Isn’t it great that God calls us by name? Whilst we seek identity from what we have, what we do, our relationship status, we have a God who has an identity for us that is not based on what we do, but on who He is !🙌🏻
Before any human title we may acquire , it’s important that we know that we are children of God. He is our creator, we are His creation, He is the potter and we are the clay .
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:27 NKJV
Growing up as a teen l tried to gain identity by what l did and by my possession. See having being so insecure, l thought that l had to obtain love from God by my performance.
That was far from the truth!, Nothing in this world has power to define who you are in God. He loved us before we even loved Him, He validated and approved of my existence before l was even born! Nothing that l could do can separate me from His love.
You can become so consumed with what you do so much that you forget who you are. It may be that you are a mother, a father, or have a high status in the community, it may be that you do something in the house of God. Whatever it is you are first and foremost “God’s own”.
Even if you fail at what you do, you will still be a child of God.Even when you lose what you have, God still says that you are His!
This truth, changed my life. I pray that it encourages you!
Much love 💖
