1 Corinthians 3:9 (HCSB) “For we are God’s coworkers; You are God’s field, God’s building.”
Understanding our true identity is very significant to exercising our authority. If we don’t know who we are, the enemy will take us for a ride. It is very important to constantly remind ourselves, who we are in Christ, and equally important is, the readiness to reject any name, or appellation suggested, or projected, by our circumstances, or by the enemy.
We need to be aware that, the devil is ever ready to call us, who we are not. For instance, Goliath addressed the children of Israel, as the servants of Saul, for a space of forty days, and as long as they accepted the wrong identity, they lost the authority to confront Goliath.
When David came on the scene, he addressed them as the armies of the living God, and that is who they were. Can you imagine what difference that made, in building up the confidence, to confront the giant? David confronted Goliath, as the soldier in the army of the living God. Understanding our true identity in Christ and walking in the consciousness of it, is the key to victory over all life’s circumstances.
Today, let this truth register in your spirit man, “You are God’s field.” that is who you are, accept it, and never bargain it, for anything. It does not matter what anyone thinks about you, but it matters what the Lord says about you. The Lord says, “You are God’s field.”
In Africa, landed property is not a child’s play, when you pass by any plot of land, you will always find a notice, saying, “this land is not for sale” a trespasser shall be dealt with,” and people are ready to fight and kill, in order to maintain their property.
You are God’s property, you have been bought with a price, and you are not for sale. You are too expensive for the devil, and the Lord is not ready to bargain, or engage in any price negotiation, with the devil, on your case. Don’t give in, to the lies of the devil.
How will the understanding of your identity affect your confidence level?
Father, let anything You have not planted in me, be uprooted today, in Jesus’ name
