WHO ARE YOU REALLY?



It is so important to recognize who you really are in Jesus and what God has and continues to say about you. There is a reason why we must know what God says about us because Satan wants nothing more than for you to question what God has already said. If you do not know what God says about you, you will believe what the devil and the world says about you. Do you understand how much freedom is on the line here? Insecurities and fear will be rightly and boldly stomped out if you accept the word of God! Having the knowledge about your identity in God will give you a whole new perspective on every aspect of your life. The Bible is full of words, stories, and letters about how God sees you and how much he loves you. You are loved! Before you ever choose to follow and love Christ, he loved you first. Jesus came down from the right hand of God willing to die for you! Out of love for you, Christ died! He suffered and died so that you wouldn't have to. 

"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends" John 15:13 

Before you were even born God knew you, chose you, wanted you, and loved you. 

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations" Jeremiah 1:5 

God doesn't just want people who go to church, He wants the lost, the sad, the broken, the lonely, the ugly, the mess, the fragile, the hurting, the bad. He wants everyone, He wants it all! God wants you, He has chosen you, you are so valuable to Him. God wants you just as you are right now! 

"... just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons (and daughters) by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He made us accepted in the Beloved" Ephesians 1:4



God made you, He formed you with great detail and no mistake. He made you complete, He made you whole. He made you so He could love you and you could love him. No matter how the world sees you or how you see yourself or feel about yourself, when God sees you, He sees his masterpiece! You are enough just as you are. Only Jesus can satisfy your heart to be seen as beautiful.

"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well" Psalm 139:14



The Bible says God has great plans for you! 

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 

You are NOT to look to the world for guidance. You were NOT made to look the way the world looks or seek what the world seeks. You are chosen with a great mission, great calling, great purpose! God chooses the humble and broken people to use for His kingdom and glory, NOT the proud. 



You are Gods most treasured prize. He wants to protect you, guide you, and embrace you. If you believe that Jesus died to save you (that He is your savior), and that He was resurrected, defeating death, and you repent of your past and believe you are forgiven, then you are adopted into His family, belonging to God forever. You are God's heir and Jesus' co-heir. 

"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together" Romans 8:16-17 



My prayer for you.. Father God, I thank you for leading your child to this post. I pray Lord that you give them understanding of what they truly mean to you and how much you love them. Embrace them Father God, embrace them with the love they've never seen before. I pray that your heart receives a overflowing wave of love and trust for God and His promises. Father break any stronghold this world and the devil has on them and show them what they mean to you now in Jesus mighty name, Amen.



You are dangerous to the enemy when you believe what God says about you!
