Find Yourself: True Identity, How Does God See You?

Why Does True Identity Matter?

Do you want to find yourself or are you searching for your true identity? Who are you are outside of your DNA, earthly character, and personality? Are you a woman struggling to find who you are?

Many of us Christian women label ourselves unhealthily and negatively.
Some of us have no clue of our true identity and worth, and if we feel we do have some understanding of who we are, we have identified ourselves poorly.

Trauma, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, self-doubt, memories, and bad seeds planted by Satan can all cause us to formulate negative views of who we are.

It is imperative for us as Christian women to demolish the negative views we have of ourselves. These negative views create strongholds in our lives.

Negative self-identity can stall us from walking in God’s purpose for us as believers. It may also make accomplishing a specific assignment or calling more difficult or extend into a longer process.

I pray that none of us settle for a reality that prevents us from being all God has created us to be.

In this series, we explore what our true identity in Christ looks like.

What Scripture Says About Our True Identity

The following scriptures define our true identity in Christ.

We Are “Children Of God”

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.

John 1:12

The day that we believe in Jesus and accept him as our personal Savior, we are supernaturally born again of God. We become children of God.

To become a child of God, a person must do the following….

If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:9

Receiving Jesus is the act of welcoming Him into your life to be Lord over your life.

God desires that we all be His children!

We as believers have the best Daddy in the whole wide world and universe combined. He is a loyal and loving Father. He never fails as a Father and is always present for us.

We Are “Loved”

9 God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. 10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

1 John 4:9-10

In the verses above, two sacrifices emphasize why God loves us. The first sacrifice we see is that God, The Father made a sacrifice by sending His Son to this earth, “so that we might have eternal life through him “.

Secondly, Jesus sacrificed his very life for us. Jesus took on the wickedness of our sin and underwent the most horrific death.

Jesus suffered for us and, God The Father watched his only Son suffer.

Remember that God Almighty loves you the next time you have a negative thought about yourself or when the enemy tries to tell you are not loved.

We Have “Worth”

19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

We are created by God and our bodies belong to God.

God bought us with a price. The blood of Jesus is the price that was paid to redeem us from sin and secure eternal life for us.

‘For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.’

Romans 6:23

God sees worth in us, so much that he paid the wages of our sin.

Also, our bodies are precious to Him. I say this because our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. For this reason, we are called to care for and not defile our bodies.

In Conclusion

These verses share only a small bit of what scripture says about our identity. I look forward to exploring identity more in upcoming posts.

How does being a child of God, being loved, and having worth make you feel about yourself? Are you beginning to see yourself for the special person you are?

These truths strengthen me on my journey to developing a healthy self-esteem. They give me the reality check I need when false thoughts enter my mind.

Share with me in the comments, how any of the three examples make you feel.
