Everywhere I look, someone seems to be telling me who I should be. What I should be. What I should believe and make important in my life. But what I want to know is – Who does GOD want me to be? How can I stand strong in my identity in Him? To answer my questions, I turn to the book of Psalms in the Bible.
Reading Psalms has been a part of my daily morning routine for years, and this book has taught me so much about who GOD is, as well as who He is not. Because of this, I have gained a better understanding of who I am in Jesus. My identity. Knowing my identity is the thing that stops me from chasing after every new idea that comes to the forefront of our culture. it’s the thing that helps me recognize when a good-sounding truth from a smart-sounding person on TV…just isn’t truth. It’s what makes me feel grounded when I am trying to make a decision or when I have a trial happening in my life. Coming back to my identity in Jesus is the thing that makes me realize I can seriously stop trying so hard to be and do it all!
I’m passionate about sharing some of these identity-grounding truths that I’ve gained from studying the Psalms with you in my new Online Bible Study "To Know Him", in hopes that you too will know God better and can stand firmer in who He’s made you to be as a result.
