Identity Theft


Who am I?


It is one of the big fears of our time.
 The loss of our identity, our paper identity thru theft.
Those who it has happened to, go on a roller coaster ride of emotions
like denial, fear, embarrassment, anger, rage and hopelessness.

There is another kind of identity theft
and it happens when the enemy, who comes to rob and steal,
snatches away the belief in who we are ...
when this happens
we can also go on a roller ride of emotions
leading to hopelessness, fear and anxiety.

So today my question is:
 Has it been a while since you declared your identity
or are you even sure you know
who you really are?
 ( a "litmus"test would be this:
 if I asked you right now
 to declare who you are in Christ,
would you strain to tell me 
or would it even feel unnatural, uncomfortable
speaking out loud who God says you are)


 So to help out, I am posting below a few Biblical truths.
If you are weak in your identity or
if you have not declared who you are for a while
.....the way to get strong again and
steal back what the enemy has stolen
 is to take the ones that speak to you personally
make a list
 then recite this list.
 at least once a day,
         out loud. 
You will be amazed at how powerful
you will begin to feel
 as the Spirit  is stirred up in you. 
You will discover that
         you can absolutely-
           take back
  whatever the enemy has stolen
.....your true identity

I am complete in Him Who is the Head of all principality and power (Colossians 2:10).
I am alive with Christ (Ephesians 2:5).
I am free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2).
I am far from oppression, and fear does not come near me (Isaiah 54:14).
I am born of God, and the evil one does not touch me (1 John 5:18).
I am holy and without blame before Him in love (Ephesians 1:4; 1 Peter 1:16).
I have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16; Philippians 2:5).
I have the peace of God that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7).
I have the Greater One living in me; greater is He Who is in me than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).
I have received the gift of righteousness and reign as a king in life by Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17).
I have received the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus, the eyes of my understanding being enlightened (Ephesians 1:17-18).
