Remembering who you are is a powerful tool against anxiety and fear. This year, I have learned the power that the phrase "I am a child of God" has. This identity holds freedom, it holds hope, it holds purpose.
Believing that you are a child of God removes the power of lies, discouragement, and the chains of this world.
Speaking that you are a child of God stops fear in it's tracks as it creeps up on you.
Living and breathing this identity opens yourself to the Spirit of God to fill you. He brings a powerful presence of peace in the face of crippling anxiety.
When you forget that you are a child of God, your heart fills itself with destructive thoughts, impulses, and spirits that where never meant for you. When you know that you are a child of God, you are emptied of these things, and left with room to praise and worship God. When the name of Jesus and thankfulness are on your lips instead of lies and fear, the Spirit of the Lord comes and completes the victory that was always coming.
You can pray this phrase, you can whisper this phrase, you can sing this phrase, and it is true every time. You were not created to live the perfect life and always have good opinions from others. The successes of this world are not where your hope and identity are meant to be placed in because they will fall. But your identity as a child of God will never fall. His love for you is steady and constant. It does not require you to impress. It is complete.
Take a moment, put your hand on your heart, and in the spirit, speak this truth, that you are a child of God.
