LET ME TELL YOU WHO I AM
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. (Matthew 16:16)
“You need to find your identity from God; you are an individual created to reflect His glory.” – Mark Hankins
In Acts 19, the seven sons of Sceva, without having a relationship with Jesus (which would give them authority to use His name), tried to use the name of Jesus to cast out evil spirits. An evil spirit said to them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are you?” Because they didn’t know their identity in Christ, the scripture says, “The evil spirit…leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.” (Acts 19:16) It is important to understand who you are in Christ because the devil knows if you know your identity.
The devil will do everything he can to steal the Word from you to keep you from understanding your new identity in Christ. He wants you to see yourself in the natural. He will even get you to study your family tree, which never produced anything but a bunch of nuts! You need to find your identity from God. You are an individual created to reflect His glory.
Confession: I am a totally different person In Christ then when I was born. I was created to reflect His glory!
