I never understood that God saw me a different way than I saw myself until God’s grace got a hold on me. I learned that I was seeing myself through eyes of betrayal, hurt and rejection and in turn was constantly striving for approval and perfection. When I learned that these beliefs were lies, my life was transformed instantly by grace. My eyes were filled with light and opened to see truth. I realized that the truth of my identity is how God sees me through the finished work of Christ and by grace. In this post, I would like to share truth from God’s Word about how He sees you in order to break off lies, strongholds, addictions, shame and anything that is holding you back from unlocking the door to a new life in Christ. This is your reveal…

You are reconciled in Christ! My message is reconciliation and freedom.

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
You are a co-heir with Christ.
Now if we are children, then we are heirs- heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ. If indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share with His glory. Romans 8:17
You are chosen and called by God to bear fruit.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. John 15:16
Now, speak these truths out loud to yourself. The power of life and death is in the tongue, so it is vital that you only allow the Truth to come out of your mouth.
