It was an eye opening message I heard in Church and thought it would be wonderful to share it.
Many times we struggle as believers to cope up with our weaknesses and choose to battle them with our own strength. But the best way you can go about your day is knowing “Who you are?” and to “Whom you belong?”
If you know the answer to these 2 questions, you will never again feel defeated or dejected.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.John:10:10
When you are constantly being bombarded with the lies of the enemy or the struggles of day to day life or the complications of relationships, the rock to be rooted in is JESUS and HIS Word.
Devil always tries to steal your joy, peace, time with GOD, health, relationship and everything you value, but he doesn’t have any authority unless you let him to.
“…He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John:8:44
Any time you hear discouragement of any sort know that its the liar’s voice. When you are bombarded with all these lies know that,
1.You are the righteousness of GOD
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. 2 Cor:5:21(NLT)
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.2 Cor:5:21(NKJV)
Your Heavenly Father sees you as a “Righteous person” because of what JESUS did.
2. You are precious because of CHRIST
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.Rom:5:8
GOD knows that we are sinners and we fail from time to time, but every time you repent and go to HIM, HE always forgives and removes our sins as far as the East is from the West. No-one is perfect in this world don’t ever think that your actions will stop GOD from loving you. Your sins or your attitude can never make GOD love you any less.
He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.Ps:103:12
3.You are a friend of GOD
You are my friends if you do what I command you. John:15:14
Its fabulous to know that the Creator of Heaven and Earth, The KING of kings and the Lord of lords is your Best Friend. I mean the very thought should help you throw your shoulders back and lift your head high and walk in confidence that nothing can ever change “who you are and whom you belong to”???
From today whenever you feel discouraged or good for nothing or a failure, always remember “Who you are” and “To whom you belong”.Give the enemy a black eye!!!
I would like to encourage you to take a printout of this list made by Joyce Meyer of the verses that tell ‘Who you are in CHRIST?’ and read it aloud everyday.
Have a Courageous Day!!!
