Who are you?

At low points in my life I have wondered – how would things have looked if circumstances had been kinder? Would I have turned out more educated, more wealthy, more socially accepted? Would I have become famous?

But then I remember… “This is what the LORD says, he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid.” (Isaiah 44:2) 

God doesn’t need wealth or things to make us into the people we are. He uses his creative heart. He moulded our bodies and he moulds our hearts. We don’t have to be afraid that we have missed out in life. With God we are enough.

    Eva, again such deep thinking. Thank you. I’ve found I can have deep insecurities if I’ve been born with lots of stuff too. I fear losing it. I’ve asked, “who am I if I lose all this or am too old to use it?” That’s scary too. The Lord spoke to me through this: “Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom and let not the mighty man boast of his might and let not the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts, boast of this : that He understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness on earth, for I delight in these things declares the Lord.” My focus can be on the wrong things. My identity is tied to knowing Him.

  2. Hi Lani. So very true. Our identity comes from him, and we can live it through him, no matter what we have or don’t have. We can be secure in him, no matter what we have or don’t have. Thanks.
