I must tell the truth. It’s what a true child of God does. I’ve been struggling with a lot of heavy issues in the last several years. The enemy of our souls is relentless and isn’t going away. Ever. This is my new revelation.
His evil is perpetrated through many different sources. When God pulls back the curtain to educate you about reality, it hurts and it’s exhaustive. When you know who you are, you are like a big neon billboard saying “destroy this”. You will be a target your whole life.
How does he accomplish his destruction towards you? Through people, plain and simple.
When you know who you are and whose you are, you are very powerful, confident, influencing, an instrument of change, a light, an example, a motivator, a source of wisdom, a source of prosperity, a source of energy, a vessel of God himself. When God has delivered you from rejection, insecurity, jealousy, hatred, fearfullness, and shaped you into a genuine person, “the real deal”, you are powerful and the enemy is pissed. He wants you back….back in your dungeon, back in your hole, hands tied and mouth gagged. He wants you useless and speechless. He will do anything to get you back. Anything.
The fight is on. Your IDENTITY is the prize.
Why is your identity so valueable? It’s the question we all find ourselves asking at some point in life. Who am I? Why am I here? Where do I belong? These are exactly the areas that will be attacked and come into question.
- Who loves you? NOBODY
- What is your purpose? YOU AREN’T NEEDED AND YOU ARE USELESS
- Where do you belong? NOT HERE
The truth is, I LET the enemy steal my identity. By giving in to rejection from people, we begin to believe who they say we are.
I believed the lies.
The lies that I’m not loved, I’m useless, I don’t belong, I’m this, I’m that, all the messages their comments spoke to my emotions. I allowed the wounded person’s thoughts of me to override God’s thoughts of me. I gave away my power.
These are completely contrary to what I know to be true. How could I have let this happen? I am a seasoned warrior. I am an announced woman, hewn in God’s fire. I have forgiven so much evil in my past. I walk with Him, closely.
There must have been a crack, an opening, an unhealed wound….what was it? Was it me at all? It’s obvious hurting people hurt people.
In this blog post I am only sharing the PROBLEM that came against me. I will not be sharing what I learned and how I am dealing with it going forward. I have walked out of this scorching life lesson wiser, stronger and thankful.
