Who are you?

I know I wasn’t suppose to blog until I got back from DR but the word I have, has been bugging me for the last 2 days so I thought I’d share it and it is the importance of knowing who you are in God’s kingdom.

Identity is defined as “the fact of being who or what a person or thing is”. In our generation, your identity is depicted by what you wear, what you do, or even what you say. But in our fathers eyes our identity is our character; NOT our reputation. There is a difference. Now, before i go any further, i want you all to stop for a second to think about yourself, do you know who you are in Christ? I ask this because often, us even as believers and followers let our actions, or our mistakes define us, and i am here to tell you, they don’t. From the moment you declared God as your savior, from the moment you decided to seek his face, and his word with everything in you, was the moment Jesus gave you an identity that is permanent and everlasting. Sometimes, it’s hard. Sometimes we fall short and we have doubts. Sometimes, we let our peers get inside our heads about who we are and what our purpose is. Sometimes we let our sins, burden us and define us. All of this, are the works of the devil. He wants to confuse you. And just because he tries, doesn’t mean he controls you! He even tested Jesus, for 40 days and 40 nights; but Jesus knew his identity and knowing that; he got through it all. The devil will try to make you question who you are and what your purpose is and if there is anyone struggling with that, I’m here to remind you of who you are and that no matter what you do, it is solidified.

This is the TRUTH about who you are:

You are a masterpiece - Deuteronomy 7:6

You are our father’s possession - 1 Peter 2:9

You are FORGIVEN - Ephesians 1:7

You are secured for all eternity - 2 Corinthians 1:22

And from the day you were created, God has given your purpose and that purpose may be right in front of you!!!

So ironic, i said that, and my blog is opened right in front of me. Which brings me to my own personal example. I was born with the ability to write, to tell stories and to act. From a very young age, i knew this but i doubted it day in and day out and never worked at my gifts. I would scream at the thought of public speaking, I wouldn’t even bother auditioning for plays because I felt like I wasn’t good enough; and I would tell myself I didn’t like to write; and so they just remained dormant. It took for me to know God, to accept him as my savior, for him to really shed light on my identity and my purpose; and most of all, give me security in it. All those years, the enemy wanted to keep those gifts from me; so that I wouldn’t reach this point. Now that I am here, he is angry and tries to send confusion to my mind even as I am writing; but in the name of Jesus, i cancel his works every single time.

God loves you, he has promised you so much, who you are is one of them. Search for it with your whole heart and you will know. Times aren’t always going to be easy; in fact they may never be, but trust that you are who God says you are through every single obstacle. Don’t worry about what the person next to you thinks or says; and most importantly, don’t let your feelings define you because those are ALSO temporary.

Just because you feel sad, doesn’t mean you ARE sad.

Just because you feel happy, doesn’t mean you ARE happy.

Y’all feel me?

Identity is eternal, feelings and judgment change like the weather.

Know yourself, know ya worth. God bless y’all.

For a very long time, my full testimony was something that I was ashamed of. And when I wasn’t ashamed of it, the narrative then became: it’s too much to share, no one would care. But for the last few

Hey guys, today the word obedience has been heavy on my mind and it led to so many things after. But I really just want to share the word the Lord brought me to while I was talking to Him this morning

"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed" - Isaiah 53:5
