Sometimes many of us have forgotten who we are. We fail to worship God for who He is and what He has done, so we no longer define ourselves vertically.
Instead, we seek after horizontal replacement identities that are tempting but leave us empty. We battle “identity amnesia” and it leaves us unfilled.
The Cure Is Worship- When we truly worship God more than an activity, then we can begin to truly know who we are.
Vertical identity is rooted in worshiping God as Creator!
David captures it beautifully in (Psalm 139:13-16). They’re such powerful and amazing words. Every part of the fabric of your personhood was carefully knit together by God’s creative hands.
There was no part of you that was hidden from him. There were no accidents, no glitches, no thoughtless moments. Just like David, you too were “fearfully and wonderfully” made.
The color of your eyes, the shape of your body, your intellectual and physical gifts, your hair, your voice, your personality, the color of your skin, the size of your feet – everything!
All of your hardwiring is the result of God’s glorious creative ability. The “package” that created you comes from His hand.
