I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14

I attended a job interview a few weeks ago and my interviewer asked me the following questions: how would your line manager and colleagues describe you?

I responded with the value that I brought to the organisation and what I accomplished, but that’s not really who I’s what I do.

After the interview it got me thinking on Jesus’s question “ Who do you say I am?” [Mark 8:29; Matt 16:13]

In God’s eyes who you are is not based on what you do, what you have done or what you hope to do.

Here’s how we usually tend to describe ourselves to others online [check social media profiles], in person when introduced to someone at an event…

I am a _____
Employee of
Graduate of
Expert in
Resident of
Citizen of

In God’s eyes I am _________
A Child of God
Redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ
Chosen by God
Fearfully and Wonderfully made

So, regardless of my marital status, parental status, employment status…..the constant and unchanging identifier is who God says I Am…

The lyrics from the song No Longer Slaves to fear: I am a child of God sums it all up for me [*search online for the song]. I could have this song on repeat play all day long…my identity is in Christ and God…not in what I did, did not do, hope to do or will do or what someone says or does not say about me..

Someone said: We are not defined by our failures, mistakes, situations or circumstances. Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.

You must settle it within your heart that God’s opinion and what His word says about you are what matter most.

Look in the mirror, declare God’s Word over your life each day…you will be amazed at what you’ll discover and just might be pleasantly surprised at who you see looking back at you in the mirror…

Get God and Heaven’s perspective of who you are – it will free you from endless stress and seeking validation and the approval of people.

Dear Lord, thank you for helping me to see myself through your eyes.

Enjoy your life. Remember who you are and whose you are…
