Our identities in Christ are reality. Who you are in Christ is the truth of who you are! You’ll hear “I am…” statements in four categories. Listen today. Listen tomorrow. Listen until you can’t forget!
You’ll hear it’s because of who Christ is and what he did on the cross for you, that you are enough. You are enough because Christ is enough. And when we believe in him, we are given the gift of his identity. I explain why we don’t allow the lies the enemy says to replay in our mind over and over again.

“The enemy is after your heart, your soul and your mind. He distorts the truth and tells you lies, lies that we accept as truth such as, “I’m not enough. I can’t do it. I am not worthy. I am unloved. I am so ashamed. I am a failure.” These lies are then on repeat in our head and we’ve listened to them for so long that we believe them and accept them as truth. If we believe the lie that we are not enough, we are then going to operate and behave in ways so that we self-fulfill that prophecy and continuously are never enough.” – Katrina
We must reclaim the truth of our identity in Christ.
Are we going to believe the lies of the enemy or the truth as stated by God?
In my blogpost, “3 Reasons We Fail to Reach Our Goals (and How to Fix It!)”, I talk about how vitally important it is to make sure that our identity lines up with our goals for our life and our health in order to help us to actually achieve our goals.
But then the next question comes and it’s…
“What is my identity?”
Our identities should not be based upon what we or people around us say we are, but who God says that we are.
When you know and embrace who you are in Christ, you can then become the person that God made you to be.
Listen, there is a war raging in the heavenlies.
The enemy is after your heart, your soul, and your mind. He distorts the truth and tells you lies, lies that we accept as truth such as,
- “I’m not enough.”
- “I can’t do it.”
- “I am not worthy.”
- “I am unloved.”
- “I am so ashamed”.
- “I am a failure.”
These lies are then on repeat in our minds and we’ve listened to them for so long that we believe them and accept them as truth.
If we believe the lie that we are not enough, we are then going to operate and behave in ways so that we self-fulfill that prophecy and continuously are never enough.
The reality is you are not enough.
This is why we needed a savior.
It’s because of who Christ is and what he did on the cross for you, that you are enough.
You are enough because Christ is enough. And when we believe in him, we are given the gift of his identity.
Our identity in Christ is a gift.
Listen, if you continue to believe the lies, you will never experience the abundant life that Christ has freely given you.
So have you replaced those lies that are in your head with the truth of who you are, according to what the Bible says? You have the power to conquer these lies by knowing who you are in Christ and claiming it.
When you realize the power of your true identity, you can shed the burdens of your past. You can stand against the evil schemes and become the person that Christ empowers you to be. You must reclaim the truth of your identity in Christ.
Reclaim the truth of your identity.
It is time to live in your true identity. We’re going to start that here!
