“Brave Enough for Today BECAUSE HE IS”

 

“…when your identity is in Christ, your identity is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Criticism can’t change it. Failing can’t shake it. Election results can’t ruin it. Lists can’t determine it.

When your identity is in the Rock, your identity is rock-solid. As long as God is for you, it doesn’t matter what mountain rises ahead of you.

You aren’t your yesterday, you aren’t your messes, you aren’t your failures, you aren’t your brokenness.

Let’s believe and put on repeat all day: You are brave enough for today, because He is. You are strong enough for what’s coming, because He is. And you are enough for all that is, because He always is.”

—Ann Voscamp

 

 

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Ephesians 2:10

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Romans 8:1

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

John 1:12

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God


 

My take-away:

In Christ I am:

A new creation, His own possession proclaiming His excellency, His workmanship, without condemnation… His child…”brave enough for today, strong enough for what’s coming, enough for all that is,  BECAUSE HE ALWAYS IS.” His sufficiency is forever and always absolutely, positively sufficient for me.

 

Learning to lean deeper in His Everlasting arms,

Paula
