"So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." - Genesis 1:27
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
The enemy seeks to make a weakened Christian a pawn in his game, as he manipulates and attempts to bring harm to the family of God. When we believe in our identity in Christ God declares over us, we are strengthened and built up in the faith, but when we exchange His truth for the lie of some other identity, we become weak and open our lives up to be victimized again and again by the devil who comes only to kill, steal and destroy (see John 10:10).
"...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." - Isaiah 40:31
The enemy is terrified when God's children come into the true knowledge of who they are in Christ, all that Jesus won for them on the cross, and what they were created to do (God's PURPOSE for their life) -- because he knows that if they step into their true identity in Christ, they will walk in authority against his evil schemes and advance God's Kingdom (displacing His).
Believing lies creates a victim mentality, and creates a vulnerability consciousness which is susceptible to accusing God of not being just or faithful.
When we live according to an identity based on lies (from relatives, friends, co-workers, etc.) we have believed, it downgrades our lives and causes the favor that we were created to walk in to dissipate.
OCCUPY THE BLESSING OF YOUR CHRIST IDENTITY
When you come into the truth of who God created you to be through your identity as His son or daughter, it is important to begin living from that truth.
When you break agreement with lies and begin to not only agree with truth but align your faith with truth (through AFFIRMING and MEDITATING on the inheritance scriptures), then truth will break forth in and upon your life.
Now is the time for the sons and daughters of God to arise in truth, favor, and authority. Now is the time for you to arise and walk in your DESTINY in Christ that you were called to display to the world.
