What’s the secret to becoming a secure, happy adult? Simply, know and live to your identity. Understand who you are. So … who and whose are you? What is your identity? As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, you are—God’s Beloved Child, Redeemed, Adopted, Chosen, Accepted, Precious, Forgiven, Justified, Sealed … Complete! To understand and live to our identities yields the assurance of total completion as a person, free from having to prove our worth or find our value in anyone or anything. We can rest, content, in who we are in Christ. But contentment is not a feeling—it’s a choice we make to be satisfied in whatever life situation God gives us. Whether single, married, divorced, physically handicapped, or financially challenged, are you content with who you are in Christ? If you aren’t, consider your God-given identity. Reconsider who you are to the Maker of the Universe.
Philippians 4:12 NIV
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
1 Peter 2:9-10 NIV
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
