We are Who God Says We are

Reading for the day: Romans 8:14-16

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.15 So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father. 16 For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.

Words hurt. The first encounter you had with this was probably as a child in school. For some people, being called names by others affects how they feel about themselves. As an adult, the problem gets worse.

The reality is that you can’t do anything about what other people call you, good or bad. What you can control is what name you will answer to and how you will respond. Our first instinct is to react in kind and hurt them as much as they hurt us, but that is not God’s way. It only continues the cycle of hurt and pain.

Read the scriptures above. Living your life as the person others decide you are to be makes you a slave. You are under their control when you change who you are supposed to be to suit them. If you believe that you are worthless based on someone else’s assessment, then you will live a defeated life.

Stand up for yourself in the name of Jesus Christ. You are the child of a King! God has dominion over everything and everyone. Accept His opinion of you over all others because His only motive is love.

Prayer Suggestion: Lord, teach me to believe in my soul that I am who You say I am. Remind me again when others try to tear me down with their words.
