Your True Identity

A person’s identity can be defined as a mental model of him or herself otherwise known as self image. The question regarding a person’s true identity or self continues to be the single most asked question. Every human being at some stage in their life asks, “Who am I?” Daily, people wonder why they are alive, why their life is so empty, or why they feel there is something missing.

As children, the first things we associate with our identities are our names and who our parents are, which give us a sense of belonging and acceptance. As we grow up, we begin to draw our identity from others’ perceptions of us and how they treat us. The comments of authority figures in our lives such as parents, siblings, teachers, guardians and even our classmates begin to shape our views of who we are. Our life experiences also go a long way to shape our self belief and worth. This shows that the factors which come together to form a person’s identity go far beyond name, parental heritage, gender, race, nationality or sexuality.

The identity of any product can only be defined by its manufacturer, who knows what problem the product was created to solve, and what materials make up the product. By analogy, God is the Manufacturer of the product called “Man” and the raw material He used to make “Man” is His breath (Genesis 2v7). When making “Man”, God also decided to make this product in His image and likeness (Genesis 1v26).

Therefore to address the identity question, it is vital that we understand our source and make up. Blaise Pascal, a French Physicist, said “There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus”.

The Law of Value also tells us that the worth of a product is decided by the price that buyers are willing to pay for it. From biblical accounts, even after Satan succeeded in stealing and corrupting Man’s identity, God did everything to recover Man. This led Him to pay the highest price He could - the life of His only begotten Son (John 3v16) - that is just how valuable you are.

Once you know your identity you then need to understand your make up; to know how you are meant to function to get the best results in life. Kenneth E. Hagin made it clear that man is a spirit, who has a soul and lives in a body.
