Word for Today

  • Knowing who you are in Christ

    'You are mine.' Isaiah 43:1 NIV

    We hear about people being released from prison after serving time for a crime they didn't commit. It was a case of mistaken identity. Identifying someone means having the ability to recognise and say exactly who they are. Satan wants you to identify with who people say you are, versus who God says you are. And unless you know who you are in God's eyes, Satan will hammer you with feelings of condemnation and unworthiness.

    God's grace and unconditional love for you is the only secure foundation on which to base your salvation and self-worth. Today he says to you: 'Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine' (Isaiah 43:1 NIV). Jesus identified with God's opinion only: 'I know where I came from and where I am going' (John 8:14 AMP). People said terrible things about Jesus, yet here's what God said about him: 'The stone...the builders rejected has become the...cornerstone' (Psalm 118:22 NKJV).

    Sometimes we're so busy telling people what to do that we neglect to tell them who they are. Knowing who you are in Christ gives you confidence to hold your head high. You are 'complete' because of your relationship to Christ (see Colossians 2:10). God sees you clothed in Christ's righteousness (see 2 Corinthians 5:21). Once you accept that, you stop feeling like you constantly fall short. When you have money in the bank and you need to withdraw it, you don't feel pressured because you know it's in an account with your name on it. Likewise, you don't have to struggle for other people's approval when you know you're loved and accepted by God.
