Who Am I

Divider

Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?

Exodus 3:11


Have you ever struggled with who you are in Christ? Sometimes we struggle with our inner feelings about ourselves in contrast to what God sees or how other people perceive us. We can struggle with our weaknesses and wonder if God really meant to use us for the building of His kingdom.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote in his book, The Cost of Discipleship, about his struggles with people’s perceptions versus how he saw himself. He wrote, “Who am I? This or the other? Am I one person today and tomorrow another? Am I both at once?” His vulnerability reveals how even solid believers in Christ may question who they are in Christ.

This dilemma is a part of our Christian journey as long as we live on this earth. We will feel ourselves being pulled by our own inner failings that may not be outwardly evident. We may stumble here and there, yet our hope isn’t in us but in the Lord. God knew us before He called us with a holy calling and purpose.

We need to embrace God’s ownership and acceptance of all of us—spirit, mind, and body. Everything about us that is good and bad He already knows about. If we would rest in His love, we then find peace and freedom. The love of God for each one of us is overwhelmingly powerful and accepting. He wants us to know Him even when we fail.

Our responsibility is to keep coming to our Heavenly Father regardless of where we find ourselves in this lifetime. Dietrich found his peace and penned his powerful words “Whoever I am, Thou knowest, O God. I am Thine!”

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to find my identity in You and You alone. Help me to let go of anything that threatens to pull me away from walking in Christ. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
