46. Who Am I? Part 3: People of the Bible Who Had to Grow in Their Identity
Show Notes

This week, we are on our final episode in this series, "Who Am I?. We are talking about some people in the Bible who struggled with their identity in who God said they were and how they themselves were able to overcome the lies of the enemy.   

 Who in the Bible struggled with their identity in Christ?

  1. Esther:  Esther was an orphaned Jew when she came to live in the palace. The world saw her as a nobody...the Jews saw her as a nobody...and she probably had to fight of thoughts of herself as a nobody, but God saw a queen who would change the world forever. 
  2. Gideon: Gideon saw himself as weak, but God saw him as a mighty man of valor who would one day change the face of the world!
  3. Jeremiah: When God called Jeremiah to be a prophet to the nations, he was between the ages of 13-16...talk about scary! Even though Jeremiah tried to make the excuse that he was too young, God had another plan for him!
  4. Moses: Moses didn’t see himself as good enough to fulfill God’s plan for his life. He had killed an Egyptian and was basically running for his life. He knew it wasn’t going to be easy to go back to the Egyptians and he wanted God to send someone else instead of him, but God wanted to use him!

Things you can do to help you grow stronger in your identity in Christ:

  1. Release shame, guilt, and failures
    1. 1 John 1:9 says that if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Unrighteousness is basically the shame and the guilt that are associated to the sin.
    2. Your sins are forgiven! You are free!
  2. Read the Bible daily and spend time in prayer daily

  3. Renew your mind to Christ
    1. Read Ephesians chapters 1 and 2
