Title: Who Am I – 1
“You’re Not Alone”
Text: Exodus 3:11
I want to start a new series on knowing who I am in Christ. Once we know who we are in Christ we automatically become more confident in Christ and in ourselves.
People all over the world have asked the question, “Who Am I?” Rick Warren wrote a book a few years ago that instantly became a best seller on the Purpose Driven Life. Churches all over North America did services and preaching wrapped around this subject for months. The reason that became such a popular book is because everyone is looking for their purpose. Everyone wants to know why they are here and who they really are. Some of us are older now and we still have no idea who we are. The reason many people do not know who they are and have lost sight of who they are is because they listen to other people. Many in this room have been told at some point in your life that you are a failure, you are a nobody, and you are useless. Some have been hurt by words all your life.
I want to remind you that nobody determines who you are but you! Your circumstances don’t determine who you are. Your financial situation does not determine who you are. Your appearance doesn’t even determine who you are. My goal throughout this morning’s message and throughout the next few weeks as we explore this subject is to remind you of who you are.
I am not talking about who you were born to in the natural. I am not talking about who your parents are; I am talking about who you are in Christ Jesus. One of the major tactics of the enemy is keeping you from finding out who you are and he knows if he can keep you from that knowledge that he will keep you in bondage.
God does not care what your background may be. He doesn’t care what color your skin is. He doesn’t even care if you are bald or have hair. He doesn’t even care where you were born. He sees you as a potential champion. He knows that you have champions blood flowing through your veins. If you have read the Bible at all, you will find out that God specializes in making champions out of nobodies.
There are some here that have been told all their life that they are a nobody and because of the way you have been treated and because of others telling you who you are, you have started to believe them or maybe you have always believed what others have said about you. Some of us are 20 years old and some of us are 80 years old and we have yet to determine who we are. Some feel worthless, some feel they really don’t have what it takes to make it in this Christian walk, some have believed lies from the devil all your life. It is time that we stop believing lies from the devil and start believing God and taking Him at His Word. He tells us who we are in His Word and we need to start believing it. I am going to spend several weeks on telling you who you are. Some of you have been wondering, you won’t have to wonder for too long.
I want to try to help you this morning by letting you know that you are not alone. The Bible is filled with men that have the same feelings that you have this morning. It is not a new trick by the devil to get you thinking this way; he has used this same trick for thousands of years. The devil has no new tricks, he has been trying the same thing throughout all of history. It is time that we put a stop to it in the Name of Jesus.
