YOU ARE YOU(Self Identity, not Pride)

“Today you are You, that is
truer than true. There is no
one alive who is Youer than
You”-Dr. Seuss

Nobody knows you better than you. Therefore, nobody should bring you into what you are not. People tell you who they want you to be. If you allow men to validate you, they will control you and “Lord” over your life. As a matter of fact, knowing your true identity is not synonymous to pride as many think it is. Pride means boosting in your achievement and becoming unsecured about other people’s achievement. However, knowing your true identity makes you humble.Humility in the sense that, you know who you are and you are not threaten by any man’s feat neither are you seeing other man’s performance as inferior to yours. Please note, low self esteem is not humility, rather, it is a lack of identity of the one who lives in us that makes us who we are.

“It is Christ who lives in me both to will and to do of His great pleasure “-Bible

When you really know who you are, you don’t have to prove anything to anyone.People struggles with the need to impress other people at some level. And much of the pressure, fear and stress we experience in our lives is caused by our need to impress others. Know this, only by doing our best is our deed acceptable before God and not by trying to impress men.

Can you imagine how free we would be if we just lived for God and didn’t worry about what others think about us? How wonderful would it be to know that you don’t have anything to prove and you’re satisfied being who God created you to be.

Friends, We need to know who we are in Christ, what we can do and what we can not do, base on variety of purpose and assignment. We need to be humble about what we can do, and we need to accept certain things we can’t do. Too many people are proud of what they can do and bothered about what they can’t do.

You are who you are when you discover that you are 1000 times bigger inside than you are outside. Living in your weakness is not a function of who you are but it is a product of what the devil wants you to be. You are not weak, you are stronger than you ever imagine. Develop your mind by studying books of great achievers, especially in line with want you see yourself becoming. Feed your Spirit by seeing your true self in the mirror of God’s word. By doing these consistently, you are becoming bigger, better and wiser everyday.
