When we look around, we are aware of criminals lurking to take from us for financial or personal gain. We are always proactive about identity theft. We create passwords, shred information, and we are always on guard for our privacy. We do not want to become victims of identity theft, but what about spiritual identity theft…Whether you believe it or not everyday our identities, that were given to us by Our Creator, are under attack by our spiritual enemy who will use any strategy to make us slip and lose passion in our walk with God. The enemy wants to steal our desire for God, because he know that if he can take that away the rest is history. Satan has a strategy to destroy you! #FACTS
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (Be focused and serious because the enemy is sneaky and wants to destroy you.) 1 Peter 5:8
A while back the enemy was about to destroy me.. My identity had been snatched, I had become so consumed by life that I did not have time to glorify God. I constantly made excuses for not having enough time for God, before long my life had become toxic and drained by hanging out with people who did not value me. I had become addicted to hurt and I kept running back to relationships that were causing me so much pain. It did not take long before my thirst for God had become dry, and I had let the enemy creep in and steal my identity! I felt worthless and I had been robbed of my self-worth, purity, self-esteem, freedom, and that’s just to name a few. He had taken control of my thoughts and actions and I allowed it. I allowed it so no need for sympathy… I allowed it and it was my job to take my authority back!
Do you find yourself in the words that you are reading? Do you feel as if the enemy has taken your identity and you want to be identified with Christ again. I just want to let you know that you’re not alone in this journey. Can I tell you something? You have the authority to take back everything that the devil has stolen from you through our Savior. I don’t know what he has stolen from you. I know at one time in my life the enemy stole my peace and self-esteem, but once I surrendered my life to Christ, the new struggle began with the unfailing love and forgiveness covering my relationship with God. Stop being ashamed of your past, the failures, mistakes, & toxic people you allowed in your life. Your Spirit is suffering and this is the reason you feel drained and like life has no meaning. However, you are the only one who can solve it. Surrender right now to God. You can be free today. You can look in the mirror and love yourself again. Regardless of your size, color, hair texture.. You’re beautiful. God made you to be a Queen. This is why you can not have any and everything.. You are chosen and you deserve the very best!! The struggle is real but losing your identity is death to your Spirit. Take it back by force… You are FAR too precious, beautiful, intelligent, and courageous for that. God desires your everything.
The only true freedom is in Christ alone.. Everything else is a counterfeit!
