When we think about our identity being stolen we often think about someone using our personal information to open accounts, file taxes or to make purchases. However there is a much more sinister identity theft plaguing the earth, it’s one that leaves us confused, hurting, and wounded.
At a young age, the enemy begins working overtime to plant lies in our hearts and minds that will cause confusion and distort our identity. We unknowingly believe these lies and begin to live them out, because what we believe is what we manifest!
The lies for me started as young as 2 years old, when my dad committed suicide. Lies of never being loved and wanted, which led to me becoming an adulteress. After spiraling down into depression I cried out to God and gave him my life. I asked him what he wanted me to do, he said “go home to your husband!” Out of complete obedience I did! The first year was incredibly hard as I had to constantly renew my mind with truth, but I’m happy to say we celebrated out 25th wedding anniversary last summer!
This started my journey back to the truth of who I was created to be and reclaiming my identity in Christ. There have been many detours of other lies trying to hinder me from the truth, that I’m a daughter of the most high king, walking in power and authority, placed on this earth to make it on earth as it is in heaven!
We live in a culture of a chronic identity theft crisis. There’s nothing more crucial than knowing the truth about who we are and the freedom and power we walk in. I’m here proclaiming and shouting from the roof tops that the gospel of Jesus, Christ is a transforming gospel. It’s about way more than we get to go to heaven, it’s a gospel that says; Jesus came to restore us back to our original design as sons and daughters of the Most High King! Nothing has power over us! We can simply enjoy life, live and be all he created us to be. Using our gifts and talents to minister love to humanity!
Let’s give each other some grace, knowing that we have all had our identity stolen at some point, we’ve believed lies and we are all on this identity journey, reclaiming all that the enemy has stolen from us!
