The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]. John 10:10 AMP
Have you ever been a victim of identity theft? I haven’t, but I know people who have been. It could happen to anyone at anytime and it’s a very real threat in todays society. Thats why there are companies out there that provide security for a nominal fee. They notify you when there are attempts to use your social security number or there is unusual activity on your credit cards.
Knowing and understanding who you are in Christ also protects you from identity theft. When you’re sure of who you are and the rights you have, nothing or no one can mislead you or cause you to stray from the truth. But if you’re in doubt, the devil can sense that and rip you off big time!
Remember when Jesus went into the wilderness on his 40 day fast and Satan visited him? Do you remember what he asked? “If you are the Son of God….” He was trying to get Him to question His identity. Why? Because when you begin to doubt who you are, you begin to change how you think and what you speak.
Jesus was wise to Satan’s schemes and knew how to answer, with the Word of God. Why? Because God’s Word is always truth, it is alive and powerful and it’s the only way to overcome the enemies lies.
So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:31-32
Don’t listen to the wrong voices! Those voices that speak in your thoughts and those voices you surround yourself with. If they don’t say what God’s Word says about you, set them packing! God calls us kings and priests, prepare to reign with Him here in the earth. Take your kingdom authority and be the priest to your community, calling those things that be not as though they are.
If you don’t know who you are, no one else will either. Look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I am a child of a King! I have a right to dominate and I will walk in the authority that was given to me! Sickness has no rights in my body. Lack has no rights in my finances. I am a giver as my Father is. I’m full of love because my Father is Love. I choose to walk in Love today because it’s Love that has redeemed me and given me rulership in the earth.
“Satan, I serve you notice and send you packing! You will not reside in this temple another day. I know who I am and Whose I am. His Word is in me and it’s more powerful than anything you can or will say about me. Every trap you’ve set for me will be sprung on you. I take back every thing you’ve attempted to take from me in my finances, my health and my identity. I will no longer listen to your lies!”
It’s in Jesus’ name and by the blood I say, AMEN!
