“See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.” (Isa. 49:16 NKJV)
Recognizing who you are in Christ is the game changer. You are not an ordinary person because you were created by God for a purpose (Eph. 2:10). When you are able to recognize who God has called you to be, this revelation cannot but change your behavior, the way you think and even your attitude to life.
The ultimate plan of God, is for us to become sons of God (John 1:12) in order to walk in the power and glory that God has made available for us. The word of God is meant to transform our lives. It is not God’s plan that we should struggle. Even in the mist of our challenges, He has promised us an escape route (1 Cor. 10:13).
Despite our human frailty, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Phil. 4:13). God has not only sealed us but He has given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee (2 Cor. 1:22). For all the promises of God is Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us (2 Cor. 1:20).
We have been bought at a price (1 Cor. 6:20), our life is therefore no longer ours. The life we now live is through Christ (Gal. 2:20). This is who we are. We must never forget who God says we are. We are defined by the word of God and not by any image we have about ourselves, feelings, sickness, circumstances or even by the job we do, for we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works (Eph. 2:10).
To succeed in God, we must follow the strait gate and the narrow way (Matt. 7:14). We must realize that as citizens of the Kingdom we are funded by the resources of the Kingdom of God and not by the world, to do otherwise would amount to following the multitude to do evil (Ex. 23:2). To reject the word of God as regards who God says we are, is an evil report (Num. 13:33). Evil is anything that is contrary to God’s word.
Until we recognize who we are in Christ, not much will happen in our lives (Judg. 6:11-12). We must be prepared to change our thinking and mindset in order to be able to identify with who God says we are.
Find out who God says you are (Isa. 55:8) and stay there. Until you submit to the word, the things that you desire from the Kingdom of God will not come to pass. It is now up to you to decide what you want to influence your identity.
