If you’ve ever experienced identity theft, you’ll have a deeper understanding of what this post is about. Listen closely to what God says about you and put a stop to the lies your enemy wants you to believe.
When Jesus was in the wilderness in prayer and fasting, Satan consistently attacked His identity. Read Luke 4 and you’ll see for yourself. Each time, Jesus put a stop to the argument with the Word of God. Why, because it’s important to speak truth not only to your enemy, but to yourself.
- Create hedges to safeguard your heart.
So above all, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are. Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being, for from there flows the wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23 TPT
2. You can’t skate through life and avoid trials and tribulations. Jesus went to the wilderness to be tested. He knew and still went.
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NKJV
So next time you feel your identity is at risk, sit down with the Word and learn whose child you are and what He says about you, than use that Word to combat the lies of your enemy. He can’t refute the Word of God.
But you are God’s chosen treasure —priests who are kings, a spiritual “nation” set apart as God’s devoted ones. He called you out of darkness to experience his marvelous light, and now he claims you as his very own. He did this so that you would broadcast his glorious wonders throughout the world. For at one time you were not God’s people, but now you are. At one time you knew nothing of God’s mercy, because you hadn’t received it yet, but now you are drenched with it! 1 Peter 2:9-10 TPT
