Remember Your True Identity – Beloved Women - February 27, 2019

READ

See what great love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called the children of God

And that’s what we are. - 1 John 3:1 NIV

TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT

A friend and I met for lunch recently, she shared that she struggled with being approved and accepted by others. As she shared some painful experiences, I could relate with her. When people reject us, we often take their rejection personally but in reality, their disapproval is usually a reflection of their own brokenness. So rather than question her identity, I encouraged my friend to embrace who she is in Christ. I reminded her that she is a beloved child of God, who is blessed and highly favored, chosen, lavishly loved, accepted, significant, and secure.

Our identity and security are in God’s unchanging love for us. It does not depend on our performance or other people’s approval.  Because of Jesus, you do not need to struggle with your identity. The Father loves you so much that He lavishes you with His extravagant love. Remember your true identity! God loves you powerfully and passionately.

PRAY

Father, thank You for your extravagant love. Please forgive me for doubting my identity and help me to remember that my identity is secure in You. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray. Amen.

REFLECT

Imagine God lavishing you with his love as you memorize 1 John 3:1. Recall this verse whenever you are tempted to question your identity.
