If we desire to live a fulfilling life, we need to experience the abundance of God’s presence. We can not successfully live life without understanding our authentic identity. Knowing our identity is at the core of living an authentic lifestyle. Our identity consist of our spiritual and physical body. Our spiritual body is our soul and spirit that lives within the mind. The word of God tells us in Philippians 2:5, “ Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” To understand our authentic life, we must understand the mind of Christ (Romans 12:2). When we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness we began to seek the mind of Christ. Inside the mind of Christ, our authentic lifestyle is revealed and received (Matthew 6:33).
When we pursue the presence of God we are pursuing the authentic image and likeness He originally created us in. This image and likeness is our authentic identity which manifest in living an authentic lifestyle of knowing what we have been purposed to be and assigned to do. When we understand our authentic identity we attract authenticity to us and are able to live life more abundantly (John 10:10). Living an abundant life is an empowering life of being awakened to the presence of God in working in us, through us as well as working through people. We get to experience the unlimited supply of God’s grace and truth that sets us free to live authentically.
Walking in our authentic identity empowers us to boldly and confidently demonstrate the evidence of God’s saving grace (John 3:16). Every time we are faced with a challenging life situation, this is an opportunity for us to be strengthened in wisdom and understanding our authentic identity (Proverbs 4:7). Our authentic identity is rooted in God’s power, love and disciplined mind empowering us to live an authentic lifestyle (2 Timothy 1:7). Our life’s journey is about awakening to the truth that sets us free to be original, embrace our uniqueness, to live authentic as we increase in position, favor and wisdom with God and mankind.
Investing the time, talent and resources to understand your authentic identity will give you an increase of joy, pleasure and strength. The joy that comes from being in God’s presence. The pleasure that comes from knowing who you were created to be. The strength to accomplish what you have been created to do.
