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.
We so easily forget who we are.
Whose 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.”
● Who is making you feel less than who God says you are?
●What are you listening to that makes you doubt who God is?
You have an enemy trying to make you forget who you are!
● conspiring to harm you.
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.
Remember whose you are
When you remember whose you are as God’s child, you won’t allow yourself to be the enemy’s next meal. How do you remember whose you are in an enemy’s attack?
Stay in the Word of God.
Follow His commands.
Trust the Lord.
This is not a one time – just remember whose you are and the enemy will go away sort of process. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if that were so? But then how would our faith increase in the Lord if that were the case?
We would think we were able to do it all on our own rather than depend on the one who made us.
You have an enemy!
The enemy’s schemes and tactics are the same since the Garden of Eden. The devil even used those same schemes on Jesus in the wilderness.
What are some of the enemy’s schemes to make you forget whose you are and who you are?
His questions are meant to cause you confusion and chaos, but God’s questions are meant to clarify your thoughts.
“Did God really say?”
When we don’t actually remember what God says in His Word, we won’t know when the questions come from the enemy.
2. Twisting Truth ( LIES )
When you don’t know what God’s Word says, we can fall prey to the enemy’s lies. Satan knows God’s Word. He knows his end. He just wants you to forget that part of the story.
Knowing whose you are and who you are is important especially when the lies begin to enter your mind. Maybe you’ve heard some of his lies….
You are not loveable.
No one could love you.
You have no purpose.
Oh those are real kickers to our hearts and minds aren’t they? But God’s Word is Truth. His Word tells you that you are loved, valuable, that He gave His only Son for you and that you’re purpose is to follow Him in love.
The enemy has a few more tactics in his arsonal to distract you.
Remember who you are and whose you are!
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! God is the Creator, Father, Almighty, Savior and Light.

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.
Everywhere you go, everything you do and all around you, place God’s reminders of whose you are to help you never forget that you are His.
