Satan Will Strip Your Identity


I know of many young people who have been stuck in a wallowing cycle of not knowing their true identity. I pray that this powerful temimony will inspire someone to be assured of their identity as children of the Most High God.

You are all valuable and precious beings in the sight of God. It doesn’t matter how bad your past may have been. I believe the failure to come to a realization of our identity as children of God is why many Christians (and non-Christians) go down the road of deep depression and rebellion. Satan wants to steal the light that God has engraved within your soul. If he can get you to wallow around in a fictitious place of being like a superstar instead of the person God wants to be, he will do so. Satan will sow in a spirit of condemnation and self-hatred, telling you that you will never measure up until you come out on top. God wants to use you as a mighty influence to someone. The fact that you can make a difference to just one human on this Earth is a huge blessing. I encourage you to rest in the everlasting love that God continues to pour out to you, and the grace He offers for you to be a citizen of Heaven.

We are always available if you ever need someone to talk to. We would be more than willing to comfort you and encourage you every step of the way.

Let us continue to bring forth the message of and Gospel to the nations as we fight the good fight against Satan! 🙂

Your identity is in Christ


There are many scriptures that cover this subject for believers and the list is a little long but each of them tells us who we are in Christ.

  • You are His special possession (1 Peter 2:9, Deut. 14:2)
  • You are chosen, picked by God Who created everything (Jeremiah 1:5, Eph. 1:3-4)
  • You are treasured (Deut. 7:6, 14:2, 26:18)
  • You are irreplaceable (1Thess. 1:4)
  • You are loved (1John 4:19, 4:10, 3:16, Rom. 5:8, 8:35-39)
  • You are worth dying for (John 3:16, Rom. 5: 7-9)
  • You are forgiven (Eph. 1:7, 1 John 1:9)
  • You are His child (1 John 3:1, Gal. 3:26)
  • You are secure (2 Cor. 1:22, John 10: 28-29)
  • You are set free (Rom. 6:18, Gal. 5:1)
  • You are precious to Him (Isaiah 43:4)
  • You have been set apart (John 15:16-19, 1 Pet. 2:9)

Why do I go to the trouble of listing all of these for you? Because it is needed and necessary. Because if anyone is in Christ He is a new creation and you need to know where you fit into His Kingdom. You can’t learn this in Sunday school and many churches don’t teach this to new believers, they just baptize them and put them on the roll for the numbers.

The problem is that most of us never hear about our identity in Christ until many years down the road and we really need to hear it as soon as we are brought into the family of God. The church has dropped the ball, so to speak, in the decades since prayer was taken out of schools and we truly need to pick it up before it is too late. In some areas of our country, it may already be too late.

We have our salvation when we believe in Jesus as our Savior and repent of our sins but we need to be taught about Him and our identity in Him because the more we know about Him, the better we will know Him. In many religions, your identity is in the religion itself but our identity falls in two places. One of those places is that you can claim your Christian identity as a follower of Jesus but your real identity is a bit deeper than that if you are planning on growing into your faith which all of us are expected to do. We aren’t supposed to remain as “babes in Christ”.

If you are a new Christian or if you are curious about becoming one, look these scriptures up online or in a Bible if you have one. Read them and ask God to show Himself to you and show you His love for you because it is found in every Scripture that is listed above. Let me know how it goes and keep seeking because you will find your answers in Jesus Christ.
