// identity has been heavy on my heart the past twenty four hours. i have struggled with identity for a long time, unknowingly. so, i am challenging myself to memorize the scripture verses that have to do with my identity. if you are up for the challenge, join me! i will post the verses to memorize at the end of every post. please declare these scriptures over your life and watch how God changes and/or reveals new things about who you are. feel free to comment below about anything the Lord shows you as we dive deeper into this. my heart is to start a conversation and to learn and grow with you.

// identity. identity. identity.

// God is so good.

// continually renewing your mind with Biblical truth is a vital part of a believer. "you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free" - John 8:32. satan works diligently to program people's minds to feel unworthy and unable to walk in the power of God. knowing your identity is Christ will allow you to battle satan more effectively. if you are a Christ follower than the following statements i claim are for you to claim as well.

// i am worthy! i am worthy because Jesus' blood has made me worthy. if you claim to be unworthy after the blood of Christ has made your worthy you are denying the work of Christ in your life.

// i am loved by God the Father! i am loved by God not because of what i have done, but because of who i am. "but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" - Romans 5:8. God loves me with the same love that He has towards Jesus himself. "i in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me" - John 17:23. i am valuable and dear to Him because Jesus laid down his life for me and he said that the greatest love a man can show for his friends, is when he lays down his life for them. "greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends" - John 15:13. if we don't realize the love of God, we cannot be filled with the fullness of God. we will lack His fullness in our lives until we come to know of His deep love for us. "so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith - that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." - Ephesians 3:17-19
