Sowinig blessings and life lessons to encourage, refresh, and benefit our lives.
Everywhere we look, people are looking
for identity and validation. It almost
prompts us to ponder the straightforward
soul's searching inquiry,
"Who am I?"
One of life's most important realities is
knowing to Whom we belong. As humans we
desire to know and understand who we are
and Whose we are. We desire to be authentic...
true to who we are.
Our most basic human needs are to
belong, feel connected, be accepted, to
be loved and to trust in the support of
those we know and love.
belonging of our lives is clearly this:
we belong to God! God made us to be
His very own people. God created each
individual with a certain purpose in mind.
God has a plan for our lives, and God
has already ordained each person's
destiny. May we be ready to follow
Nothing is greater than resting in God's
plan since everything comes from God,
passes through God, and is directed
Each and every one of us was formed in the
womb by God. God also knew us. Because
of this, Jeremiah 1:5 declares, "I knew you
before I created you in the womb. I designated
you as my prophet to the nations before you
were even born.
This implies that we had an identity before we
were born. God is aware of our identity and
We begin to understand God and ourselves
as we develop and evolve. We begin to
understand that God made us with a
purpose in mind.
For I know the plans I have for you,
says the Lord, Jeremiah 29:11. these
plans for good are meant to offer us a
future... not calamity.
God demonstrates to us that we have identities
in the book of Jeremiah.
Why then do we experience identity crises?
Well, there are numerous possible causes for
* We have experiences that cause us to doubt
who we are. Experiences like loss, failure, and
*Nobody ever teaches us who we are or that
we are God's property.
*Parents or other caretakers can sometimes
fail to educate us that God is the Source of our
*We are under social pressure to adjust and
*We see what is "in" and "out," and if we don't
emulate it, we start to doubt whether we are
who we ought to be.
All of these arguments are legitimate, but we
shouldn't let them make us second-guess who
and Whose we are.
Insecurities cannot exist if our identity is in
God! We are magnificently and fearfully made.
There is a lot of freedom and confidence in
knowing who we are and living up to it.
God embodies the word secure, and God
doesn't alter. Insecurities cannot exist if our
identity is in God!
We are magnificently and fearfully made.
There is a significant amount of freedom
from external control or influence and
confidence in knowing who we are and
Whose we are. In knowing Whose we are
we can confidently walk in our identity.
Regardless of social rank, wealth, or
knowledge... God is fully aware of
everything about us. The Scriptures are
very clear on this point that everything
about us is laid bare before God. Never
have we experienced, contemplated, or
taken action that God has not fully and
All human beings were given life by
God and are made in God's image
God loves us and is under no illusion
about who we are, where we have been,
what we have done or acquired. God
does not ignore or change His standards
The entirety of the Scriptures conveys
to the world that we are God's creation
and that we belong to God.
When faced with difficulties or after a
prolonged period of drifting away from
God, we may occasionally doubt our faith
and dedication to God.
Trust... God will never allow us to feel
unworthy of His love because He will always
be able to reach us. Our lives have direction
and meaning because we are a part of God.
The good news is, no matter
how badly we are broken,
God can fix us.
Our family, culture, traits, triumphs, and
failures are not random occurrences. We
have been purposefully created by God,
and until we comprehendhow He originally
intended for us to be, we will never be
Whether one is a top executive, a scholar,
an artist, a physician, a mother, a father, a
pauper, an heir to the throne, or a friend,
nothing will ever be able to make us
separate from God and His love, and nothing
will ever alter the reality that we are God's
masterpiece. As we attempt to evaluate all
of our other responsibilities in life, the
context of this fundamental truth must be
taken into account.
Psalm 100:3 serves as a reminder that
we are God's people. God is God, the
omnipotent Creator and Redeemer of
mankind, and God will always be God.
that we belong to God?
It can make all the difference!
God has a definite plan for us in mind
as His masterpiece. To discover this
purpose is the first step toward a
transformed existence. It can provide
us with profound self-confidence that
we matter... because we belong to the
Creator of the universe.
Our Creator has revealed Himself in both
science and history. We must recognize
God for Who He is. God formed us and
created us as His own people. God made
everything and God sustains everything.
This plain truth has the power to change
our lives, and each of these other tasks
will be impacted by how we carry out
our fundamental connection with God...
as a part of Him.
Our experiences, challenges, and
upbringing have pulled us toward God
rather than away from God. Where
according to our knowledge,
observations, and experiences as well
as the Scriptures, the safest place
for us to be is not distant from God,
but rather near to God. In God, and in
God alone, we have a Refuge and a
According to Psalm 91:1-2,
"Whoever dwells in the shelter of
the Most High will rest in the
shadow of the Almighty.
Even if God never did another good thing in
our lives, we could spend the rest of our lives...
glorifying and praising God for what He
has already done.
We trust God, the Creator of the entire
universe, with our whole life. We firmly
believe that even if we lose everything...
God is all-sufficient.
For in God we live, and move, and
have our being.
