How we define our identity is where true peace and contentment can be found. It’s easy to allow ourselves to be characterized by the talk of man if we’re not careful, but the words spoken by people to convince us who we are, are rarely grounded in truth. They’re fickle and too easily influenced by emotion.
There’s freedom in the identity we’ve been assigned by God. Who He says we are NEVER changes. It doesn’t shift based on His feelings. It’s not influenced by our social media following. There’s no failure or success that can make it budge. It’s not affected by the number on the scale. And it certainly won’t waver based on how we feel about ourselves.
Our identity is covered in His perfect peace.
You can either choose to believe who people say you are OR you can lay claim to the identity you’ve inherited through His sovereignty and perfect love. You are far more than someone’s opinion and so much greater than your circumstances.
You are loved.
You are worthy.
You are chosen.
You are full of goodness.
You are a child of God.
“You are for me,
Not against me,
I am who you say I am.
I’m a child of God,
yes I am.”
