A list of God's unchanging truth through His promises to help you remember your identity and who He says you are through faith in Christ Jesus.

I don’t know about you, but I can be my own worst enemy.

Why is it so much easier to think about wh0 I’m not rather than remembering God’s unchanging truth about who I am?

You’d think that after years of living with this bad habit, I’d learn to consistently take my negative thoughts captive so I can replace them with God’s truth. That I’d be better at thinking less about who I am and more about whose I am!

But I’m so easily distracted by the wrong voices.

God’s Word tells us the unchanging truth about our identity … a truth that is fully grounded in God’s love.

I need a truth pep talk because I don’t believe God wants us to dwell on frailties and failures when He has given us everything we need to remember who we are in Him.

So, I’ve made a list of God’s promises to help me remember who He says I am and I pray it blesses you.

As you read these verses, put your name or a personal pronoun in each blank…

Let’s Pray…

A Prayer Thanking God for His
Unchanging Truth About Your Identity

Father God, Thank you for Your promises that tell me who You say I am in and through my Savior Jesus. The “Accuser” of my soul wants me to focus on my weaknesses and failures telling me that I should focus on my guilt and shame, not Your gracious and merciful love.

You gave Your Son, Jesus, and He gave His life so that I might live freely forgiven guided by Your Spirit to live for Your glory. That is the truth You say in Your Word about those who KNOW, TRUST, and LOVE You.

Your Word says, “Our identity” is that we are Your people because You called us out of darkness into Your marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9–10) And Jesus is the Light who shows us the Way to Life with You that lasts forever.

When I am weak and discouraged, please help me cling to Your unchanging truth that tells me I am Yours through faith in Jesus because of Your grace, mercy, and love. In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.

A list of God's unchanging truth through His promises to help you remember your identity and who He says you are through faith in Christ Jesus.

I’m learning that…

When you and I take our discouraging thoughts captive and replace them with God’s unchanging truth about our identity…

Then and only then can we have what we need to live according to God’s will for us.

He wants us to live freely confident that we are His children, friends of Jesus, chosen, loved, and citizens of heaven. We are God’s masterpieces safe in God’s love.

I want to keep this close and change my thoughts more quickly because in Jesus … it is always well with my soul.

It’s well with my heart and mind, too! And by the power of the Spirit, God says it is well with your soul, too.

We would love to pray for you.

  1. Goodness! I have had that problem for years; being my own worst enemy. Years ago, I had a very dear friend (this person has passed on to Heaven now) to tell me that! I had never thought of it before, but it sure did wake me when I was told. Thank you for this post and the verses that I can insert my own name into. I have repeated some of them many times, but it never occurred to me to add my name. I will copy and paste them and for sure will do that.
    When friends let me down or I am hurt ( and I am a very sensitive person) I take it on myself and I do tend to lecture “ME!” Is this just human nature?
    Deb, you are such a good witness and such a wise person with your Bible and Christian knowledge. You help us all so very much. I guess I never would have thought you would have this same problem. It is good that we, all of us who are your followers and friends, can work on this together. This site you have created has been such a blessing to me and I know to all of the other fine people who are followers. Lasting Christian friendships have been made here (Kathy, you are a dear friend to me, thank you) and I love and look forward to reading the new ones on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
    All I can say is “thank You” for your friendship and your love and support.
    Hugs!!! and Much Love!

    1. I think we are a lot alike, Sue. Whenever I had a disagreement with a friend as a child, my mom would always challenge me about the ways I could have been more understanding of their point of view and what I might have said and done to make the situation better. Since that time I have always replayed conversations and over-analyzed my attitudes. It took me a very long time to accept God’s love without my need to be “good girl.” I need to be reminded of His love promises all the time.

      Thanks so much for your kind words. I’m truly thankful for you and Kathy, and the many others who bless me each week. Many hugs to you, dear friend!

      1. Kathy Francescon says:

        Oh my goodness, Deb! I have always had such a low self esteem anyway, and I am so critical of myself about everything! But knowing I am fearfully and wonderfully made, sure helps! And I ditto Sue’s beautiful words!! What wonderful and wise comrades God has blessed me with in You and Sue! I have yet to get my email fixed…things have been so crazy these last few months. But I haven’t forgotten! Lov u and praying for you, dear friend!

        1. Love you too, Kathy! I have always been hyper-critical of myself. With God’s help, I want to turn that into humility while remembering who I am simply because God says so. Blessings and hugs, dear friend!

    2. Kathy Francescon says:

      I ditto everything you said here today!! And you are a dear friend to me also!! Having downstairs windows installed today, so I did read Deb’s post, but didn’t have the time to send a comment! Hope you are having a great day!! Lov and hugs!

  2. Thank you, Deb for everything you give us thrift these devotionals. They are priceless and I cherish them so much. I constantly fill my own mind with all my failures, all my wrongs, just knowing I can never be good enough for God. I have sinned far too much, even when I knew what Iv was doing was wrong. How can God ever forgive me for those things? Please pray for my peace, and that my husband would come to Christ, and that my children, who are all baptized and understand and believe in Jesus, would truly follow and worship Him. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so very much for your kind encouragement, Krista. Nothing is beyond God’s ability to forgive. He just wants us to receive His mercy and grace through faith in His Son and our Savior, Jesus. Remember the story of the Prodigal Son. I love that the Father is waiting and watching for His son to return from sin and when he does, the Father runs to him, embraces him, and throws a party. You’ve turned to Him. It’s time to celebrate! I am praying for you and your husband. May the Lord be with you and bless you!
