There is a point in each of our lives when we begin to seek to discover ourselves. What I long for, what my deepest desire is when that time comes, we turn to God. For only in God can we find the truth about who we are, and it is only by growing in him are we able to see with discernment the way he sees.
The rest of your life will be marked by competition for your identity. This world is saturated with voices telling you how to live. It would like nothing more than to completely overwhelm you with inadequacy and misinformation toward every aspect of who you are. Make no mistake. You are in a fight! The very core of who you are is under attack.
Let’s win. - Shelly
The Who Am I? bible study is built upon one fundamental principle: Our possession, our status of being a child of God, is the foundation that supports every truth that is to come. Being God’s child is the essential glue that holds all things together. Why? Because it is only through this status or this foundation can we begin to understand what our true part, position, purpose, and passion is that comes with being that child of God. (Companion Workbook)
True identity, or what will be referred to as Biblical identity, can only be found in God through Jesus. Because Jesus lived a perfect life, died a sinless death and then rose from the dead, we have the opportunity to know God as his child.
1 John 1:3 tell us this -
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
Those who accept this lavish gift of God's son have the privilege to be called a child of God. It is this permanent possession that marks the foundation behind our identities.
Our lives our subject to change. What we are today may be vastly different tomorrow, but for the child of God circumstances do not alter who they are. Once you are a child of God you are forever a child of God!
Your possession is your foundation! Don't waste another moment trying to figure out who you are until you know whose you are. I am a child of God and no matter what comes my way that is a truth I can firmly stand upon!
