The greatest thing I can do for a person is inspire them to have the passion to learn their Identity, their Purpose and their Value.
These three things are most important in a person’s life.
Knowing your identity let’s you realize who you are and takes away the enemy’s ability to have you stumbling through life, searching for yourself keeping you in a wilderness of confusing, because you will find yourself patterning your character behavior personality after other people.
Knowing who you are, brings a inner peace and security, because no matter who you come in contact with, you won’t change yourself, or adjust your personality to fit their image of what they perceive about you, based on their limited observation of you.
People have a habit of trying to pull other people into their perception of how they think a person should be.
Knowing your purpose lets you set goals concerning what you need to do in life to accomplish it.
This helps to establish the direction that your life needs to go and gives you a foundation to build from.
When you know why you were born and the reason for your existence, it takes away the power of the enemy to have you making mistakes or doing things that won’t give substance to your life.
You won’t waste valuable time engaging in things that may be good but not necessary beneficial to what you were designed to do.
Knowing purpose gives you the ability to make the precise chooses for your accomplishments to be successful.
Everybody has a purpose and often we waste years pursuing something that we don’t have the passion for our a true desire to be or do because we often based our lifestyle on the things that society says is successful.
We enter jobs, get married, start ministries etc., because we see somebody else succeed in that area, instead of pursuing what we have a inner desire to do.
Children often enter careers because their parents are in it, instead of finding the purpose that makes them happy for their life.
We often, even in ministry, pursue a path that seems popular but not purposeful for us.
Knowing our purpose keeps us from ending up unsatisfied and wandering aimlessly in careers and other decisions that alter our life and lifestyle.
Knowing our value about ourselves keeps the enemy from being able to bring us to accepting behavior toward us that lowers our self worth and self esteem.
When you know your value you won’t allow anything to bring you to a lower estate then who ABBA has made you to be.
Knowing your true worth keeps your confidence within yourself at a level that is not shaken by the words and actions of other people.
Finding our value helps us to overcome those harmful and hurtful situations that can cause us to look at ourselves as less than who we are.
Knowing your value takes away the enemy ability to make you accept the abuse of others and to allow the opinion of people to break down your confidence.
Understanding your worth gives you the drive & confidence to accomplish anything you set out to do.
It gives you the assurance that says I Cannot Fail, or I Don’t Have To Accept This Behavior.
I learnt years ago not to be shaken by those who could not see the value of me.
Sometimes even now, people will walk out my life or say something about me, thinking they are going to break me or hurt me, only to be astonished because I won’t let their opinion of me lower who I am.
Often people of self confidence are accused of being arrogant and prideful, especially when they don’t adjust their personality to another person’s opinion of them.
I always say to people, “I’m not changing whom I have been formed to be, just because you’re uncomfortable with me.”
Too many times we devalue ourselves so that we can make others happy, while we live in misery, because we can’t be who we are.
People, never let somebody make you diminish your value, just because they are not willing to accept it.
These three areas are very important to build in a person life.
Getting them to know who they are, why they are, and how much they are worth, will take them into the purpose and destiny of their life and they won’t wander endlessly trying to find who they are why they are and what they contribute to life.
