Daily Devotional- Who the Real You Is
Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.” – Romans 12:3
Who are you? It’s a complicated question, isn’t it? On one hand, your self-concept is rooted in your family background, your personality, the belief systems you’ve been taught, and the key people in your life. On the other hand, you may not be who you think you are. God is the author of your true identity. He knows exactly how He designed you. He knows the gifts He’s given you to fulfill the purposes He’s called you to.
When you learn God’s view of you—who you really are—everything begins to change, and living a life of true spirituality becomes possible. As you let God transform your mind, the worldly script that runs through your mind changes. That means your feelings of unworthiness or of pride, the way you relate to others, your thought life, your dreams and goals, they all change too.
