Sweet friends, who we are positionally is oftentimes not lived out in our reality and we walk around broken from the experience of our past not realizing that our identity has healed us.
You may sometimes feel invisible, incapable, inadequate and unloveable, but the truth is that not only are you complete in Christ, but you have never escaped His view…not even for a second.
You are loved with an everlasting love; you are the apple of His eye, He has inscribed you upon the palm of His hand and called you by name; you are a beautiful masterpiece ~ a Divine design ~ carefully crafted by the Creator of the universe; He knows the thoughts of your heart and the number of hairs on your head; He will never leave you or forsake you; He has made you more than a conqueror through Christ and a wonderful warrior of the Most High God; He sees you right now…everything you’re going through…everything you’ve been through…and He promises to weave the ugly strands of your life into something beautiful and useful in the Master’s hands. He is your Lord and your Savior – your Refuge and your Redeemer – He is you Hope and your Peace. He is your God!
AND YOU, DEAR ONE…WELL, YOU ARE BROKEN NO MORE!
Today, will you take some time to understand who you are – what your new identity looks like – the benefits that come with who we are in Christ – the expectations/responsibilities that come with our new identity.
To really get a better foundation of who you are in Christ, look up the verses that coincide with your identity. I’ve provided most of the verses in the Amplified so you can get a bit of a better look at the depth of each word. If you have some extra time, look up the definitions in a Bible dictionary or dust off your Concordance and do some digin’.
And when you’re done going through this list, check out this awesome list I found at the Biblical Counseling Coalition!
