I believe with proper identity we side step many of the snares of the enemy.
Removing the ambiguity of our collective identity creates a continuity that alligns us as a people that can facilitate autonomy. When ignorance is replaced with knowledge we gain a footing to build plans based off of vision. With proper identity we submit to wisdom and nurture purpose. Identity cultivates prosperity and reveals our inadequacies.
Every structure is only as good as its foundation.
You are the product of your upbringing and bloodline so if your father was not present and you were given false information or are ignorant of your lineage your foundation is unstable.
If you were indoctrinated into scripture with malice intent and with manipulation as to keep you subjected and inferior than your faith is founded in half truths thus it is built on a corrupt foundation.
Identity is your distinguishing characteristic.
Culture and heritage establishes your identity.
Culture is how you glorify your God and heritage is what has been passed down by belief and or bloodline. When you have removed what hinders you from seeing who you are and why you are, you can identify what is true. Your persisting entity is how you are known or what you continue in firmly is what makes you distinct. To stay the course in spite of difficulty or failure is what defines your existence or defines your IDENTITY.
Let go of what this world has presented as identity and accept the characteristics by which you will definitively be known as…accept the truth of who God says that you are.
