Embracing Your Identity in Christ

But God will redeem me…for He will receive me. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

What your life amounts to is directly connected to what you think of yourself. We need to learn to think like God thinks. We must learn to identify with Christ and the new person He has made us to be.

Some identify with the problems they have had in life and call themselves by that name. They say, “I am bankrupt. I am an abuse victim. I am an addict.” But they should say, “I was bankrupt, but now I am a new creature in Christ. I was a victim of abuse, but now I have a new life and a new identity. I was an addict, but now I am free, and I have discipline and self-control.”

God has a good plan for each of us, but we need to have our minds renewed in order to experience what Jesus has made available for us to enjoy.

Prayer of the Day: Lord, please help me to see myself as You see me and to leave the past behind once and for all. Please help me to renew my mind and embrace my identity as Your child—made right in You, amen.
