Our identity in Christ is so important. I just since the Lord is trying to tell His people how important it is in this season to know their “true” identity in Him. The thief comes to kill, steal, and destroy. How does he do this? By attacking our identity with lies, innuendos, falsehood, doubt and unbelief. The Bible clearly says there are, “difficult times ahead” (2 Timothy 3:1).
Knowing our identity will be of utmost importance to fulfill our purpose in Him. Several years ago I became interested in knowing what my name (s) and the names of my two sons meant. I was elated to learn that my name (Aleatha) meant ‘truth’ and my middle name meant ‘free.’
Your identity is not wrapped up in some else’s identity. Each one of us is unique and intricately put together by God. He knows your name, He sees your life, and He cares about the inner desires of your heart. God doesn’t see as man sees. He can see things about you that no one else can see. Deep things. Hidden things. You know, those inner thoughts and desires that your family and friends have no idea are even floating around in your heart and mind. “the LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).
