Have you ever been asked who you are? What was your answer? For those who are successful they will tell you I am a doctor, engineer, a business man/woman who owns that and that.. they identify themselves with their possessions or achievements but what happens when you don’t have all those things, when you feel like a failure. When you have battled with your identity all your life and it dawned on you that you haven’t accomplished anything.
Some people will describe themselves as No One important or I am ‘Nobody’. When I read in Jeremiah 1 vs 5 it says, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations." God told Jeremiah that he was of importance. He knew Jeremiah from the beginning. He knew who he was and who he gonna be He was born and ordained to be a prophet and that shows every each one of us was born and ordained to be something.
In psalms 139 vs 13 – 18, David knew who he was. He knew his origin 13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. 14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. 17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.
We sometimes compare ourselves with other people and we fail to understand that God ordained us differently. Some prophets like Jeremiah, David as King, some as artist, some as ministers and so on. God created us in His own image. He knows who you are as a person, He knows your purpose. Today let’s go back to the very roots where we came from and ask God to show us our identity, our Purpose in Him.
Above everything else, know that you are a child of God, a daughter or a son of the king. Knowing this with confidence will phase out all the problems we struggle with identity.
