I Am…

19 02 2014

Who are you? On a daily basis, we answer this question with basic vital statistics – name, job, and relationships. But how we answer this question in our souls is of eternal significance. The world spends a great deal of time trying to shape our identity. It will work hard to convince you that who you are defined by your weaknesses, your flaws, your shortcomings, your bank account, your accomplishments, your looks, or your circumstances. And we believe it. I believe it, and it cripples the way I walk through my day. Never good enough becomes my mirror and the way I see my reflection.

God has good news. You are not limited by your “I can’ts,” “It will nevers,” or “That’s impossibles.” Here are ten truths God wants you to embrace.

1. I am blessed.

2. I am forgiven.

3. I have a purpose.

4. I am loved.

5. I am victorious.

6. I am a masterpiece in progress.

7. I am saved by grace.

8. I am never alone.

9. I am rich in the things that matter.

10. I am a child of God.

My Jesus Resolution today is to believe that I am who God says I am. The world shouts, screams, and pressures me to settle for its version of me. God gently calls me into His love, inviting me to see myself through His eyes. Today I will read God’s truths about who I am out loud. I will say them with joy, embrace them with hope, and walk in them with confidence. God is at work…in me and in you. That is who I am, and that is enough for me.
