Importance of knowing our Identities in Christ:

Posted: October 5, 2015 in Foundation on "Identities in Christ"

Knowing our Identities in Christ has a great power to destroy strongholds build by the enemy in our lives, the lies of the enemies build in us through others, even our own parents, friends and communities.

God loves us so much that He wants to build us up in our Identities in Christ. When we are not build up in our Identities in Christ, the Devil will give us wrong self images. Jesus said, “The thief (satan) came only to steal, kill and destroy”, to destroy us, every part of us, and everything in this world, while Jesus came to give us life, abundant life. The word of God also said that Satan is the Father of lies.

One example from a true story:

Let’s look at from one example, it was 2006, my wife and I were in Discipleship Training School, we had a speaker and a teacher, as well as one of a good leader from Australia who taught a week on the topic of “Destiny by design”. She shared one true story about a lady who was a beautiful lady, but got a wrong self image who was not able to see herself beautiful, and that they used to tell her “You are a beautiful lady”, but she could not believe it even though she was a beautiful lady.

Deceives of the enemy:

So, in the same way, just as the beautiful lady, the Devil can deceive us with wrong pictures about ourself in many different ways, for some people they might not able to see themselves precious, for another it might be shame, for another the Devil might have build a structure in them, or has destroyed their Godly confident, for some people they might have a thought that they were not born to be successful, and some others can have a self image of being stupid because someone in a family or her teacher used to call her stupid, you can say, “I am wise”. For some the Devil might have given you the spirit of condemnations in your thought, but the word of God said, “There is now no condemnations for those who are in Christ Jesus”, “God did not sent His son Jesus Christ to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him”. For some people the Devil might deceive them by thinking that they were “born to be a Sinner”, no body in this world were born to be a sinner, for another they might not able to see themselves as a child of the King of heaven and earth, for another they might not able to see themselves significant or valuable to God, for some people they might have a problem to feel the love of God and to know that God really really love them.

God wants to destroy all these lies the Father of lies Satan has put in our thoughts by the truths of the Kingdom of God.

The truth is –

You are Extremely Valuable to God,
You are Highly Precious,
You are the child of the King of heaven and earth,
You are a Prince/ You are a Princess, (1 John 3:1; John 1:12)
You are Extremely loved,
You are Highly Significant,
You are Highly Special to God.

The more you know you are valuable, the more you can value others. The more you know you are precious, the more you can see others precious.

Identity In Christ

You are Highly

Don’t let the Devil deceive you by his lies about you, you can proclaim them saying, “I am”, “I am Extremely Valuable to God”, and from time to time reminding yourself and meditating on these words, there is power to break strongholds in proclamations of our Identities in Christ.
