How many of us have asked the question ‘who am I?’ In those quiet moments when you sit and look at your life, asking yourself the questions ‘what do I want? Why do I feel like something is missing? And ultimately, really, who am I?
They say that to find the answer you need to look within, that you are sourced and that inside you are all the answers. If that is true, why do so many still struggle with these things?
I believe that it is because in our humanness we resist God and the supernatural life he wants to bring us into. Because if we truly believed and fully embraced the life offered in Christ, we would no longer have the question of ‘who am I’? That question is dealt with through Jesus.
That is the question for the unbeliever. That one that does not know God. How do you truly know who you are outside of the one that made you and formed you, outside of the one who takes away the darkness? It’s impossible.
But for the one that does know God and still asks ‘who am I?’ it’s a question of understanding or unbelief. Is it because you genuinely have not searched the scriptures to discover what has been revealed about who you are or is it because you cannot believe what God has declared?
I recently heard an alarming statistic based on research done in the United States, but it is indicative of a global situation. In their study it was found that 7 out of 10 people said they were ‘Christian’ but only 6% believed the bible. 6%? Lord, we are in trouble!
This reveals what is missing and why so many Christians are struggling, sick, poor and fighting one another. We don’t know who we are according to the word of God and worse, we do not know who God is in His wholeness, we do not know the Messiah, the anointed one.
To comprehend the fullness of what you have been brought into the day you said ‘Jesus, I believe’ is a lifelong experience, it’s like a quest and an exciting journey! You didn’t just become a church goer and a do-gooder. You became a child of God, where impossibility becomes possible, where your life becomes a carrier of that light!
Christianity is a spiritual thing. It is not a moral, ethical, social society, despite how it may be presented at times. It is spiritual. God is a spirit. The one who believes in Christ is the one who worships in spirit and in truth. He has poured out the Holy Spirit. You are called to walk in the spirit, not in your ordinary ways. The whole thing is powerful and dynamic.
But we still like to retain our humanness somehow and then wonder why we are still in the struggle and questions. This is why I know that if I can help you start to grasp exactly who you are and what is possible in Christ, to taste the things of the Holy Spirit, then your business, your career, your work place, your home, is going to be impacted in an incredible way.
When our heart aches for something more that is truly a sign you need the Holy Spirit wisdom and anointing, and you need to act!
Remember what David said to his son Solomon in 1 Chronicles 28:20
‘Be strong and courageous and DO THE WORK. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, MY GOD, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you…'
Recall how God told Moses the same thing in Deuteronomy 31:6-8
‘Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dream of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you’.
And Joshua was told also
‘Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.'
Even Jesus said in Matthew 28:20
‘And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age’.
So, if our question shifts from ‘who am I?’ to ‘who is the Messiah? Who is Jesus?’ and you pay attention to the longing of our heart and start to take action in that direction, you’re going to start to find clarity you’ve never had before. You’re going to find yourself more centred in the Kingdom of God with the ideas and concepts that only the bible can reveal.
What is your heart urging you to do? What are you afraid of missing out in your life if you keep ignoring the cry of your heart?
Faith and action go together. You are incredible, because of what God has done for you. Believe it. Embrace it. You are not alone; He will never leave you.
