Identity In Christ

on June 11, 2017

Lord,

Forgive us for defining who we are by this world’s standards.  Lord, forgive us for ever believing any lie that the enemy has told us about who we are, which we know is a lie and can’t be true because it does not line up with Your word and what it says about us.

Lord, because Your word says for we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us] (Ephesians 2:10).

Lord, Your word says that we are made in Your image and likeness (Genesis 1:27).

Lord, Your word says You approved us as Your chosen instrument, You consecrated us to You, You appointed us (Jeremiah 1:5).

Lord, Your word says that we are special people of Your own possession (1 Peter 2:9)

Lord, Your word says now you [collectively] are Christ’s body, and individually [you are] members of it [each with his own special purpose and function] (1 Corinthians 12:27).

Lord, we thank you that we can say that I have been crucified with Christ [that is, in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body I live by faith [by adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting] in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me (Galatians 2:20)

Lord, we thank you for the incredible quality of love You have shown to us, that we would [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God (1 John 3:1-2)!

Lord, we thank you that we were purchased with the precious blood of Jesus and made His own] (1 Corinthians 6:20).

Lord, for no job title we hold, no relationship status we have, no salary that we make and no material possession we acquire can tell us what our identity is.  Only You can tell us who we are because we were created by You.  Lord, let us be fully secure in who You say we are.  Help us to choose to believe what You say over anything else that we hear.  Let it be Your word and Your voice that we continuously hear above any others.  Lord, from here on out help us to walk in our true identity of knowing who we are in Christ Jesus.   Lord, were we fumble to realize our identity in you, reveal to us who you are because our identity can only be found in You.  Lord, where we fall short in our faith, give us the faith to be strong and know You are exactly who You say you are.

We love you, adore you , and we thank you God for all You are doing, all that’s already been done in our life and everything that we have still yet to experience.

In JESUS MIGHTY NAME,  We Pray.  AMEN!!!!
