The Building Blocks of Faith – “Who am I?”

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! (Romans 5:8)
Psalm 103:1-10Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! 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 desires)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!
