In the blog titled ‘Re-born Identity’, we established Christ being the Crown that entitles us as Kings and Queens on earth. In this blog, we aim to investigate the place of our Crown (Christ) in our lives. A lot of us live in the hype of our identity in Christ rather than in the fullness thereof. This is likely the result of a lack of understanding of what it means to be a King and a Queen in Christ.
Throughout generations, one of the core factors to the rising chaos in our world has been identity crisis. The world is a collection of societies. Societies are made up of individuals/families. Identity crisis occurs when individuals pursue to fit in the mould of the world to satisfy their lack of sense of belonging within these societies. According to social psychologists, the need to belong all boils down to survival. Those suffering from this crisis desperately seek a clearer sense of self and an acceptable role in society. Now, for those of us who are in Christ, we know we have found our everlasting belonging in God. As a result, we can IDENTIFY ourselves with the things of God instead of this lost world.
If you haven’t already read my testimony, I suggest you read it to better understand the content of this post.
God first placed it on my heart to go to Ethiopia in December 2014 and I was DEFINITELY not pleased with this particular conviction. All I felt was pain moving in my veins due to the trauma of my childhood experience. For quite some time, I refused to believe it was a God idea and I rebuked it. I was intensely upset and I believed that God would never consider to take me back to a place where I had the worst experience of my life.
