Do you know who you are? Why you exist? What purpose you were created for? What are you suppose to be doing with your life? What is your life’s true expression? If you do not know the answers to these questions, you are experiencing an identity crisis. Furthermore, if Christ is not the foundation of the answers to these questions you are experiencing an identity crisis.
To know the purpose of why anything and anyone is created, you first have to know the original intent and thought of its Creator. Would you ask the manufacturer of a Hyundai Sonata how to fix and establish the parts of a Honda Accord? No, you would not. Although both cars are used for transportation the parts, design and identity is different. The structure, body, design and parts makes up the identity of the cars that enables you to differentiate between the two. I am sure a Hyundai Sonata has unique parts which do not exist in the Honda Accord. If you would try to repair a Hyundai Sonata with the parts of a Honda Accord it would not fit because the Hyundai Sonata parts was not the original thought for the Honda Accord parts. Although Yolanda Adams and Vicki Yohi are both singers, their identity is different. Although we each may practice a profession, our identity is different. Although a mother may have five kids, each child’s identity is different! I viewed an article this morning on Yahoo about three pregnant stars who attended the Golden Globe Awards that had on three very different dresses because their identity is different! We all were uniquely designed and created to express God through our life’s purpose that is our true identity!
The root word for Creator is create. In order to create you need to know the intent of your initial thought. God tells us in Isaiah 55: 8-9 that His thoughts and ways are not our thoughts and ways. Therefore God’s identity is different from our identity. However, Christ came to restore to us the abundant life that God originally created us in. The abundant life of us returning to our original image that is our true identity. We each have a blessing and birthrate that has been given to us. The blessing and birthrate are the marriage covenant of the anointing in our life. In Genesis 1:26-28 God said let us create man in our image according to our likeness. We were created to be in God’s image, God’s identity, God’s purpose, God’s Spirit, God’s heart, God’s annointing that is His identity.
It is time for you to come out of the conformity of your own thoughts and ways that shape your life’s purpose making up your identity crisis! Receive God’s counsel in Romans 12:2 and be transformed by the renewing of your mind into God’s thoughts and ways which is your true image, your true heart, your true soul, your true purpose, your true anointing, your true power that makes your true identity! Lean not to your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge God and He will direct your paths!
