Who are you?

How do you feel when asked that question? Do you have a ready answer? Is it name, rank, and serial number? Do you answer the question with your occupation, residence, or schooling? Are you confident in your answer of who you are?

Perhaps you feel unsure of how to answer, or feel defensive by the question; maybe fearful of revealing yourself wondering how they will respond once they know you.

To be confident in knowing who you are is connected with knowing Whose you are. If you are a follower of Jesus, your confidence is in Him. Jeremiah 17:7-8 says, “but blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.

By having the Holy Spirit living inside you, you receive the living water of Jesus (the stream) that is never ending. You will flourish no matter what “heat” may arise in your life. You can be confident in all things, because your confidence is in God, Who is in you.

Hebrews 4:16 says that we can approach God’s throne in confidence, because we know that we are His, and He loves us totally. Even when we struggle, God is ready to give us His mercy and grace at the throne.

Walk confidently with your head up for you are the son or daughter of the Creator of the universe. He will never leave you nor forsake you. So be confident that you will never leave home without Him. And if someone asks you who you are, just smile confidently knowing that this may be an opportunity to introduce your Dad.

So true! This is a wonderful, sweet devotional and I love the last line best!

This was good - it might make it a little more personal though by adding a personal example towards the beginning. Just a thought:)

Nice devotional! I would have loved to have you expand on this - maybe add a personal example or anecdote just for an extra punch. Nicely done.

I've always like the Jeremiah verse. I like the way you put this line, "So be confident that you will never leave home without Him." Thanks!

Good sharp devotional statement.

Thank you for the straight forward approach to this topic. Most of us avoided this method of writing about confidence feeling it was too predictable. We took the cute approach as opposed to straight talk. Salvation as well as confidence almost always comes directly from God's word. Your writing is as solid as your message.
