Unspeakable Joy Devotional

God says you are…….I read an article yesterday that was written by Priscilla Shirer. She recently played a roll in the movie “Overcomer”. I am going to share a part of her writing:

Read Ephesians 1 and 2 and write down everything God says you are. Rehearse that, and post it in places you’ll run into, whether it’s your bathroom mirror or car dashboard, so you can remind yourself that you’re not rejected; you’re chosen, loved, redeemed, and forgiven.

Finding your identity in Christ will impact every decision you make, from choosing a career or spouse, to posting on social media. Before you make a decision, pause and give yourself the grace to ask, ‘does this stem from one of the lies of insecurity, fear, and rejection?’ Or am I making this decision from a place of truth? When we pause, it gives us a place in our heart to see the root of why we’re making this choice, and if we need to, recalibrate and make the right decision.

Think about how many relationships we choose out of a place of insecurity and how differently we’d make choices if we truly believed, ‘I am enough’. We’d choose different friendships, romantic relationships, career paths. Coming to grips with this issue of identity and recognizing your significance can change the course of your life.

1 Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chose generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
