For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. — Psalm 139:13-16 (NIV)
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. — Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)
Do you safeguard your possessions? Perhaps you lock your home and car to make sure that you do not fall prey to intruders or robbers. Perhaps you have your money stored away in a bank account. In this day and age, it is also highly likely that you keep a close watch over documents that bear your personal information to avoid identity theft.
Unfortunately, we spend a great deal of time safeguarding the things that are temporary; many times it is to the detriment of that which is of eternal value. We have been fashioned with amazing giftedness to carry out God’s perfect will and plan for our lives but day by day, somewhere along the way, we have allowed the enemy to steal our true identity.
As believers, we desperately want to believe that we are world changers and history makers but are we truly living in light of that? It is past time that we snatch our true identity back from the enemy. The only way to regain possession of our original design is to flush out the lies that has been embedded in our minds with a flood of truth from God’s Word.
Lord, I am ready to live and walk in victory. I realize that it will require that I regain my true, one of a kind, uniquely designed identity. Help me to set aside time each and every day to meditate on the truth from Your Word.
