There is a huge “Identity Crisis” in this world…but is that what they call it in the headlines ?
No…you’re not going to see it on the nightly news or in the paper…but it is a deep-rooted epidemic that is destroying hopes, dreams and potential!
Born out of unresolved insecurity, fear, shame and doubt, we work so hard to “fit in” and be accepted.
We strive – we struggle – we are sure there must be a way to finally get it right.
We go through life saying…”If only I can get to know the right people, wear the best clothes, get that new position at work., drive that fancy car and live in the right neighborhood. If only I can get the right degree, title, position or public recognition…then all will finally be well within my soul. I will know who I am…and, best of all, so will everyone else!
But – as many of you already know – these kinds of things never satisfy for very long! And there is always someone else who is thinner, richer, smarter and more successful. So…in the end, none of this makes us feel valued…or valuable. And, even with all that struggling and striving, there is still no real sense of peace or purpose!
See…the truth is…NONE of your trying will ever define who you are…nor is it going to satisfy this longing in your soul for meaning and significance.
The only thing that will ever allow you to discover the magnificent essence of who you are… is to seek God himself for answers.
It is all found in your relationship with the Lord…and knowing what He sees when He looks at you!
In Him all things were made. (John 1:3)
He knows the plans and purpose He has for your life. (Jeremiah 29:11)
All the days ordained for you were written by God -before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:16)
So, the answer to the question, “Who am I”…is NOT about what you do!!! It is about who you are in God’s eyes.
And you were fearfully and wonderfully made!!! (Psalm139:14) You are beautiful – You’re one-of-a-kind – You are special!
And yes – that means YOU!!!
God made you exactly the way you were meant to be. And if you will simply listen for his voice, you will hear Him say, “You are OK just the way I made you – now run with it!”
You are precious in His eyes…and He is anxiously waiting for you to stop all the craziness…He is saying, “Please, dear one, STOP looking for love…and self-worth…in all the wrong places! Come to ME…seek ME for answers and direction. “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.” (John 14:6)
You are designed and created perfectly for the plans and purpose God has for your life.
Aren’t you ready to go to the one who planned and created you to get your answers? Isn’t’ it time to seek the Lord and find out what he has in store for you?
Seek God and you will find all you have been looking for…and much, much more!
“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33)
