We’re Experiencing An “Identity Crisis”!
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. I Peter 2:9 AMP
There in the United States, most people are aware of an upcoming election. Today, our minds are going to focus on a different type of poll. What type of results would we achieve if we were to screen people concerning their relationship with the Lord? Sadly to say, we would discover that far too many people who profess to believe the Bible to be God’s unadulterated Word; don’t fully comprehend its total message. Therefore as a result, the entire world is suffering and operating at a level which is inferior or subordinate to its ultimate ability.
We, the body of Christ, appear to be impaired by not knowing the power nor the authority that we possess. We have been limited in our abilities simply because we don’t know who we really are. In others words, we have been constrained by an “Identity Crisis”.
An identity crisis can occur when a person, or a group of people fail to recognize the relevancy of their innate characteristics and proceed to function from a position of their mental comprehension. Their lives are governed from the sensory ream instead of the spiritual ream. Thus, those people who are supposed to be displaying the superior characteristics of being the head; are exhibiting the inferior features of the tail. Those who are called to be that light which shines so brightly in EVERY situation or circumstance; attempt to blend into this world and its customs, ideologies, and methodologies. Therefore, WE have hindered ourselves simply because …as Hosea expresses; we have a lack of the knowledge of who we are…. And we are being destroyed!
I would like to challenge you today to think, walk and talk “outside of your box”. God has begun to catapult us into our wealthy places. He has begun to permit the return… with interest… of all that we have lost. However, unless we break this mold of the “Identity Crisis”; we will not have the ability to maintain our returns. Refuse to walk in the footprints of yesterday. Be determined to advance your current status daily. Change something, enhance your vocabulary and increase yourself in some capacity daily. Seek the wisdom of the Holy Ghost for guidance. Remember, God has a great work for YOU to accomplish. However, you must begin to suffer no longer from the effects of an Identity Crisis; but to walk as God’s authoritative voice in and on the earth…. Knowing who you are, whose you are and the person that God has created you to be!
“Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,” Psalm 139:14-16 The Message Bible
