Know who you are: There’s power in being certain.

Quick encouragement for you tonight. When your situation, circumstances and life tries to tell you who you are, you tell it who you is! Jesus was laid in a manger filled with hay. He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, but He wasn’t born with a silver spoon in His mouth, but listen to this, He was born with all power in His hands! 🙌🏾 Jesus, the Word of God, who spoke the universe into existence, wasn’t rich. Not only wasn’t He rich, but He worked as a carpenter up until He was thirty. I’m going to stop here because I could go on and on but I don’t need to, because this should be enough to show you that your family history, life experiences, or current situation does not dictate who you are. The Word of God does. His Word says, in Romans 8:29, “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.” Do you know the magnitude of this scripture! This is big folks! God has predestined you to be like Christ! Oh, if you only knew how powerful that made you! Who you are, goes beyond what people think about you, or what you go through, or how much money you have. Change your perspective and have a mind of Christ. Know who you are! You are a God heir! Romans 8:17, “Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” Not everyone can go through what you’ve gone through and still know WHO THEY ARE! Too many people get caught up in what they go through and become victims or lost in their mess, so they pull away from God, and abandon their God given identity! Listen, God heirs don’t have it easy folks! But, you are chosen by God, to reign with Him forever! Don’t get caught up in the things of this world, if you belong to Christ, then this world is not your home. When this life is over, you’re going somewhere better. This world can’t begin to compare to Heaven. The time we spend here isn’t even a fraction of a second when you look at the eternal scope of things, so don’t let your current situation stress you out! Your current situation is not your final destination! No matter what funk you’re in right now, you’re great right now. You’re powerful right now. You’re favored right now! You’re forgiven right now! You are loved, right now!
1 Peter 2:9, Romans 8:18
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
Remember, Jesus fulfilled His purpose despite everything He went through, because He knew who He was/is. People talked about Him, mocked Him, He went through things unimaginable, but none of these things could take His identity away from Him. Why? Because knowing who you are is a powerful thing. Can’t no devil in hell talk you out of your destiny when you know who you are! No hardship, no sickness, no broken heart, no hater, nobody’s point of view, rejection or acceptance of you. When you’re certain of who you are, no one can take that away from you. ❤️❤️❤️
