We often hear that it’s important to know who we are and whose we are. So today, I challenge us and ask, do you know who you are? I mean really who are you? Not what you do, but who are you? Who is it that the Word of God declares that you are?
Why is this so important? Well in order to truly embrace and walk in your God ordained purpose, you must first know who God declares that you are. See the enemy knows who you are, but he is determined to do everything in his power to hinder you from knowing who you are. He’s trying his best to derail you and distract you because he knows that once you truly understand who you are in Christ, that you become dangerous because you become a threat to the kingdom of darkness!! See, once you truly embrace who you are then you will also begin to understand your purpose.
If we know nothing else, we must know that we are God’s creations and He loved us so much that He sent His only Son to die for us. He created each and every one of us on purpose, with purpose and for a purpose. He created you to bring Him GLORY!
But remember, we each have a very real enemy who will go to great lengths to keep you from embracing the TRUTH about who you are in Christ. One of his greatest lies is that you don’t have worth and that you aren’t important. The devil comes but to kill, steal and destroy and he wants to convince you that you are defeated, but the TRUTH of God’s Word declares that YOU ARE MORE THAN A CONQUEROR!
Don’t fall prey to the lies of the enemy. God’s Word declares the TRUTH of who we are in Him. Use God’s Word to combat the lies of the enemy. Saturate yourself with the TRUTH of God’s Word and pray and ask God to help you believe everything that HE has declared about you. Speak the TRUTHS of who God declares you are over yourself daily and trust God to help you embrace them as TRUTH for your life.
