Biblical Declarations to Affirm Your Identity in Christ
Declaration of faith: I am who God says I am. I am the child of a great King. I am privileged to be one with God. God approves me for greatness and I will become great who He says I will be. I will no longer live a life of mediocrity but I will work hard, be diligent and stay focused on my God-given assignment on earth and I will soar high like the eagles.
Ever been through a period of mistaken identity in your life where people misjudge and make assumptions about you, but you know that’s not who you really are? This is precisely what happens when we fail to let the world know our real self. If Jesus could declare his identity at least fifteen times in the Bible from as little as at age twelve, then we ought to follow in his footsteps and start to proclaim the truth about ourselves to the world. We have the authority to change the narrative of our lives. We can accept the truth about our true identity in Christ, and start to live as one in alignment with God’s word about us.
The prodigal son did not realise his identity through his father until he made a mistake that landed him in trouble. Thankfully he came back to his senses, made restitution and he was fully restored. He received forgiveness from his father, his privileges as a son was restored and he was fully restored into his father’s family (Luke 15:11-32). Likewise, we are fully God’s children if we believe and accept that we are. No matter what our feelings say to us, God’s thoughts about his children never change. He said we are His children (John 1:12). His words are the same yesterday, today and forever. We are forever God’s children and we have privileged access to our heavenly Father. These words are our real identity in God and they’ll never change.
When we receive these words into our lives we are saying to God that we believe in his word and we are in agreement with his plans for our lives. Speaking out loud these declarations over ourselves will not only remind us of God’s ever-present never-ending love to us daily but it will also help us to be grounded in our true identity in God. They will bring our minds back to who truly matters in life and also build up our faith in God as we so need.
These Biblical declarations are like your daily dose of vitamins you need to stay healthy. You can’t do without them and they require your daily commitment in order for them to work. These declarations are the same. They require nothing but your daily commitment in order to shift our focus from distractions in this world, set our minds on God’s word and speak over ourselves what God says about us so that we can achieve all the things our heart ever so desires. A failure to affirm our identity regularly is really setting ourselves up for the world to label us with names that God has not called us. Let us, therefore, have moments with Christ when we regularly speak the following declarations over ourselves daily. Together we can change our world for good.
