This morning, as I sipped my coffee in bed (thank you, husband), I was scrolling down the newsfeed on my favourite social media app. Over the years I have noticed such an interesting phenomenon, one which I have dipped into every now and again as curiosity got the better of me.
There seems to be an increase in people playing this one particular game that tells them who they are based on their favourite movie character, their profile pictures, the colors they choose and many other themes. People want to know what animal they are most like or what Disney princess embodies their personality.
Why is this app so popular? I believe there is a hunger in every human heart to find out who they really are. Some kind of stirring that we all feel to some degree, hinting to the fact that there is more to us than what we have uncovered. It’s great to be able to discover our significance at the tap of a screen, but the truth is that we will need to venture a little further into realms of the unseen, if we want to discover who we truly are.
“I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.”
Psalm 139:14 AMP
There is only one place we can go to find our true identity; into the arms of the One who created us. The One who knitted us together in our mother’s womb, according to His design and purpose for our life. Think about it… everything you need to fulfill His plan for your life, has been wired into your very being.
As I studied this verse this morning, looking at the rich meaning of each word in it’s original language and context, I realised that I have very little understanding of who I really am. How do I know this? Because I have forgotten to marvel at the workmanship. I have been satisfied by the “tap to play” button on the screen of my smartphone rather than tapping on the heart of the One who made me. The One who wants me to discover my true identity and the glorious purpose for which He designed me.
Let’s not forget to marvel at the masterpieces we are, but let us behold the One who will show us exactly who we are. As we look deeper into the mirror of the Word, we will find ourselves in the resounding truth that we have been fearfully and wonderfully created, in the image of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We will discover that we have been positioned in this time and in this place, for a specific purpose. May we tap into the heart of the Fathers, so that we can play the part that we were created for.
Make this your declaration today:
“God, I praise you for I am truly a masterpiece. You have done a marvelous work in me and I will live to bring glory to you.”
Thank you that we don’t have to rely on the world to show us or tell us who we are. Help us to focus on your Words of truth. Show us your glory Lord, until we can see ourselves the way you see us. Until we believe that we are who You say we are: Strong. Free. Overcoming. Bold. Loved.
In Jesus Name!
Today I hear the Father say: “Precious One. Do not forget that I rejoice over you with singing. Do not forget that you are my delight. You are not a burden to bear. You are one that brings great joy to my heart. When the battle is raging, you need to guard your heart with this: I will never stop rejoicing over you. My victorious banner over you is Love. It is finished.” ❤
