Recover From Identity Crisis

There are moments in life when the struggle gets real and a Christian finds himself or herself in an identity crisis. Those are moments when you are discontented with life. This is the time when you wish you had somebody else’s privileges, gifting or abilities otherwise things would have been different for you. These are moments when you may begin to compare your failures with somebody else’s achievements. Those are times when you may look in the mirror but you wish you were as beautiful as that other person or you wish you had the same lifestyle as that of the other human being. Those are times when life may seem unfair otherwise you would have the same beauty as that of Queen Esther, or you would have the courage as that of Joshua the son of Nun, the bravery of Naomi who lost everything abroad yet returned home to face her fate in the God of Israel, the faith of Daniel who stood in faith even in the face or adversity or the lifestyle of King Solomon who was the wealthiest man on earth.

When these thoughts pervade your mindset and everyday Christian life looks like Christianity isn’t working for you, then it is the time to get real with God, focus on him and allow his strength to be made perfect in your weaknesses. When these thoughts pop up in your mind, the best thing for us to do is to turn to God, stand fast with the belt of truth and counter every false lies of the devil with faith declarations. When the truth about who you are in God and the truth of God concerning you seems thwarted by the enemy’s fiery arrow, that is the best time to to fight back with your shield of faith. When it seems you are alone in this fight, be encouraged by the story of Moses who was born Jewish, raised as an Egyptian and at some point suffered from identity crisis yet who eventually embraced who God created him to be (Hebrews 11:24-25).

The best things of this world do not define who you are, only God does. Somebody once said this statement; “Be yourself, everybody else is taken”, allow me to say this to you, your DNA is different to others, your paths in life is different, follow it and become who God created you to be.

Make a Bold Declaration of Faith Today
My image is embedded in Christ Jesus through whom I have been created anew, for old things have passed away and all things have become new.
====================================
I am created anew in Christ Jesus. My identity is refreshed and my image is new. Henceforth, I live in dominion, I bring forth fruits in abundance, nations arw subdued under my feet. Principalities and powers of this world are subjects to me because Christ is in me and greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world.

I wear the image of God because in him I live, in him I move and in him I have my being. Nothing can tamper with my identity. No one can box in the image or the identity of God. I declare that Therefore no one will be able to box in my image or my identity for this reason I was made in the image of God and after his likeness.

My image cannot be boxed in or hidden for I was fashioned in the image of God and after his likeness. Henceforth God in me speaks through me. The inage of Christ over me speaks for my identity. I live like Christ in dominion over every other living creature on earth. I am specially created in the likeness of God for God’s blessings in fruitfulness, multiplication, subduing and dominion of the earth for God’s purpose on earth. God took one good look at me and he says I am wholesome and I am a good work of his hands.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

God’s plan for me is that of peace and not of evil, that of hope and not of hopelessness, that of a great future and that plan shall be fulfilled in my life.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I am a child of the living God, the king of all kings. I am no longer conformed to the image of this world nor do I adhere to its patterns. Henceforth I see me the way God sees me and I think the way God wants me to think. I am a child of a king, the living God and I will live like one. Henceforth my mind is renewed as I study the word and I am at alert to God’s ways as I daily observe God’s laws. The word of God permeates through my being bringing me closer to God and transforming me into the likeness of Christ.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I am God’s special possession, God’s royal priest chosen for a life of holiness and to fulfil special assignment on earth. I no longer belong to the dark world but I belong to the light where God called me into. Therefore I no longer subject my mind, body and soul to the torment of this world but I surrender my will, my intellect and my desires to God’s will for my life. Henceforth I belong to the light, I belong to the living God, I am no longer a slave to darkness and I shall proclaim God’s excellencies for as long as I live.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I am God’s love. I am altogether beautiful, there is no flaw in me for they are hidden in Christ who gives me a new identity.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I praise you God for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I have not received the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear but I have receive the spirit of son-ship by whom I can cry Abba Father!
