Day 10

Who Do You Think You Are! (Part 2)

Calling those things that are not, as though they were (Romans 4:17)

Here is a major life question: Does our experience cre- ate our identity, or does our identity create our experience? The answer is . . . (drum roll please) . . . our identity creates our experience. Remember, those who think they can, and those who think they can’t, are both right (consider the spies in Numbers 13 and 14). What we believe about our- selves will either bind us or launch us. When it comes to who we think we are, God is calling us to believe His Word instead of negative experience. He says “Consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God . . . ” (Romans 6:11), and “Let the weak say I am strong” (Joel 3:10). Abraham “did not consider his own body, already dead . . .” (Romans 4:19). Satan, on the other hand, wants us to focus on our failures and lack. A battle rages in our souls concerning what to believe about ourselves. Do we “call ourselves” by our negative experience or by God’s promise. Proverbs 23:7 declares “As (a man) thinks in his heart, so is he.” Let’s think God’s thoughts about us, and not anything else.

Declare: I am a new creation in Christ. Old things have passed away. All things are new. I am strong in Christ. I am who the Bible says I am.
