label maker

What label are you wearing?

I don’t mean literally like lululemon, Guess or Roots, but rather the sort of labels you associate with yourself, on the inside…

For years, I wore the label victim.
As many who have been physically or emotionally assaulted, or swindled and taken advantage of in any way can relate, you can fall into thinking of yourself as a victim.

Poor me.
Why does this always happen to me?

Or the label someone spoke over you, that you decided to wear because you took their word for it…

Unattractive, ugly, homely.
Loser, dummy, stupid.
Lost cause, black sheep, not worth it.
Weak, poor, failure.
Deserted, abandoned, unwanted.
Broken, beat up,
waste of time.

Although we can all have moments when each of these words could apply, they are and were never meant to define us, or be worn by us.

They are the enemy’s clothing…

Because He knows our true value and worth, he tries to do his best to cover up our true light, our true selves with his mudslinging.

We were never meant to wear anything but God’s intended covering…Himself.

God reminds us over and over in His Word who we really are to Him, when we look at ourselves from His point of view….

His Beloved (Jeremiah 11:3)
Child of God (1 John 3:1)
Heaven’s Poetry (Ephesians 2:10)
Whole in Christ (Colossians 2:10)
Forgiven (1 Peter 2:24)
Never Alone (Deuteronomy 31:8)
An Exquisite Fragrance (2 Corinthians 2:15)
Free (Galatians 5:1)
God’s Workmanship (Ephesians 2:10)
Overcomer (Revelations 12:11)
Greatly Loved by God (Romans 1:7, Ephesians 2:4, Colossians 3:12, 1 Thesselonians 1:4)
Valued (Matthew 6:25-34)

And God doesn’t stop there.

Besides revealing who we really are in the Word, God also gives us His armor, shield, helmet & sword to protect us from these enemy attempts to cloak us in darkness.

We are not to be defined by our enemy’s reaction to who God says we are.

Who He designed us to be.

When Truth speaks, we need to claim it, proclaim it, and release it deep into our lives. Then we will begin to believe it, and let it become part of us.

Its time to remove the counterfeit labels off of your life, and let your true self shine.

Clothe yourselves in Him.
Let Him be your cover.

The One True Label Maker
is waiting to give you a new makeover.
And it will be a perfect fit.

  2. Thanks James.
    Words have a power over us, so if they’re negative ones they can hinder us from living fully.
    Here’s to positive labels only and a greater love for God!
