are complete in Him – The word COMPLETE stands out in the verse to assure believers that in Christ we are made whole. There are many times that one could look in the society that they live in and compare their lives to the standards and settle in intimidation because they do not meet such standards. The world has set standards in the minds for most people in the way they should view success or fulfillment and so the inability to reach such standards makes them feel that they are not whole or complete.
Beloved, do not allow the world to set the standard for fulfillment in your life, the word of God reminds us that we are complete in Christ. In the context of the verse, the Colossians were confused if they had to be circumcised to be fully accepted in Christ to live up the standards the Jews had set, but Paul reminds them of the truth that COMPLETENESS is in Christ alone. In the same manner, many believers are in despair because they cannot seem to attain the standards the world has set for success or fulfillment. Please let the word of God resound in your hearts and minds that YOU ARE COMPLETE IN CHRIST. Having Christ cannot be compared to all the accomplishments or pleasures that this life can give, in Him we are whole, fulfilled and redeemed.
Christ is the head of all principalities and power, there is none that can be compared to Him. Dear one, there is no need to fear in your life. We have it all in Christ, there is nothing more or less outside of Him. I have come to embrace and truly experience this truth that I am complete in Him and I live daily pressing on in this assurance.
I pray this morning that the power of this truth in the word of God will remove all doubts, intimidation, fears and all the lies in your heart and fill you with this great truth that you are complete in Christ. In Christ, you are more than a conqueror, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world, In His presence, there is the fullness of joy. Seek fulfillment and joy in Christ and forsake the deception of the world and enemy, let Christ be enough for you always.
May God bless you.
