LORD’s Reason For Who You Are
By Thomas Downes
God has a reason for you. He has given you a name that He refers to.
He has also given you the Name that you can call upon, as well as refer to in worship, and in your prayer life.
Your name gives you an identification. When people
speak your name, they are identifying you with all that you do, and all that you are.
When you are walking with The LORD, they are identifying you with the obedience they have seen in your life.
Not all people will agree with you and how you obey The LORD in your walk. But The LORD has His own reasons for who you are. For He says to you: “You are Mine!”
Your name , at times, might be used as a point of ridicule. it may be spoken at times with utter contempt because you are not following what they feel is being:
“Part of the crowd.”
“Part of our group.”
“What he says to people is an embarrassment to listen to!”
doesn’t seem to respect our way of doing things.”
“I can’t identify with him/her at all…”
The Spirit of The LORD, Who is in you, is really the righteous Presence that is setting you apart from them.
For you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
And He does not impute sin. The very Presence of the Holy Spirit in you is what is convicting those who can’t comprehend you.
The LORD has a reason for who you are. Your very presence, while carrying
His Presence, is employing. the manifestation of the sons of God.
For all creation is crying out for the manifestation of the sons of God. And you are it. God has a powerful reason for who you are in Christ.
That is why the adversary, the Devil, wants to shut you up. But you are of God, little children, and that evil one touches you not, for greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
This is why The Word of God must dwell in you richly.
Your victory is totally dependent upon it.
The Love of God is shed abroad throughout
you heart by The Holy Spirit.
The Spirit of Prophecy takes ahold of you because your believing heart is being immersed in the Love of God by The Holy Spirit.
There is no fear in this Love, because the fear is being cast out by the Love of Christ.
Fear has to do with torment. If torment has had a hold in your life, then you have not been made perfect
in love, for perfect love casts out fear.
Cast all of your cares upon Him now, for Jesus cares for you. He cares about your sense of self worth. He cares about your cares in life.
He cares about where you are. He cares about who you really are. He is about to reveal to you His own reason for who you are.
For He is saying to you: “You Are Mine.” “Nothing
can take you out of My Hand.” “You Are Mine!”
