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 have privileges of sonship with God. God approves me for greatness and I am becoming who He says I am. I am no longer live a life of mediocrity and I am staying focused on my God-given assignment so I can soar high like the eagles.
Have you ever been through a period of mistaken identity when people misjudged, misunderstood and made assumptions about who you are or who you should be? Our loved ones are sometimes guilty of this act. They make this mistake of thinking they know the real you and who you should become, and they are wrong about this, only God knows each person for who he created them to be. Jesus Christ experienced this with his parents too. Mary said to him, “Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you” to which Jesus answered them, saying, “did you not know I had to be in my Father’s house?“. Jesus knew his identity and the best way to deal with a mistaken identity is to affirm who you are to those who do not really know you.
So, when you go through this type of life challenges, remember it is because the people in your life do not know who you truly are. Jesus Christ explained the reason for this misunderstanding is because; they do not accept you because they have not received Christ, also, you may be in the world but you are not of the world. So, the best way to deal is to follow in the footsteps of Christ and let the world know our real self.
If Jesus Christ could declare his identity at least fifteen times in the Bible from as little as at age twelve, then you 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.
