Who Am I?

Searching

There were many times in the past that I fell into the notion that I was not good enough – from being excluded in school, to comparing myself to others to my husband leaving me. For this reason, the enemy uses this doubt frequently in attacking me.

As long as I am stuck in that downward spiral, I am not moving forward or following after God’s plan for my life. The enemy can simply set back because I am already discouraged and defeated.

But God doesn’t see any of us as not good enough.

You and I must remember that God has made each one of us unique for His plan and purpose. The world needs us to fulfill that plan. We have to come to a point where we see ourselves as God sees us.

I encourage you to read through some of the great scriptures from Renee Swope’s Confident Heart:

                                      John 1:12

                        2 Timothy 1:7

                            Ephesians 3:12

Your Turn: Who are you? Not whom others say you are, but whom God says you are. I encourage you to let your true identity in Christ shine through to the dark world today.

  1. Yes I agree with what Karen said, beautiful and simple, and a powerful reminder of who we truly are in Christ! It is so easy to get stuck in that downward spiral, but you are right – when we do so, we are not moving forward with God’s wonderful plans for our lives! Thank you Jamy!!!

  3. Thank you, Jamy, for sharing the verses and this TRUTH….”We have to come to a point where we see ourselves as God sees us.” I love that God’s Word says I am significant…..Ephesians 3:12 (NIV) In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
