So who has this? Between work, family, and ministry life we can quickly become overwhelming. I need reminders each day of who has this or that. I need reminders each day of: • How much my Lord loves me. • What He did on the cross for me. • His promises that come true. • His provision for my life. • His protection. • He has a plan for my present and my future. • He is in control, not me. • I am not alone. • I do not have to do anything by myself. • I can trust Him for all things in my life. • That He wants the best for me. • That He is my friend, my father, my husband. • He is good enough. • His word is good enough. • He goes before me. • He has me in His Hand.
Taken from Neil T. Anderson Satan’s Lie • You are a sinner because you sin. • Your identity comes from what you have done. • Your identity comes from what people say. • Your behavior tells you what to believe about yourself.
God’s Truth • You are a saint (one declared righteous by God) who sins. • Your identity comes from what God has done. • Your identity comes from what God says about you. • Your belief about yourself determines your behavior.
