WHO ARE YOU?
God the Creator of the heaven and the earth has a Master Plan for the entire world. Each man born to this world has a place in God’s Master Plan. Declaration of who we are is the greatest thing we can do at a right time in order to achieve who we are in God’s plan.
The world can call you who you are not; it is left for you to confess and declare who you are to them. There are many names people like to call you, it is left for you to reject these names and make your real name known to them. The greatest testimony you can make about yourselves is confessing who you are to the world.
In his own time, John the Baptist was a man who has a peculiar place in God’s Master Plan; people came to him and expected him to confess who he is. But, he did not fail to do so. They even compared him with the Christ; call him as the Elijah of the Old Testament and the Prophets of old. He confessed that he was not the Christ, not the Elijah or the prophet, but a man sent to prepare a way for the coming of the Messiah (John 1:19-27). What a wonderful declaration!
John did not allow himself to be put in Elijah’s position. He freely confessed that he was not Elijah but a man born for a special assignment. He makes his own position known to the world in God’s Master Plan. John confession proved that no two people are exactly the same. Each man is a unique original. You are created original not photocopy; so also I was created original. There is something unique and very important in each one of us that nobody else has. Original copy is not the same with photocopy. Although, they may look alike, but the difference is clear. Because, original will always produce photocopy, but photocopy will never produce original.
God created each one of us and make you available where you are now because you have something that nobody else has. There are some peculiar qualities and personal traits that had been deposited in you to make you stand out. Never thing or act or behave as photocopy or duplicate to another person. You’re original. God created you original not photocopy. Original will only and always produce trillions of copies but photocopy will only and always remain in number two.
You are a living soul created in God’s likeness for a purpose and divine assignment which can only be carried out successfully by you. Accepting what people are calling you will only result in misfit and miserable. People may call you Abram, Sarai, failure, Jabez, barren, sicklier, debtor, Icabod, Ben-Oni, etc, but what you call yourself is most important. Make yourself known to them who you are not what they thought you should be. Confess and declare to theme that you are Abraham, Sarah, success, fruitful, healthy, and wealthy, Benjamin, Blessing, Joy, etc.
Confess who you are to the world, don’t accept what they call or the name given to you from them. Accept only the name God given to you in His Master plan. Don’t allow your situation, your circumstance or the pressure of the people to intimate you to confess who you are not. John the Baptist did not allowed any pressure or any circumstance or any situation to make him accept who is not and confess wrong thing about himself. He did not allow the present situation of his time to deny who he is.
Because of food, wine, clothes, money, position, social lives and worldly enjoyment had make millions of people deny who they are in God’s Master plan. They allow these mire things to enslave them and end up victimize.
No matter the situation or circumstance or problem that you are passing through now, be known to you that you are a king of your nation, god of your generation, and royal priesthood of your family (Psalms 82:6, John 10:34, 1 Peter 2:9). That is what God call you in his Master Plan. Don’t forget that, either a king has money or not, he remains a king. Either he has house or not he remains king. Either he was handicap or not he remains a king. Without you, your world is in doom.
You’re the light and the salt to your world, without you, your world will be in darkness and sadness. You’re where you are now in order to give your world light and make their environment sweet.
Finally, success in life is heavily hinged on us being who we are. You must value yourselves, see yourself as original and never see yourself as inferior or photocopy to anybody. Without you, your world is in doom. Thereby, rise up, confess who you are to the entire world that you are a son of the living God. Thanks and remain bless
