145. Know Your Identity
As believers, we need to know our identity in Christ in order to receive and live in the comfort and assurance He provides. Defining your identity gives you peace in the face of the unseen. This assurance gives you value and worth in Him and in your life, even within this pandemic.
What is this assurance? It’s about who you are in Christ. He planned you to be exactly who you are. He knew and saw the trials and the tribulations you will live through. He saw you at your worst and loved you. He saw you at your best as He guided you forward. He grieved for and with you over the wounds you suffered. He healed you from your hurts. He embraced you in your sorrows.
The greatest discovery for you is to find who you are in Him. You are a child of God. You are His special child, His bride, his Creation. 1 Peter 2:9 calls you “you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.” The Lord assures further by stating in verse 24 “by His wounds you have been healed.” The challenge for you, I, us all is to live for righteousness.
