"Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; and Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered." (Psalm 40:5)
Who am I? this is a question everyone asks. It is a life shaping, identity revealing question. How you answer this question determines your identity, your testimony, and your future.
if you don’t know who you are, then you are vulnerable to other people telling you who you are. You are vulnerable to the lies of the devil who would gladly label you. We make life choices and decisions based on how we see ourselves, and what we believe about ourselves. Some are paralyzed and unable to move forward in life simply because they don’t see themselves the way God sees them.
Remember this truth: You are who God say you are, and no one else has a vote in the matter. Your faith in Jesus must always be in the driving position in your life, not your color, your race, your history, your background, or your culture. You are first and foremost a follower of Jesus Christ. This is your identity and everything in your life flows from who you are.
You might not realize this, but there is a spiritual war going on over your identity. Satan cannot create anything. Only God can create. Satan has never created anything. Satan can only pervert, distort, or destroy. So what he likes to do is take what God has created for good and pervert it, distort it, or destroy it.
You are not defined by:
• Your past
• Relationship status
• Job status
• Car you drive
• Color of your skin
• Home you live in
• # of Facebook friends
• Financial status
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
The old identity is gone. You have received a new one based on what Jesus has done for you. You belong to him, and that changes everything.
Today’s Challenge: Believe this truth: Jesus has established your identity. You belong to Him. He purchased your salvation with a great price. You are in the family of God. Let this identity, as a follower of Jesus, give you strength, and confidence, and courage, as you follow his purpose for your life.
