About 15 years ago, someone gave me a prophetic word that said, "You don't need a location for your identification. Your identification is in Me." That has really stood out to me over the past month or so.
I've also realized that my identity is not in my job, my significant other, my family, where I worship, my friends and associates, my amazing Jeep, the house I live in, the things I have acquired or even my precious Golden Retriever. My identity is not in my physical appearance, my talents, my personality or my connections.
All I am and all I ever need/want/desire/aspire to be is wrapped up in Jesus. He is my identity...and I'm continuing to be transformed into His likeness. What a process! I'm so thankful He has that kind of patience!! :)
Where do you find your identity? Is your worth the sum total of all your earthly belongings? Do you see yourself as a construction worker, doctor, secretary, accountant, teacher, mom, dad, sibling? Do you long for acceptance and approval from those in your workplace, school, church?
Let me encourage you to ask Jesus to show you your true worth in Him. He has all the acceptance, approval and identity you could ever need!
