Genesis 1:27

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

One afternoon while working as an admissions counselor, a co-worker began to read to a couple of us an article on President Obama's daughter. This whole article talked about how his daughter got an excellent internship in NYC. All of us sitting around began to think the same thing you're thinking...Of course, she got the internship! She's the president's daughter! 

Let's be honest, she probably wasn't the most qualified for that internship, but because she knew her identity there was no way she wasn't going to get offered that position.

I then began to think, "Wait a second, my father is the creator of the universe!"

So why is it that the president's daughter is a "shoe in" for the internship while so many Christians aren't getting their desired position? Christians are the most qualified! We have the Holy Spirit living in us, we are equipped with all the wisdom and knowledge we will ever need!

The reason why so many Christians aren't "getting the internship" is because they don't know their identity. They don't know their last name. Christians don't realize who their father is {Galatians 3:26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus}. President Obama's daughter had no doubt who she was, she put her name on her resume. She knew she was going to get the job. She had confidence in the name her father gave her.

We are children of the most high king! We need to know our identity or the thief will come in and steal what has been rightfully given to us by our Father.

"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly" John 10:10
