Topic: Who Are You – (Joel Osteen Devotional, 31st August 2023)
Finally they said, “Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?”
Imagine someone asking you what the Jewish priests asked John the Baptist, “Who do you say you are?” What kind of answer would you have? John’s response was to quote the words of Isaiah, “I am a voice shouting in the wilderness, prepare the way for the Lord.” Rather than say what he felt or what other people were saying about him, John said what God said about him. Is that how you would respond?
Why don’t you start saying what God says about you? “I’m talented. I’m successful. I’m prosperous. I’m free. I’m valuable. I’m a masterpiece.” What you say about yourself is going to become a reality. What you say gives it the right to come to pass. Now quit saying negative things about yourself. “I’m so undisciplined. I’ll never get out of this neighborhood. I’ll never break this addiction.” You’re going to become what you believe. You don’t have to feel it, you just have to believe it. If you believe it long enough, you’ll not only feel it, but you’ll see it.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You alone have the right to define who I am because I am Yours. Thank You that You call me blessed, redeemed, forgiven, healthy, overcomer, and a masterpiece. I will call myself what You call me and become who You say I am. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
