Identity- WHO ARE YOU?

‘No matter how old (or long) a ‘man’ is (or has lived), without an identity; he is yet to exist’-Sst

Every ‘man’ needs an identity. He needs a name. He needs somewhere to belong. He needs to know who he is…

Have you been called a failure?

Have they told you, you are not good enough?

Have you been called useless?

Or are you like Jacob a ‘Trickster’?

………..

You are not just industrious

You are so classless

You are a bastard child

You are a man without purpose

You are not who the world (devil and sinful people) says you are. You are who God says you are

Have you grown to believe what people said about you- that you just ain’t good enough?

Have you grown to believe the lies others told you- that you will never be better than the present state of your life?

Has your life now become this lie?

Have you believed so much, you are now the lie, such that,

You keep failing

You can’t keep a relationship

You con your way to success

You have become the definition of F.A.K.E

You might have done what people said you did but you are never what people say you are

To understand your identity, you must look to God to reveal. Your identity can only be found in Christ, and in His Word. Here are a few things He’s said about you:

You are born of God… 1 John 5:18

You are fearfully and wonderfully made…Psalm 139:14

You are alive with Christ… Ephesians 2:5

You have the peace of God…Philippians 4:7

You have been set free… Galatians 5:1

You are more than a conqueror… Romans 8:37

You are an overcomer… Revelation 2:11

You are an ambassador… 2 Corinthians 5:20

You are a citizen of a holy nation… Exodus 19:6

You are a chosen generation… 1 Peter 2:9

You are a friend of God… John 15:15

You are the head and not the tail…Deuteronomy 28:13

You are God’s temple… 1 Corinthians 6:19

You are blessed… Ephesians 1:3

You are a peculiar treasure… Exodus 19:5

You are created in the image of God… Genesis 1:27

You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you… Philippians 4:13

You are a son of the Most High God. You have been purchased by the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. You are a joint heir with Christ- a priest of the King of kings. There’s greatness in your bones and in your bloodline… Galatians 4:6-7

PRAYER-

Dear Lord, please ‘help me to see me the way you see me. I see where I am, but you see where I shall be’.

 

What is your identity? What’s that thing that makes you recognizable?
