Kas tu esi Kristū un par ko tu vari kļūt Viņā

Who you are in Christ and who you can become in Him

I welcome each of you on this new day which the Lord has graced us to see. Today God wants to share with us His Word of wisdom. God’s wisdom is capable of changing our lives and dispelling our darkness. God is more focused on who you are in Christ and who you can become in Him, rather than who you are in the past. However, the devil and people who operate out of his nature often focus on your past and identify you with your failures and weakness in life. They identify you more with your weaknesses, defeats and failures, rather than with your successes, possibilities and your potential. One of the reasons why God often changed names of people in bible is because He believes in your potential and in your future more than your past and your failures. For example, He changed Simons name to Peter, He changed Jacob Name to Israel, He changed Abram’s name to Abraham and so on. God wants you to believe today that in Christ Jesus you have been given a NEW NAME. You have identified with your old names, your past and failures long enough.God has given you new name in Christ, so stop wearing the old name tag given to you by people, by the enemy of your soul or by your circumstances. Believe in the wonderful possibilities available to you now in God because of your new identity in Christ. Begin to identify yourself with your God given name! Only thus will you be able to realize your potential in God. Follow the example of Jabez who refused to identify himself with illness and weakness, but rather enlarged his coast because he sought for new identity in God. 
“And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. {Jabez: that is, Sorrowful}  And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested” (1 Chronicle 4: 10).
 Jabez covets the blessings of God and prayed his way out of limitation. He didn’t allow the circumstances surrounding his birth (his past) to limit his potential in life. As a result of that, God has blessed him and has enlarged his coast. Start aspiring God’s blessings in your life also and enlarge your coast by identifying with your new image in Christ. Find time today to sincerely reflect who you are in the Christ, who you can become in Christ, and what you can do through faith in Jesus Name. That way you will soon see that there is no limitation to your growth and development in this life. In Christ, all things are possible for you! Just like Paul, you can boldly say 
 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”(Philippians 4:13).
 Remember that 
“… if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
 Remind yourself throughout the day that you have been given a new status, new possibility and new destiny in the Christ and keep thanking God for this. This is God’s desire for you today! May your day be filled with victories and blessings from the Lord! See you tomorrow! Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
