Happy and blessed Monday!
Remember that “Me” syndrome that I have mentioned before? Well, it’s still alive and well. Typically, we think of that syndrome as being boastful and maybe a bit selfish. Sometimes though, it’s the opposite. There may be a lack of self-confidence, unfounded fears and doubts about who you really are. This affects our attitude and our relationships with others.
So, who do you think you are? If you base that on what others say about you, it isn’t necessarily based on facts. The only opinion needed here is who God says you are.
What Does God Say About Me?
- You are loved.
- You are worthy and valuable.
- You are made new & full of the Spirit.
- You are transforming.
- You are his child & his witness.
So, with this information in your mind and heart, Now, who do you think you are? It’s when we base our identity in God that we can truly grow and fulfill God’s purpose for our lives.
Who do you think you are?
When you approach a task, a relationship, or an opportunity—and you think about who you are and what you’re capable of doing—what words come to mind? Are they words that display confidence, hope, trust, and strength? Or fear, doubt, pride, or insecurity?
What we tell ourselves every day matters. If we believe something about our identity that isn’t true, then we will struggle to believe what God says about us when He reveals it to us.
Truths are unchanging. They don’t depend on what you do, what you’ve done, or who you want to be. Truths are not self-help mantras or cliché sayings. They are based entirely on God’s Word and what He says about you. While there will always be areas of life where you’ll need to grow, how God views you and what He says about you doesn’t change because God affirms who you are, not just what you do.
That’s why, when you root your identity in Him by declaring Bible-based truths over yourself, you will begin to see yourself the way He sees you—and this will influence the way you treat people, situations, opportunities, and events around you.
