Who are you? No really, who are you? The enemy has sought to distort who people are and his narrative is seeking to pick up steam. People are not sure their gender; their sexual orientation; their color; and the list goes on. Whoever would have thought this would have even come into our mainstream discussions? These narratives have been in heart of the enemy for millennia, he just waited until the opportune time to release them into the narrative, but God has a narrative that is greater, stronger, more powerful than any deceptive narrative the enemy is seeking to propagate. You see, the enemy has three goals, to steal, to kill and destroy (John 10:10), he does this by getting us to buy into his deceptive narrative, so he can control us, but God through Jesus has come to set the captives free from this demonic narrative. This is not some reactionary plan the Lord had to devise when the enemy released this narrative. Rather it is an ancient truth that was spoken long before even Jesus walked the earth.
King David said in Psalm 139:13-18 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand—when I awake, I am still with you” (The Voice).
Did you hear what David said? David knows in his knower that God made him. Do you realize, you know God made you, that is why the enemy is trying to change the narrative about who you are as a man or as a woman? Did you hear David when he said that all the days of our life are written in a book before one of them came to be? You are words! You are a scroll! You are designed specifically for this time in history! Is it any wonder, the enemy is trying to distort your identity, for in doing so he thinks he can alter your destiny. But God, knew this was the enemies plan, so when He made you, He wrote your in a scroll, and He made a decree about you, that maybe you never considered before. Listen to what God says…
Isaiah 55:8-12 “My intentions are not always yours, and I do not go about things as you do. My thoughts and My ways are above and beyond you, just as heaven is far from your reach here on earth. For as rain and snow can’t go back once they’ve fallen, but soak into the ground and nourish the plants that grow, providing seed to the farmer and bread for the hungry, so it is when I declare something. My word will go out and not return to Me empty, but it will do what I wanted; it will accomplish what I determined. For you will go out in joy, be led home in peace. And as you go the land itself will break out in cheers; the mountains and the hills will erupt in song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands” (The Voice).
You are words, you are a scroll and you are not going to return to God void, you are going to accomplish what He sent you here to do. All you have to do is agree with the scroll that is written about you. All you have to do is submit to the One who made you. All you have to do is be who you were created to be. But how do you learn this information about yourself, you must read your Bible, you must pray, you must worship, you must spend time with God. He made you words and if you trust Him, you will not return to Him void. And if that is not enough, look at what is awaiting your becoming who you were made to be…
Romans 8:19 “For all of creation is waiting, yearning for the time when the children of God will be revealed” (The Voice).
You are words and all of creation is waiting on you, let’s stop resisting and start receiving the truth that will set us free!
