But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; I Peter 2:9
Many believers do not really know who they are; the power and the authority we have as believers. In order to fully perform at the level that God wants us to operate at, we need to first of all know who we are and the power we possess.
I was inspired by a song that I listened to in church this past Sunday to write this message. I never heard this song before until yesterday. As we were dancing and praising God, the message of this beautiful song began to minister to me . It reminded me of whom I am in Christ and I am led to ask you the same question and also remind you of who you are as well. So my beloved sister, Do you know who you are? Who does God say you are?
In order to live an effective Christian life, you need to know and believe who you are in CHRIST. Many people will try to tell you who you are by what they see, hear, feel and think about you, but beloved it is only God who knows everything about you inside out, The Lord knew you even before you were conceived; His words reveals this to us in Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” and in Psalm 139:14 it states that ''you were fearfully and wonderfully made by Him." In order to be whom God has destined you to be and live the life that He has intended for you, you have to understand your full identity in Christ.
