Who does God say I am?

QuestionAnswer Many of us spend a lot of our time worrying about what other people are thinking of us. We all want to be respected, loved, and appreciated, and we all want to be valued. When God’s perspective of us is the only one that truly matters, why should we base our identity and feeling of self-worth on the perceptions of other imperfect creatures. When it comes to our identity, the most crucial question we can ask is: Who does God say I am? The Bible is the sole source of trustworthy information on who we are in Christ and what God thinks of those of us who have been born again.

50 Important Bible Verses About Who I Am In Christ (Powerful)

We lose sight of who we are in Christ when we are surrounded by a cacophony of voices in our heads that are at conflict with our identity. Daily, I must tell myself that my identity is not defined by my failures, my problems, my humiliating moments or those discouraging negative voices in my brain. I must also remember myself that my identity is not defined by my accomplishments. In order to get Christians to lose sight of their actual identity, Satan is continually battling against them. God is always pouring out His grace on us and reminding us of who we are in His sight and heart.

  • In times when you feel as though everyone is misunderstanding you, God reminds you that He is the one one who understands you completely.

You are a child of God

With so many voices in our heads battling against our sense of ourselves, we might lose sight of who we are as believers in God. The fact that my identity does not reside in my errors, my problems, my humiliating moments or those discouraging negative voices in my brain is something I need to remind myself of on a daily basis. In order to convince Christians to lose sight of their actual identity, Satan is continually battling against believers. Throughout the day, God showers us with grace and reminds us of who we are.

We discover our true identity when we stop being “who we are” and start becoming “who we were designed to be.” “I am a daughter of the King who is unaffected by the world.” Because my God is with me and goes before me, I have nothing to fear. My dread is extinguished by the fact that I am His.”

You are a new creation in Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (verse 27) Therefore, if anybody believes in Jesus Christ, he is a new creature in the eyes of God.” ‘The old has passed away, and behold, the new has here.’ Ephesians 4:24 “and to put on the new self, made in true righteousness and holiness to be like God” (and to put on the new self). I believe that you were fearfully and wonderfully created. Psalm 139:13-15 is the 29th verse. “Because you made my inmost being; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb,” I said. It is because I am fearfully and wonderfully formed that I give you my appreciation; I am well aware that your handiwork are magnificent.

Philippians 2:13 (New International Version) “For it is God who works in you, both to will and to do according to his good pleasure,” says Paul.

Who Does God Say I Am?

It is normal for human nature to be devoured by itself. We twist our necks for acceptance and engage in a frenzied practice of comparison, without the outwardly inverted viewpoint necessary to grasp who we truly are within ourselves. We begin to doubt our true selves – what we are worth and what we are meant to do in this world. The prerequisites for our identity can be found in our priorities as they relate to God. By connecting our everyday lives with biblical truth, we may program our internal GPS to navigate us in the direction of His plan.

God’s love for us is highlighted in the narrative of the Prodigal Sons.

Despite the fact that He knew we would always fall short, He chose to love us unconditionally.

After the prodigal returns, Greg Morse describes it beautifully: “The wayward son braces himself for a smack but instead receives an embrace.” God declares that we are:

  • .loved (John 3:16)
  • .His (1 John 3:1)
  • .worthy (Zephaniah 3:17)
  • .purposed (Jeremiah 29:11)

Why Does it Matter What God Says of Me?

What does the Bible teach about God, and how does it relate to us? We must first comprehend who God is before we can comprehend who we are, according to Him. The narrative of the Prodigal Son demonstrates God’s enormous love for us, as well as our ability to choose to accept it. In spite of the fact that he knows who we are, our Father and Creator wishes a true and personal connection with us. In Exodus 3:13-15, God declares three facts about Himself that are worth noting:

  • “I Am Who I Am” is a statement of self-identification. (3:14a)
  • “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14b)
  • “This is my name forever” (3:14c)
  • “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14d)
  • “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14e)
  • “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14f)
  • “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14 (3:15)

God is not in need of anything from us. He is all-knowing and all-powerful, and He is in complete command of the universe. Theologian John Piper remarked, “There is nothing more fundamental and nothing more ultimate than the reality that God exists.” Love, justice, righteousness, forgiveness, and wisdom are all characteristics that contribute to His persona. Once we have come to terms with who He is, the proclamation of His spoken name bears the appropriate amount of weight and importance. “It’s virtually usually rendered ‘LORD’ (all capitals) in the English Bible,” John Piper asserted clearly.

Who Am I According to God’s Word?

What does the Bible have to say about my true self? God, who spoke the universe into being, wishes to communicate with us. We are a part of the tapestry that He has woven for all of creation. We can understand our intrinsic need for something greater than ourselves since we were created in His likeness. We were created to seek and experience life in contact with God, and we have been called to fulfill a specific mission. His will for our lives reflects the loving Father that He is. He is all-knowing, just, and perfect, and His will for our lives reflects the loving Father that He is.

  1. Perhaps the greatest way to convey how God views us is to use the word “redeemed.” The writer Dave Burchett stated that redemption “is the fact I have to remind myself of on an almost daily basis.
  2. Despite this, I live as if my self-effort is necessary to make up for past challenges and attempts, which is not the case.
  3. Day after day, as he embraced the warmth of his house and the restoration of his family, he was sure to recall the destiny he had deserved.
  4. The payment of a ransom results in the release of a prisoner from prison.
  5. Who are we in the sight of God?
  6. in this now.
  7. Anything and everything may be used to disprove His flawless sacrifice for our everlasting freedom.

What Does God Think about Me?

“I have called you by name; you are mine,” we are told in Isaiah 43:1 b. God made us in the same way a potter shapes clay (The NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible). God has not only created us, but He has also developed us and called us to serve Him in specific ways that are customized to each individual’s unique circumstances. In the eyes of man, this is impossible; yet in the eyes of God, anything is possible.” (Matthew 19:25-26; Mark 10:25-26) According to the context of the preceding verse, the word “man” in the original Greek language denotes the distinction between God and human beings.

  • It differentiates us as human beings, but it also distinguishes us from plants and animals, as well as from God and Christ and as well as from angels. He is speaking particularly to who WE are and to the vulnerabilities that we have that cause us to sin
  • The manner in which Jesus addressed man evokes a sense of scorn or contemptuous pity, which is indicative of our underappreciated gift of His grace. We consciously choose to sin. It is not by chance that we are here, and God does not feel sorry for us because of our proclivity toward sin. The NASB version states that “man,” or more accurately, “people,” are two-fold in nature: body and spirit. He forgives us and loves us despite our shortcomings. When it comes to conforming to God’s nature, both the corrupt and the real Christian do so
  • Because of the impossibility, we are forced to confront our predetermined fate in eternity if Christ’s sacrifice had not occurred. Despite the fact that we are helpless to alter who we are, redemption provides us with the option to be grafted into His strength and surrender our will for His way

According to John Rinehart’s book, “What God Thinks About You,” we are important, new, Spirit-filled, undergoing transformation, and representatives of God’s character. “Remember who created you, O Jacob,” the VOICE translation of Isaiah 43:1 wonderfully reminds us: “Remember who created you, O Jacob.” O Israel, who fashioned your personality?

As you can see, you have nothing to be afraid about. I, the one who created you, will return you to me. “I have chosen you and declared you to be Mine.” A love that is unattainable for man, but not for God.

Who Am I in Jesus Christ?

I am made possible via Jesus Christ. To be more specific, I am powerful, tremendous, strong, and competent. “Then who can be saved in the whole world?” the disciples questioned Jesus. According to the NIV Study Bible Notes, “salvation is entirely the work of God.” Paul writes in Ephesians 2:8-9, “God rescued you by his grace when you put your faith in him. It is a gift from God, and you have no right to claim credit for it. As a result, none of us can take credit for salvation because it is not a reward for the excellent things we have done.” According to an excerpt from John Rinehard’s book, “What God Thinks About You,” the reality of who we are in Jesus Christ is brought into sharper focus through biblical clarity: “You are no longer darkness, but light in my Son,” the Father says to you.

  1. If you are the light of the world, you are a city perched on a mountain (Matthew 5:14).
  2. You are the one I’ve picked (Revelation 17:14).
  3. You are both a witness and an employee (Acts 1:8;Ephesians 2:10).
  4. You have a bright future ahead of you (Romans 8:18).
  5. In 2 Corinthians 5:20, the Bible says, “You are an ambassador for my Son.”

How Can God Love Me?

God is able to love us because He is Love Himself. In order for them to be one as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to total oneness, I have given them the glory you gave me. After then, the entire world will know that you sent me and that you have loved them just as much as you have loved me” (John 17:22-23). John, Jesus’ closest buddy on this planet, may have known more than anybody else who we are and what God says about us. He watched Jesus’ life, which was lived out in perfect love, firsthand.

“The love of God does not save us from pain and death.

What Does God See When He Looks at Me?

“My sheep are attentive to my voice; I recognize them and they follow me. “I grant them eternal life, and they will never expire; no one will ever be able to take them from my grasp” (John 10:27-28). God sees the ideal creation He designed, but he also recognizes that humans will always fall short of it. As we travel the path of life in pursuit of Christ, He will assist us in seeing our real reflection via our daily pursuit of His Word, which we will do through prayer and meditation. The Bible is the Word of God that is alive and active today.

God purposely places individuals in our lives who will love us and vice versa, so that we may love them back.

It is possible to learn a great deal about who God sees when He looks at us by looking at the people He has placed in our life. As Jesus said, “By your love for one another, everyone will know that you are my followers” (John 13:35).

10 Bible Verses about Who God Says I am

I know my sheep, and they know my voice. They follow me everywhere I go.” The life I give them is eternal, and they will never expire; no one will ever be able to take them from my grasp” (John 10:27-28). God sees the magnificent creation He designed, but he also recognizes that we will always fall short of that perfection in our actions. During our journey through life in pursuit of Christ, He will assist us in seeing our real reflection by encouraging us to read and study His Word on a regular basis.

Except for spending time with the Creator, there is no shortcut to wisdom.

It is possible to learn a great deal about who God sees when He looks at us simply by looking at the people He has placed around us.

” (John 13:35).

We Are Who God Says We Are

We are not defined by the faults that threaten to define us, but rather by the biblical truth that demonstrates our true value. We have been made by Love to love in the same way that we walk with Love. We are here to spread the word about Him. His aim is to accompany us on our journey, rewarding us and showering us with more than we could ever ask or dream for ourselves and our families. Only by coming near to Him and prioritizing our lives in such a way that we put Him first will we be able to perceive the layers of who we are from His perspective.

Jesus Specifically Said, “I am God”

As a skeptic, I was inclined to accept Jesus as a “good man” if he came across as such. The wise sage from the past who was misinterpreted and mythicized by leaders of a movement who were either misguided or deceitful, you know the one I’m talking about. Jesus may have been a kind person and a terrific teacher, but did he ever assert his right to be called the Son of God? Friends who were more knowledgeable about the Gospels than I was told me that Jesus never claimed to be God in any of the New Testament narratives, and I agreed with them.

Don’t get me wrong, Jesus didn’t use those precise words in that context.

When God came to Moses in the burning bush for the first time, Moses was skilled enough to inquire of God about His identity.

What you are supposed to tell the Israelites is, “‘I AM has sent me to you.'” Exodus 3:14 explains how to be a good person.

After that, there was Jesus.

Take a look at how He responded: “I am not possessed by a demon,” Jesus stated emphatically.

“I tell you the truth, if someone follows through on my promise, he will never die.” “Now we know that you are afflicted by demons!” screamed the congregation of Jews.

Are you more powerful than our ancestor Abraham?

“What do you think you’re doing here?” As Jesus said, “If I exalt myself, then my glory is worthless.” My Father, whom you claim to be your God, is the one who gives me honor and glory.

You may call me a liar, but I do know him and he is true to his word; otherwise, you would be right.

During his ministry, Jesus made two noteworthy comments.

But, perhaps more significantly, Jesus addressed himself with the ancient appellation “I AM,” which was formerly reserved for only God Himself.

According to their interpretation, Jesus clearly stated, “I am God.” What evidence do we have that this was their understanding of His words?

They retaliated by attempting to stone Jesus for claiming to be God (an act of blasphemy they believed worthy of death): At this point, they gathered stones to stone him, but Jesus slipped away from the temple grounds and into hiding.

Although the phrase “I am God” does not appear in the Gospels, you will almost definitely find the ancient counterpart of the phrase there.

My simple picture of Jesus as a “lovely man” or “good teacher” had to be re-examined once I read these remarks in the Gospels.

Because Jesus explicitly said that He was God, I was compelled to rethink my beliefs about Jesus and what He taught.
