Your Identity Is Not Found Here by Krystyana Lux
We often find ourselves trapped beneath the undertow; whether it's in our relationships, self-talk, or everyday movements. We see the chaos of our daily motions as more than what we were made for and inadvertently blind ourselves from the truth of who we are as disciples. We question the validity of our callings for something we desire more. Perhaps we, as devoted Christians, have come to complicate our identity in the Cross because we've mistaken our placement as being grounded rather than lifted to the provision of the Lord.
When in truth, the troubles we witness within our current seasons stem from a misunderstanding of how our identity aligns with the Holy Kingdom.
You see, the discord in our movements is redeemed and uncomplicated simply because we are not indebted to our seasons, rather, endowed with an identity gracefully curated by the provision of God. We cannot submit to the things we walk through when our Most High God has never allowed us to submerge underneath the surface of circumstance. And what's truly incredible, is that God's grace doesn't end at the border of our set path, it instead, carries us through and fulfills us as children seeking the Kingdom. "The Lord's faithful love does not cease; His compassion does not fail." Lamentations 3:22
We are His — and it's through Him that we are set free to live in glory. Not the other way around.
So, instead of casting ourselves into the bewilderment of whether or not our seasons conform to us; it's time we let Him simplify what we have made complicated within. Through this, understanding that our identities aren't found in the motions, but within the blood of Christ. Resting assured, that He acknowledges us as stewards tending to His plans rather than as individuals struggling to make ends meet.
No longer do we need to feel as though we're lost in His provision.
