I am a Child of God

Over the past few years God has shown me who I am as His child:.

  • I belong to God.
  • I am to please God and not be a people-pleaser.
  • I am known by God.
  • I only have to tell the truth; God will defend me.
  • I am approved by God. I do not need man's approval.
  • I was made for God Himself.
  • I don't need to figure things out.
  • I am "me"; I only need to be that. My worth and value come from God.
  • I can have confidence and be confident.
  • I am to identify myself by who I am in Christ, not by what is lacking in my life.
  • I have the approval and acceptance of the Creator of the universe. I have the praise of God. God wants me to be constant in Him. It won't matter if I am publicly praised or if I am abandoned, I will derive my full worth, sense and value from my relationship with God.
  • I am connected with the God of the universe; that is the greatest connection that there is. While I would like others to seek to be with me, I can rejoice and be content that the God who created me has sought me.
  • I don't need to be involved in a ministry to validate my sense of worth. God loves me and I am secure in that love.
  • I am free to enjoy what God has given me; to make use of these gifts to their full potential.
  • When I know "Whose" I am, I am able to act in a way that reflects that relationship. I am then secure in my position and I can freely give without requiring a positive response, knowing that it is God who will give me a great reward. I would rather be rewarded by God than by a mere human.
"We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God and God in him." 1 John 4:13-16 (NIV)

I welcome comments in response to something I have written in a blog post. I was unable to read the above comment as it was not in English nor in any recognizable language.

Lovely. Absolutely encouraging. I feel like posting this on my wall! I particulary like the way you say..."I have the approval and acceptance of the Creator of the Universe...(and all that follows)" What more can we ask for? Thanks for this, Debbie. How are you doing?
