Spiritual Identity Theft by Sheri Rose Shepherd
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. - John 8:32
Many times, the biggest battles we fight are the lies we believe and speak about ourselves. As hard as it is to fight those lies, it is even harder to watch our daughters and granddaughters walk in the same lies we do. The reality is, the world offers no truth. If we don’t learn to walk in God’s truth, we will leave a legacy of lies for our own children to battle.
If you have experienced spiritual identity theft and have lost your confidence in who you are in Christ, hang on to this truth... Jesus gave His life to give you a new identity--the kind of identity that is carved so deeply on our hearts that it can never be erased by another person’s hurtful words. Jesus promises us that the truth will set us free.
I don’t know who broke your heart or what lies the enemy is whispering to you, but I do know that in today's video you will discover that you do not have to let others’ hurtful words define you anymore. Remember, the person that spoke those lies did not give their life for you, as Jesus did to prove your worth... the truth is you are a treasured child of the King!
God's Letter to You
You are royalty even when you don’t feel like it. How you feel about yourself will never change the truth of who you are in Me. You are My treasure, and I have chosen you. If you ever begin to doubt your significance, just look to the cross and remember I gave My life to prove your worth. I see your heart and I know you fight to find truth. So start by recognizing who I am: the King of Kings and Lord of Lords--and your Daddy in heaven. Saturate yourself in My truth and you will discover how loved and treasured you are.
Your Lord Who is Truth
Treasure of Truth
You are the Lord’s treasured princess, and how you feel about yourself will never change who you are in Christ.
