Beware of counterfeit identity
Scripture Reference: “you, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. – Galatians 5: 13
It’s your Father’s opinion about you that counts, not that of the world’s or anyone’s for that matter. The devil has tried right from the beginning of time to corrupt God’s original plan for man, and he succeeded at first. He suggested to them that God was trying to keep something from them. He told them they would become like God if they ate from the tree, and guess whom he spoke to first – yes, Eve, the woman (Genesis 3: 1-6), but Adam and Eve didn’t realize that they were already like God; they were made in His image. They didn’t need anyone trying to convince them, they were already like God, but didn’t know it. However, the damage had been done, because the result of their disobedience not only severed their relationship with God, but it also affected their relationship with one another.
Suddenly, their perfect love affair was marred with accusations and ‘casting blame’ – Adam told God, ‘The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate’. Can you imagine how Eve felt? She was already feeling guilty and bad for disobeying God and being the cause, but to be accused by her ‘knight in shining armor’ must have been devastating.
It’s your Father’s opinion that counts, not man’s!
Daily digest: God did not make you be what somebody else wants you to be.
Prayer: I resolve that no more will I let other people press me into their mold. I’m going to be what God wants me to be. I’m going to do what God wants me to do, and I’m going to fulfill the plan that God has for my life, not somebody else’s plan for my life.”
