If asked this moment, “Who are you?” What would your answer be? Can you clearly articulate who you are and what your values are?
Your sense of identity is one of the most powerful tools to living a successful life, you must know who you are, not what people or circumstances has called you.
Beyond earthly titles and designations, it is important have an accurate picture of who God says you are. We see this concept of identity many times in the Bible. To Jacob, the angel said, ‘’Who are you and what is your name?” Yet the angel must have already known who Jacob was. So why did he ask?
Usually, when God asks such a question, it isn’t because he doesn’t already know the answer, He wants to test your understanding. To move to the next level, you must first recognise where you are and make the necessary progress required to move up.
Jesus tested his disciples by asking, ‘’Who do men say that I am?’’ And they gave him all kinds of answers. Boaz said, ‘’who are you?’’ and the woman said, ‘’I’m Ruth your maidservant; take your maidservant under your wings because you are a close relative.’’
Don’t let your life be controlled or dominated by guilt, past mistakes and other people. God didn’t create you to be controlled by other people. He created us to be led by his Spirit.
The Holy Spirit gently guides us and expects us to respond to his leading. Don’t let your life and values to be defined by what other people have said about you.
Know who you are in Christ.
No matter where you have been and what you have done, renew your mind and have an accurate understanding of your new identity.
I pray that you receive a fresh revelation of your true identity in Jesus name.
In His Love
