Know Who You Are

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
    from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
    the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and of might,
    the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—

Isaiah 11:1-2

The Spirit of a mighty warrior is upon you.  You are bold and courageous because the Spirit of the Lord lives inside of you!  You are NOT a weak, faint-hearted, Christian!  You are called to stand in the Lord’s strength and anointing.

God wants you to know who you are.  You are dynamic and powerful!  When you know who you are the even the Devil fears you! So, he tries to deceive you with lies. When YOU realize who you are in Christ, and when the devil sees you coming, he thinks God is approaching because you are walking around in your Father’s clothes… the righteousness of Christ Jesus and the full armor of God!  You are not just a bride who rests in his arms; you are a confident bride who stands by his side and knows who you are!

You are what God says you are! Do not listen any more to the words of doubt the devil wants you to believe; listen to the One who loves you and rejoices over you. The One who sustains you every day. The One who created you - the Creator of all - God Almighty!

Let us pray:
Father, I now feel my faith rising inside of me!  Infuse me with courage and confidence.  You have said I am powerful, filled with Your Spirit, and made in your image and your Word is true of who I am.  I believe your Word and declare it, and I will not believe the lies of what the devil claims I am.  “I declare right now, I am strong and anointed and I have the Spirit of a mighty warrior!”  We will run together, so I will fulfill your call upon my life.  I thank you, Father, for who You have made me. Amen.
