Who Am I?

by Steve Robinson

Many people think who you are is based solely on what you do.Ask someone about themselves, and they will usually tell you about their vocation or some of their hobbies. It is as though our entire existence is based on our productivity. However, we are far more than the sum of our achievements. The God of the universe created us in His image! Being created in the image of God is tremendous. Take a moment to soak in that thought. So, what does it mean to be created in the image of God as it relates to our identity?

First, God knew who you were before your birth. Our Scripture today tells us God created our inmost being. He didn’t just create your physical body—He also developed your personhood. He knows you.

Second, God didn’t just create you as an afterthought. The psalmist tells us in Psalm 139:13, For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb, which means your identity is no mistake. God planned your life and every detail of who you are. You are no accident. You were made by God and designed for His purposes.

Finally, you are a masterpiece. The psalmist goes on to say in Psalm 139:14, I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. You are unique because you are made in God’s image. Your identity stands apart from every other creation in the universe. Never doubt your value and the love God has for you. God’s love led Him to send His Son to die for you so you can have a rich, restored relationship with Him.

As you think about your own identity and value today, keep in mind you were created in the image of God. Be sure to thank God for the work He did in making you. Go about your day living as a true child of the King.

As you engage with God’s Word:

● What is God saying to you?

● What does it mean to you?

● What action step do you need to take?

After you reflect on these questions, bring everything to God in prayer.
