"God Says: I Am Revamping Your Sense of Identity!"
Beloved, are you struggling with feeling overwhelmed lately? Have you been feeling like a disappointment and a failure to yourself and others? If so, the
Lord wants to encourage you today.
This is what I heard the Lord say:
"I am revamping your sense of identity yet again, My child. You have been worrying
and discouraged because the things that you used to be—the things that gave you a sense of identity—are no longer. Those things no longer exist, and this has caused you a great amount of sadness.
Master Sculptor Is Revealing You to the World
"However, My child, I allowed these things to be stripped away because I am unveiling yet another layer of who you really are.
"Notice that the way you think about things and the way I think about things are different. If you were a sculpture in progress—a block of marble—you would be worried about all the pieces you were losing as I chipped away at various
pieces of you. However, all the while, I would be delighting in each chip that I removed, because each piece I pulled away from you revealed a little bit more of your true form to the world. That is what I am doing in your character and heart right now; I
am revealing you to the world.
"In this world you have trials and tribulations. You live in a sinful world, but I am forming you into My image. So piece by piece, like a master sculptor, I am removing
the effects of sin from your life. They are falling off of you like scales. But, My love, this work is necessary. This process is necessary.
"I know you feel hurt as I remove things that bind you, but
soon you will feel so much freer than you ever felt before. You took your identity from certain things that you no longer needed, but I am answering your prayers to be free from the shackles that bind.
Are Secure in Me
"My child, you are secure in Me. You are loved in Me. You are who I made you to be. You are in Me, and I am in you; in Me you live and move and have your being. And since I gave you your
very 'being'—your existence—then I am within My rights to dictate, decide, and determine who and what you are. This 'who and what you are,' according to My opinion and My opinion only, is the only aspect of your identity that matters. Everything
else will fall into place if you remain abiding in Me.
"You are secure and safe in Me. I am reforming your sense of who you are. I am re-securing your sense of favor; I am tying you to Myself and bringing
your attention to the security of the ties that bind you to Me. I am revamping your sense of identity. Too much and too often you have looked to the external to discover who you are and what you can do, but I remind you again that in Me you live and move and
have your being.
"You can only exist—truly exist—when you are hidden in Me. You can eke out an existence elsewhere, but it will not be fruitful. Only in Me can you not only survive but thrive,
as I have made you to do. You were born to fly, you know.
Help Is on the Way!
"I hear your frustration right now. I hear the cry of your heart.
And I want you to know: HELP IS ON THE WAY. MY help is on the way. Indeed, I am helping you even now; but the help you are looking for is on the way. The help you expect but have never experienced before is on the way. The help I give to you, that no other
can give, is on the way.
"Just abide in Me. Stop worrying, fretting, wishing that things were different. Stop beating yourself up because you can't do any better. Do what you can in obedience to Me and
ask Me to do the rest; I will. I will help you.
You Are More Than a Conqueror
"Beloved child, you are more than a conqueror through My Son Jesus.
You feel like an absolute failure, but you are NOT. You feel inadequate—woefully inadequate—but you are not that either. Allow Me to minister to you tonight, in the night seasons...expect Me to show up for you and speak to you...I will. –Love,
Your Doting Abba Father."
