TAKING BACK YOUR IDENTITY
It is important that your identity is taken back. There are so many things that happen in life that the true identity that was given is lost in the cares, the challenges, the circumstances, the concerns that arise. These things cause sight of the true identity to be lost. How? Why? The sight in which you were created is lost, is changed, is distorted because of that being presented, the illusion that seems to be real, that has come to discourage and distract, to cause the focus to be diverted. Therefore, the view becomes that of pain, of hurt, of being a failure, of everything other than the image and the likeness you were created in and after. Taking back your identity is to see yourself as God sees you, to know the words that were spoken over you, as you were being created, being formed, being made. To know that you are the head and not the tail; that you are above and not beneath (Deuteronomy 28:13); that you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14); that you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and a peculiar [special] people for God (1 Peter 2:9), Who created you in His image and after His likeness (Genesis 1:26) based on His thoughts towards you (Jeremiah 29:11)!
BE ENCOURAGED and know who you are!!!
Why It Is Important to Reclaim Your Image?
Through life's circumstances, experiences and situations we lose our identity; we became who we are based on things that occurred. Therefore, it is important that God's people reclaim their image in order to reclaim their destiny. God's people cannot reclaim their destiny until or unless they reclaim their image and to reclaim your image is to know, realize and understand who we are. That we were created in the image and after the likeness of God. It is key, essential in understanding the importance of being created in God's image and after His likeness. That God created, planned and purposed His people to be victorious regardless of our circumstances, situations or problems. In the beginning God gave us dominion, He gave us authority and He gave us power. Therefore, regardless of how things might look or feel we have the authority to put those things under our feet and the power to overcome and be victorious.
In addition, it is not only who we are, but whose we are. It is also knowing and understanding our value, worth and purpose for God and in the kingdom of God. That God created us for Himself, for His pleasure, for His purpose, for His plan that He has for our lives according to His divine and perfect will.
LOVE is . . .
4 Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. 5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
REMEMBER, REAL LOVE DOES NOT HURT!!!
Love encourages, love cherishes, love protects, love helps, love complements, love strengthens, love prevails, love rejoices, love soothes, love comforts, love gives, love cares, love endures, love bears, love hopes, love believes, love completes and so many more wonderful is in love. However, remember, most importantly that REAL LOVE DOES NOT HURT!!!
ALWAYS BECOMING NEW
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Old ways, old stuff, old thoughts, old behaviors, old attitudes, old things must go! The baggage, the weight must be taken off, laid down, thrown aside. The old must be constantly taken or stripped off. Taking or stripping off allows the old to pass out of existence--leaving behind the old ways, the old conditions, the old things. Therefore, all things can become new, become fresh--hearts become new and whole whereby the inner man becomes renewed day after day--being reconciled and always becoming new. Then, new things can come in--come in to stay--always and constantly becoming new in Christ.
Cast Your Cares
1 Peter 5:7
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
Regardless of what your cares, challenges, circumstances or concerns are cast them on the Lord
Forgiveness vs. Unforgiveness
We have all been in a situation whether to forgive or not to forgive someone. Whether you decide to forgive or not it is a choice. Choosing to forgive someone is not always an easy choice or thing to do, nevertheless, it is the best choice. It is the best choice because it allows you to be and remain FREE!
It's Time to . . .
LET GO and BE FREE--from the baggage that so easily, so cleverly and so readily clings to and weighs down God's people!!!
