What is your name? No, not the name that’s on your Birth Certificate. Your God ordained name. It’s that name that you should know. That very name will remind you of who and whose you are. It’s not by accident that you were named that. Know the difference between your name and what people have labeled you as. Oh yeah, there is a huge difference!
Some may have labeled you as damaged goods, yet YAWEH sees you a classic that cannot be duplicated. You may know the name as a hustler, YAWEH says an Entrepreneur! To some you just might be The Queen of Petty, when actuality you are The Queen of prospective. You see it doesn’t matter what others call you. What did God say?!
Trust me growing up in a home where nourishment couldn’t be found. To where the adult always said, “Do as I say, not as I do!” Where you had to suppress every feeling good or bad. When the name calling came and you didn’t even understand it. You just knew that deep inside you are not what they called you!
I am supplying you with the following scriptures of who YAWEH says you are. Read, Meditate and live by them. They will help you in knowing yourself, your name and your identity through Christ Jesus, the Redeemer of Your Soul!
- I have been chosen of God, and I am holy and beloved.
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience … (Colossians 3:12).
- Christ is my life, and I will be revealed with Him in glory.
When Christ (who is your life) appears, then you too will be revealed in glory with him (Colossians 3:4).
- I have been raised up with Christ.
Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God (Colossians 3:1).
- I am a citizen of heaven.
But our citizenship is in heaven--and we also await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ … (Philippians 3:20).
- I was formerly darkness, but now I am light in the Lord.
… For you were at one time darkness, but now you are the light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light (Ephesians 5:8).
- I am a member of Christ’s body and a partaker of His promise.
… The Gentiles are fellow heirs, fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 3:6). (See also Ephesians 5:30.)
- I am God’s workmanship created to produce good works.
For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them (Ephesians 2:10).
I LOVE YOU TO LIFE!
