Have you ever thought to yourself “Who am I?” or “Who am I supposed to be?”
But you are not like that, for you are chosen people you are royal priest, a holy nation, Gods very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he has called you into His wonderful light.(1 Peter 2:9)
We have to quit relying on what we THINK God is saying, and put on the mind Christ, so we KNOW what his true perspective is. True perspective comes out of a relationship with Him, an intimate relationship with Him.
You may not notice, but there is a war over YOUR identity. Imagine what it would be like to wake up and not know who you are. Imagine there being no trace of your identity. That is what Satan is trying to do right now. If he can destroy what God intended you to be, he is succeeding and when you believe those lies about yourself it hurts he heart of God. Some of Satan’s tools include the opinions of others, our anger, and the media.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.( Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
Our identity and our plans should always line up with His word, not our thoughts.We are ALL Gods people, we ALL have an identity in Christ.
Like Paul, he had his identity in him while he was murdering Christians, but then he experienced God on the road to Damascus (Acts 22:6)
Christ was crucified on the cross over 2,000 years ago; it was finished. It is our responsibility and our choice to receive forgiveness and complete salvation and our authority in Jesus now.
I pray you all are awaken to your true identity and do not let your past mistakes hold you back from knowing your true purpose.
