Who do you think you are? It can be a question of self-accusation, or an entry point into a new level of confidence in your identity in Christ. Every challenge you face to your true identity in Christ can be your entry point to a new level of relationship with Him, and a discovery of who you really are because of that.
Your true identity will never manifest from a place of fear. Only in the place of perfect love. Identity and destiny are both relational and functional, just let relationship take the lead.
