We live in a world where everyone seems to be given a label.
In a social media rich world we can define ourselves by likes, followers and comments.  We find our worth in what others say about who we are, based often on a highlight reel, manufactured viewpoint.
Our own self perception can be flawed too, affected by the voices of our past and our failings, shaped often by quickly spoken reactions of people that hold important roles in our lives.
But who are we really?  How do we know what voice to listen to?
The most important voice to listen to is that of God.  Our creator.  Who sees ALL and knows ALL, and loves us in the midst of everything we are.
We all need reminders of what He says….

1.       I am fully forgiven and free from all shame and condemnation (Romans 8:1-2, Ephesians 1:7-8, 1 John 1:9).


2.       I act in audacious faith to change the world in my generation (Joshua 10:12-14, John 14:12).


3.       I overcome my fear and anxiety; I trust in the Lord with all my heart. God is with me (Proverbs 3:5-6, Philippians 4:6-7, 1 Peter 5:7, Isaiah 41:10)


4.       I am able to fulfill the calling God has placed on my life (Exodus 3:9-12; Psalm 57:2, Colossians 1:24-29).


5.       I am fully resourced to do everything God has called me to do (Deuteronomy 8:18, Luke 6:38, Philippians 4:13).


6.       I have no insecurity, because I see myself the way God sees me (Genesis 1:26-27, Psalm 139:13-16, Ephesians 5:25-27).

8.       I am completely whole- physically, mentally, and emotionally (Psalm 103:1-5; Matthew 8:16-17, 2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Peter 2:24).


9.       I am increasing in influence and favor for the kingdom of God (Genesis 45:4-8, 1 Samuel 2:26; Acts 2:37-47).


10.   I am enabled to walk in the sacrificial love of Christ (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17, 1 John 3:16, 4:9-12).


11.   I have the wisdom of the Lord concerning every decision I make (2 Chronicles 1:7-12; Proverbs2:6, Ecclesiastes 2:26; James 1:5).


12.   I am protected from all harm and evil in Jesus’ name (Genesis 50:20; Psalm 3:1-3; 2 Thessalonians 3:2-3).
