What a great reminder this quote was the other day when I ran across it. This summer I was blessed to be part of a women’s Bible study time focusing on True Identity – knowing who I am in Christ.
And knowing the more I agree with God about my identity, the more my life will reflect Him. The more I wholeheartedly live in my True Identity, the less opportunity I give the enemy to steal my Identity away from me.
So when the accuser whispers out the lies he crafts to deceive my heart~
You’re not good enough, you’re not loved, you’re not respected, you have no real purpose.
Just look at them – their life is much more exciting, they have more than you, they’re so much better than you.
Really. . . you can’t compete with her! You’re not pretty enough, or skinny enough, or talented enough, or smart enough .
And you call yourself spiritual? – God doesn’t care about you.
You’re a bad mother, a lacking wife, a disappointment – you have no legacy.
Remember that time you ______ (fill in the blank with any sin). You think He’d forgive you for that??? You’ll never change.
. . . and as you know with lies, there is truth mixed in with the deceit.
I don’t have to live in that place of failure, of defeat, of deceit. Because I was worth dying for! And His word tells us that there is now therefore no condemnation in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).
My Abba Father calls my name, Daughter. I am love unconditionally, and I am redeemed by His blood, and am no longer a failure.
The Truth is found in the palms of the One who died for me.
The Truth lives in my heart. And my life is in the palms of His Hands.
See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;
Your walls are continually before Me.
