So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who relies on it
will never be stricken with panic.”
Identity is so important. What are you first and foremost? Is it defined by a role or a relationship? I think our identity (whether we can admit to it or not) is found in where we place our ultimate security.
How can you identify where you put your security? The answer lies in knowing what you fear. A job loss, death of a family member, loss of independence? Each of those can chip away at your “God security” when it is perceived to be vulnerable. Begin to place your hopes and dreams in Christ by orienting your life more towards your relationship with Him. Let Him be your all in all.
