Why is there a need to know about our kingdom identity? Our identity in Him is the foundation on which the purpose of our existence – our God-given assignment, stands.
I John 3:1a says, “See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are.” We are God’s beloved sons and daughters. We are born of the Spirit and we are God’s children, bought and redeemed by the blood of Jesus. We need to know who we are and whose we are, both are inseparable aspects of our identity.
The right understanding of our identity aligns us rightly with the Kingdom of God. When we align to His will, we are released and empowered to do our kingdom assignment. Our freedom to do what we have been designed to be and to do on this earth flow from our kingdom identity. What we do for Him comes from the overflow of who we are in Him. Thus, our BEING comes first before our DOING.
It is alignment first before the assignment. Our identity qualifies and positions us to receive and experience the fullness of the glorious spiritual inheritance made available by the Father in Christ. Anchoring our identity in the finished work of Jesus positions us in authority, power and the divine ability to execute the judgment written over the enemy two thousand years ago. When we come in complete agreement with what He has made us to be – His dear children through what Jesus paid for on the Cross, then we will be able to live victoriously, far above limitations and fear.
We walk in freedom and victory with consistency and progressively enabled by His grace to accomplish our heavenly assignment here on earth. We will fulfill our task to expand His Kingdom, destroy the works of the enemy, and bring the reality of His heaven here on earth with all passion and courage.
