How To Find Identity In God

Have you ever watched a time travel film where the main character keeps going back in time to try and fix things, but when he comes back to the present, he’s made things worse? That’s what the past two years have felt like. It feels like we have jumped from one crisis to another.

As the COVID pandemic eases, a war erupts. A turbulent world, turned upside down by calamities, contagions and conflict. The world is silently crying out for a people to be filled with the Spirit, a people who get their strength and power from God to live in a way that conquers circumstances and doesn’t cower beneath them.

While we’ve all be deeply touched and changed by the adversity of this season. Like the disciples of Jesus our hearts have been formed and fashioned to face and fight even the hardest of situations. We aren’t alone, we have God on our side. And we cannot ever lose sight of that truth because it holds the secret to our true identity.

To do all God has for us in this life, we must know who we are. And our uncertainty about our identity is precisely why the enemy’s lies trip us up. John 10:10 spills the enemy’s deceitful mission, but it also reveals God’s ultimate plan for us when we believe in Him and who He’s made us to be, “The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

A child of God is our identity. We are in the direct lineage of the King of the universe. No lie of the enemy has the power to steak that from us. And because of that truth, our calling is clear. Our calling is ti know Him, and our mission is to show Him.

It doesn’t matter what ,it’s the world throws at you, the truth is that you are worthy of salvation because He saved you. You are worthy of love because Jesus loves you. You are worthy of more in this world because He empowers you.

We can partner with God and press into the future He has for us, no matter what that looks like, no matter what adversity comes our way, no matter what obstacles we face, no matter what.

John 10:7-10
