The Building Blocks of Faith Part 2 – “Who am I?”
The Building Blocks of Faith Part 2
“Who am I?”
“Where lives change and where life can begin again”
The next building block to our faith which includes the renewing of
your mind, is knowing who you are. The renewing of the mind is a daily
refreshing of the knowledge of God in your life and knowing without a
shadow of a doubt that you are never alone, but there is one greater
than reigns on the inside of you. The next level is knowing who you are
in all of this. Knowing who you are brings about the confidence to face
anything in your life with both confidence and assurance that “I will
come out victorious.” It’s not about anything that I have accomplished,
but what God is accomplishing through my yielded heart and not to try
and do this in my strength, but in His alone. It is once again a daily
walk in His presence, strengthening my faith in what I cannot see, but
what I know in Him.
2 Corinthians 6:18 (NKJV)
18 “I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.”
Romans 8:14 (NKJV)
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
Galatians 4:7 (NLT)
7 Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are
his child, God has made you his heir.
Many people from their childhood have been called… lazy, good for
nothing, evil, sad, and many other names that God never called you. It
is said in the bible that what we believe of ourselves, we will become.
(Proverbs 23:7) But many of us have never heard that we are “Sons and
Daughters of God”. If sons, then heirs to the promises of God.
We know that Jesus was the son of God, but surely, we couldn’t be
sons, as bad as we are. But God never sees us that way. Even in our
“mess,” he calls us close to Him by allowing Jesus to die for all of us!
Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: 3 Who
forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems
your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and
tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 6 The Lord executes
righteousness, and justice for all who are oppressed. 7 He made known
His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in
mercy. 9 He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger
forever. 10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor punished us according to our iniquities.
Your soul is referring to your mind, your will and your emotions. In the
midst of confusion and pain in my mind and in my emotions, my will
wants to do what it wants to do, instead of what is right. In spite of it
all, I will bless the Lord. I will remind myself of who I am.
I am the healed!
I am the redeemed!
I am crowned with His love and His kindness!
I am satisfied with all good things! (my needs, my wants and my
And I am His child! I am safe in His arms and in His care!
Jesus came to earth to be our great example of the life that we all
should lead. He walked a life of sacrifice, love, compassion, holiness,
and determination. He was a man that was tempted just like we are, but
His determination to please the Father, more than himself, was the
focus of His life. Along with it came great benefits and rewards in spite
of the pain and disappointments.
Jesus knew who he was as he studied the scriptures and spent time
with the Father in prayer and devotion. He realized what He was called
to accomplish, and He went about doing good and healing those who
were oppressed by the devil. He studied to show himself approved and
a workman that needed not to be ashamed, but He rightly divided the
Word of Truth. He knew who He was.
We must come to know who we are by reading scripture and spending
time in the presence of God. He will reveal to you each day your call
and assignment here on earth for the season that you are here. He will
show you the power that abides on the inside of you through Jesus
Christ. He will teach you to lean on Him instead of yourself and to know
you have a helper and a friend that will lead you through every obstacle
in your life. He will teach you that you are a “King’s Kid”. You have
rights and privileges that only come with being the children of God.
You access these rights and privileges by entering into the Kingdom
through acceptance of Jesus as your Lord and Savior and walking out
your kingdom rights each day, one day at a time. Never allow the
“enemy” to cause you to doubt who you are.
You are somebody special!
