TOO FAITHFUL TO FAIL DEVOTIONAL

Pst. Charles Osazuwa
They know not,neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundation of the earth are out of course. I have said, ye are gods ; and all of you are children of the most High. Ps 82:5-6
We are engrafted into the family of God through Jesus. However, your actions can make you alien to the kingdom as long as you don’t know who you are.
Knowing God and not following after His commandments shows that one is not conscious of who he/she is in Christ. You cannot love God and disobey Hod commandments unrepentantly. That brings identity crisis. What you do not place value on, cannot be a blessing to you. If you are a prince .you must work ,think and conduct yourself as a prince to be considered as one.
Genesis 25:23 says,”… And he sold his birthright uto Jacob “. Esua did not understand the importance of his birthright so he did not place value on it. That’s why he sold it for a plate of meal,not realising that the birthright as the first son guaranteed him meals in the house already. When your integrity is dented : when what you say is different from what you do,it simply indicates the fact that you haven’t discovered who you are yet : hence you are having an identity crisis.
Until the battle of identity is won, you cannot unleash God’s potentials in you. The devil will always fight the discovery of you true identity so that you will not know the power you carry inside you. Your authority lies in your identity.” Behold, I give unto you power….”luke10:19,this is your authority in Christ but the devil will always fight your authority if you do not know who you are.
Your authority is in your identity and your identity is in the word of God , ” for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they came out Luke 4:36. As soon as your identity is found in Christ, you become a joint heir with Jesus(romans 8: 17)which gives you the authority and power to recreate your works and live a fulfilled life.
1. Father, help me to know who I am in Christ Jesus
2. Lord Jesus ,I silence every voice of deception in my life.
CONFESSION: I know who I am. I’m a child of the living God. I prosper on every side and I can never fail
