“If satan can lead us into believing lies about who we truly are, sending us down a spiral of confusion, then we cannot live in the fullness of who God says we are. We can’t even accomplish the purpose and plans God has for us if we are exhausting ourselves with thoughts and emotions that cloud our view of what He says. If we have built our identity on anything less than what God says, we will settle for what we think we deserve rather than God’s best for our life. On the flip side, we might chase after things that make us feel ‘complete,’ missing that our completeness comes from Him and Him alone.
Not knowing our true identity makes it impossible to move out of life’s mud pits clean. We can’t help but take some of the mud with us in a way that can blur our vision. The mud hardens and stiffens, limiting the flow of God’s Spirit, creating a barrier in our mind because we can’t help but replay the old record of self-defeat and pain.
Not understanding, believing, or walking in our identity in Christ is like living every single day in a mud pit! When we do not have our identity built on the foundation of God’s truth, we wear a false identity mud pit, taking it with us everywhere we go!
Imagine carrying around a mud pit!
As you carry it around, it becomes your filter on life. It clogs the way you think, the way you talk, the way you respond to life circumstances, the way you give, and even the way you receive. This pit not only feels endless, but it can actually be endless if we do not grasp this concept. It’s one of the most disguised mud pits, so closely intertwined with who we think we are that it is almost unrecognizable as a lie. We really don’t recognize it as a pit because we find ourselves believing ‘it’s just who I am.’
In short, this identity pit has defined us.” -Life is Muddy (book)
