Read Time3 Minute, 7 Second

If you’re like me, you’ve battled with identity at least once in your walk with Christ. The transition from living through the flesh to living through the spirit is not always smooth. After being bombarded with lies about who I was meant to be in the world, it took a lot to retrain my mind to see me like Christ. I reckon there is a plethora of women who are still struggling with their new identity in Christ. The thing is, our adersary never stops trying to convince us we are not who God says we are. It doesn’t matter how long we’ve been saved. Satan is very good at his job; that’s why the Bible lables him the ‘Father of lies’. If you find yourself in a battle for your true identity, I encourage you to meditate on the scriptures listed below. Satan has no chance when you challenge His lies with God’s truth.
