Do you ever have days where you feel like you don’t know who you are anymore?
Somedays people, life and events get in the way of our “knowing” and we find ourselves wondering.
You will hear people even say, “I need to find myself!”
“Who am I?”
“Why am I here?”
Those are the days we need reminding, that we are part of something bigger….something connected to a bigger purpose. We pulled together 7 Bible verses to remember who you are and whose you are.
Do you know who you are?
What about whose you are?
When you know whose we are as God’s child, you belong and have identity.But you have an enemy that wants you to forget who you are and who God is.
The disconnect from the source of our identity is why we do not know who we are.
When we feel like we don’t know who we are, it’s because we have forgotten what Jesus said.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
● Who is making you feel less than who God says you are?
●What are you listening to that makes you doubt who God is?
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
You have an enemy!
You have one purpose wrapped up in two commandments from God.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.”
I AM knows who He is and who you are, do you?
We need to remember our identity comes from Jesus, not our job, title or bank account.
Do not be confused by what the world, magazines and social media say about who God is!
Remember who you are and whose you are with these Bible verses!
● You have the breath of the Almighty!
● Are fearfully and wonderfully made!
● The apple of His eye!
● You are lavished in His love!
● In Christ, you are a new creation!
● A child of God!

When our children were at home, we would place sticky notes on their mirrors, walls, doors, and ceiling. They would find a note in a book, in their suitcase if they were staying somewhere overnight and anywhere we could find to impress God’s Word in their life.
The verses from Mark 12, were originally recorded in Deuteronomy to Moses from God. They were true and clear several thousand years ago and still true and clear today!
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Remember what God has done, who He is and step our in confidence that you are a child of God. Max Lucado shares a wonderful message to remind you from John 1:12.
