Who Told You That?

“Then he asked, “Who told you that…” Genesis 3:11
I recently started working through the “Quest” by Beth Moore.  It’s a journey to a more intimate relationship with God.  It’s fascinating, enlightening and challenging all at once.
The Quest is based on answering five different questions: Where, Who, What, Why and How.  You hear these questions asked a lot in different ways for different reasons.  It’s great asking them about my relationship with God.
I love the second question she poses, “Who told you that?”  She is asking us to introspectively think of how we define ourselves.  Then answer the question, “Who told you that?”.
For instance, as do most women, I struggle with my body image.  If I define myself as fat, who told me I was fat? Who put the thought in my head? I could easily answer the question by looking at the cover of the latest fashion magazine.  Culture and the world around me tells me I’m not a size 2 everyday in a myriad of ways. It’s a constant bombardment. To combat that lie, I need to find out how God sees me.  To God, I am the Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19). I am the apple of His eye (Psalm 17:8).  I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).
Do you see where I’m going with this?  Who are you going to let define you?  The world around you or the one who created you (Gen. 1:26-27)?
I wanted to remind you today of who you really are:
You are called of God (2 Tim.1:9)
You are Chosen (Thessalonians 1:4)
You are the Apple of His Eye (Psalm 17:8)
You are being changed into His Image (2 Cor. 3:18)
You are a New Creation (2 Cor. 5:17)
You are the Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19)
You are Forgiven (Ephesians 1:7)
You are Redeemed (Gal 3:13)
You are Blessed (Galatians 3:9)
You are Above and Not Beneath (Deuteronomy 28:13)
You are Elect (Colossians 3:12)
You are Victorious (Revelations 12:11)
You are One in Christ (John 17:21)
You are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made (Psalm 139:14)
You are Set Free (John 8:31)
Don’t forget it!
