2 Corinthians 5:17 says, "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come."
When we know who we are in Christ, then we know who we are. We no longer look back at who we used to be, we look at who we are now and where God is taking us. We can walk in confidence in knowing that, I'm telling you.
When we know ourselves, we don't have to convince others to like us, we don't have to convince others to love us, and we don't have to beg anybody to do anything for us or with us. I'm not saying we don't need people, because we all need people sometimes. I'm just saying that when we know who we are, we know how to operate from a loving, godly, and a peaceful place of confidence. No bragging, no boasting, no arrogance, and no pride, we just know, because we believe what 2 Corinthians 5:17 says about us. That's it. And nobody can knock us off of our solid place, because it's taken us too long to get there. We’re firmly rooted and grounded in Christ and we're not going back to our old ways, we're not going back to yesterday.
So, I've come to encourage those who already know who they really are, to continue your walk of strength in the Lord and the ones who are still searching, continue to seek God and do that continuously, because Matthew 6:33 says, "seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." You're on the right road.
