What we believe about ourselves shows in our daily choices. What we believe about God shows in our daily choices too.
Our daily choices reveal our accepted identity. Do we see ourselves as beautiful and wondrous creations by God? Or do we see ourselves as products of mere happenstance with no purpose for our lives?
Take some time to evaluate your daily choices. What are you prioritizing in your life?
A lot of us try to hide our shame and fear in the daily choices we make. Do you overindulge in something to escape? Do you avoid people or circumstances out of fear? Do you prioritize a hobby, sports, or entertainment over your normal responsibilities?
Shame serves to keep us paralyzed and in bondage. When we are ashamed or fearful of something, we’ll make choices that line up with the lies that go along with our shame and fear.
When we’re stuck in oppression like this, hearing God’s voice and the truth about who we are in Him is hard to decipher.
So far this month, we’ve been looking at the subject of identity and how the world sees identity contrasted with what God sees as our identity.
In order for us to agree with God’s version of identity (which is the true reality of our identity by the way), we must choose to see ourselves as God sees us. Look over the last few blog posts on identity and honestly answer what your view of identity is.
Getting out of the funk of lies that strive to tear us down by devaluing us is hard. However, it is possible with our Creator’s help. Spend time this week looking at how your daily choices reveal your accepted identity. Then spend time reading through different passages in the Bible while asking the Holy Spirit to help you better understand how the Father sees you. Start with Psalm 139 then go with Ephesians 2. After that, let the Holy Spirit lead you.
Watch this video of Proskuneo Ministry singing “I Am Yours” and ask God to reveal to you your true identity in Him.
