This morning I was praying Psalm 2 and it opened up like a flower in the spring. Did you know that our identity as sons and daughters is a today decree God is making over you? Today is always today, it is never yesterday, nor is it tomorrow, it is today and today the Lord is saying, “I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord: He said to me, you are my son (daughter), today, I have begotten you.” As I was praying this, the Lord revealed so clearly our identity is a today word. Today you are His son, today you are His daughter, today you are begotten, today! Hebrews 3:15 says, “Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as did in the rebellion.” Today, His decree coming from His throne today, is you are my son, you are my daughter, today I have begotten you.
This is huge, because without a today knowing of your identity, you will not be able to exercise your authority. Identity always precedes authority. Psalm 2:8 says, “Ask of Me and I will surely give the nations as your inheritance and the ends of the earth as your possession.” When you know who you are, you inherit nations, for you are an heir of Christ, and you possess the earth. What? Yes, it’s absolutely true, people become our inheritance, and the earth becomes our possession. Genesis 1:26-28 establishes our identity as male and female, sons and daughters and then gives us the command to inherit people and possess the earth. My friends, when we know who we are we exercise our authority biblically. When we don’t know who we are we seek to control, possess and plunder people, and relinquish the earth. But God is decreeing today, today, today, our identity and authority, so we can be in alignment with His word.
Now do you understand why the enemy attacks your identity? Because he knows then he can hinder your authority to inherit people and possess the earth. It is time to align with God’s order, receive your inheritance and possess your possessions. Time to sing, I know who I am!
