Scripture - Genesis 3:1-5 MEV
3 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God said, ‘You shall not eat of any tree of the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit from the trees of the garden; 3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You will not eat of it, nor will you touch it, or else you will die.’ ” 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 For God knows that on the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
when our identity
is being questioned.”
The enemy has waged war against our identify and he will stop at nothing to take us off course. It all started in the garden of Eden. In Genesis 3:1-5 we see a conversation between Eve and the Serpent. This is where the problems start. The longer we talk to the enemy (satan) the more time we give him to deceive us. That’s exactly what happened to eve. During that conversation the serpent (satan) was able to convince Eve that God was not telling her the whole truth. She was lured away into disobedience based on the promise of “Becoming Like God…” But the truth is, Eve was already, “Like God”. She was created in God’s image. Her identity was complete the day she entered the earth. This account of Eve in the garden is a classic case of Identify amnesia. If Eve had remembered who she was, it’s likely she would not have fallen for the enemies trap. In Matthew 4:3-4, we see that Jesus has a similar attack on his identity as the Son of God. However he succeeds in declaring the truth of God’s word. Unfortunately, Eve’s lapse in judgement eventually led to sin being introduced into the world. When we forget who we are and what God has done for us, it usually leads to destructive situations in our lives.
It’s imperative that we get familiar with what the Word of God says about who we are. Walking in our identity as daughters of the king requires us to remember who we are in Christ. God’s word is our defense when our identity is being questioned. As daughters we have a rights-filled place in the Kingdom of God that is full of authority and grace. When we embrace who we are, it immediately puts the enemy on guard because he knows the power we have as a member of God’s family.
Remember, the enemy will take advantage of every opportunity you give Him. Learning to walk in our true identity is essential to living the life God intends for us to experience. It’s God’s desire for us to enjoy the full benefits of being a member of His immediate family. Let’s seek a deeper understanding of our true identity in Christ and enjoy our relationship with God as our Father, Savior and King.
Keep Your Crown On.
