“He has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts.” (2 Corinthians 1:22a NLT)
Your personal identity—how you see yourself—is often shaped by your early experiences in life. Knowing our identity is in Christ can greatly impact the way we live our lives. Your faith will grow stronger as you focus on your identity in Christ.
Start believing what God says about you and that God defines you. You’re not defined by your education, feelings, successes, opinions of others, family, gender, color, past failures, a car you drive, money in the bank, bankruptcy or by your circumstances.
You are defined by God alone. He identifies you as his own (2 Corinthians 1:22).
Say this to yourself daily!
