2 Corin 5:17 FAITH then becomes critical if we want to live that NEW LIFE God prepared ahead of time. We cannot allow our past to rob us of our new life. We must believe what God says about us! We're not who others say we are AND we're not who the devil says we are! We are who GOD says we are!! In order to rob us of our new life and purpose, the devil will first lie about our identity and then rob our purpose. The devil says, "you're an addict." God says, "Whom the Lord sets free, is free indeed." The devil says, "you're a loser, in marriage; business or ministry." God says, "You're more than a conqueror!" The devil will then lie about our purpose. The devil says, "there's no hope for you." God says, "If you believe, ALL things are possible." The devil says, "you are destined for failure." God says, " I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you a hope and a future".....Jer 29:11. The devil will always lie about your new identity and your new purpose in Christ. Take time in prayer today and seek the Lord's heart. He already has a plan and a purpose specifically for you. Don't listen to the lies of the enemy, trust God in FAITH, and believe Him to walk in victory!
