We Are All Born With The Innate Question, “Who am I?”
God alone knows the full extent of your unique identity and He longs for you to walk freely in just being ‘you’.
“O you afflicted one, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems, and lay your foundations with sapphires.” (Isaiah 54:11)
When we receive Jesus as the Savior, we are also given a new foundational identity. But the choice to walk in this new identity remains up to us. So God reminds us (Isaiah 54:11), that this means letting Him rebuild our lives in the deepest places of our heart.
I can continue to say, ‘I am a hurting person destined to live in the broken-ness of my past’, (how the enemy wants me to remain trapped), or ‘I am a covenant child of God being made whole and walking into my true destiny’, (how God wants me to move forward).
Renouncing the old identity and declaring the new can be a powerful step in agreeing with God for the process He wants in bringing healing into our lives.
This new identity is not necessarily how we yet feel, but it is how God now sees us. Try declaring it today!
