Who He Says I Am

I am an expert at letting myself down. I have high standards which I routinely fall short of. Too often I listen to the lies that are whispered, most certainly, by the enemy of all things good. Then, I start to doubt who I am and what I am here for. Continuing down this train of thought, I arrive at worry and fear.

How do I turn the impending wreck around before it is too late? I return to truth. I fill my mind and heart with what the Word of God says about me. Here are some reminders I needed today.

I am:

  • designed by him
  • the crown of creation
  • very good
  • created in his image
  • loved
  • forgiven
  • promised eternal life
  • fully known
  • free to choose 
  • redeemed
  • never alone
  • a reflection of him
  • not hidden from him
  • encouraged to come to him boldly
  • a daughter of the king
  • a dwelling place for his Spirit

I can be at peace because of who he is and what he has done for me.

You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.

You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.

You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways. 

Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.

You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.

(Psalm 139:1-5 NIV)

Thank you, Lord,
for timely reminders
of truth, and wisdom
to turn from lies.
