True Identity – By David Ibiyeomie

Psalm 82:6 – I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

An understanding of who you are is the beginning of triumph in your Christian adventure. Your true identity is who you are in Christ Jesus; not what you do

John 10:34 – Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

You must understand that in the hierarchy of the spirit, you are superior to the devil. God has given you the power of attorney to exercise authority over Satan and gain dominion over the affairs of life. {Matt. 16:19} {Matt. 18:18}

Being born again is a shift in identity; a change of citizenship. It transforms your entire being and grants you freedom from the law of sin and death –Col. 2:13

Tribe, race, nationality or position does not determine what you will become; it is who you are in Christ that determines that. Your perspective plays a vital role in knowing who you are.

As an heir of God’s kingdom, you are decorated with royalty and distinction. You are empowered with an uncompromising authority to reign as a king over the devil and his cohorts – 1Peter 2:9

The world is waiting for your manifestation as a son/daughter of God to bring liberty to mankind. You are a solution provider, a carrier of signs and wonders.

New birth is not just a ticket to heaven; it is also a gateway to a world of signs and wonders. If everything on earth belongs to God, then you are entitled to enjoy the riches and live a life of comfort and pleasure here on earth.

Do you know who you are? You are a spirit, a goD, ambassador of Christ and the salt of the earth. Until you know your true identity as a Christian, believe it and behave likewise, you cannot achieve it. You cannot rise higher than your thoughts; what you believe from the scripture about you will determine the kind of future you will experience

2Cor. 10:3-5 – For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Therefore you must beware of what you think for when your thoughts are directed towards failure, after a while, it will begin to manifest through spoken words and then, actions. Nothing becomes a reality in the life of any man until his mind is able to accommodate it.

Finally, your authority and placement in life is a function of your faith and the efficacy of your faith is a function of the quality time you spend with the Word of God which is the only source of faith. Enjoy the authority God has given to you here on earth as His child and make sure the generations coming after you hears about you by leaving your footprint in the sands of time.

God bless you in Jesus name, Amen!!!
