“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” – Psalms 139:14 (ESV)
So many people in our culture and society are unhappy because they are trying so desperately to live for the approval of others. Too often, we allow our sense of identity and well-being to be triggered by the opinions and reactions of people.
But knowing who we are in Christ will enable us to live life as God intended. Therefore, our peace and security should not be threatened by difficult people and circumstances.
If we would define ourselves by God’s words rather than the world around us, we will come into a greater awareness of who we really are. The more you agree with God about your identity in Christ, the more your life will begin to reflect your God-given identity, purpose, and destiny.
