Everything Is An Overflow Of Your Identity
Understand that a genuinely fruitful life only emerges from a healthy, God-centered identity. Sadly, Christians unnecessarily struggle with a variety of things. I know dozens and dozens who are plagued with father-issues—wrestling with feelings of inadequacy and fear.
Thankfully, something can be done. Let the Heavenly Father transform your life and position you for greater impact.
There is much gained from what Paul wrote to the believers in Galatia. He said, "Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, ‘Abba, Father.’ So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child" (Galatians 4:6-7a).
I have found that it is vital to grab hold of the "spirit of sonship." If that underlying component is absent, it will hinder growth and minimize impact. If you don’t possess that deep sense of connection, you will never embody the beauty or the wonder.
It is time to truly appropriate God’s kindness and love. Be convinced that He wants to bring transformation in your life. Know that the Heavenly Father wants you to be whole and complete in Him.
I invite you to solidify your relationship with God. Out of that intimate connection, comes a clear sense of identity and strength. You become one who’s inexplicably filled with goodness and life.
I know some who believe that they're going to bring a powerful impartation of the Spirit. However, if not walking intimately with the Lord, they honestly won’t have much to offer.
Speaking to a crippled man at the Beautiful Gate at the Temple, Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk” (Acts 3:6). What he was saying was this: “I’ve actually got something to give. Out of the overflow of my relationship with Jesus, there’s supernatural power to impart.”
Peter reminds that you can only give out who you are and what you’ve encountered. If you want to see a transformation in others, it must come out of a dynamic relationship with Jesus.
In the end, everything is an overflow of your identity.
