I identify myself to who God says I am.
If I am what I do I always need to do more and achieve more to find my value.
If I am what others say I’ll always try to please people.
But if I listen to who God says I am and embrace his identity in me I’ll find the freedom to live out all He has planned for me.
I am not defined by my feelings. I am not defined by the opinions of others or by circumstances. I am not defined by my successes or failures. I am not defined by the car I drive, the money I make, or the house I say I own.
The thing is, if you don’t know who you are, then you’re vulnerable to other people telling you who you are. But the concrete, solid, gospel truth is that you are who God says you are, and no one else has a vote in the matter.
