I. Who am I really? What am I here for?
The answer to these questions was given before we were born
We were created for a purpose and we have been identified with Christ
Labels are used to identify. God has labeled us and Satan has tried to cover it up since birth. Jeremiah 1:5 - Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations
Satan has used many people who are led by their flesh to give us a wrong image
We are made in the image of God but that mirror has been fogged over by lies
If a lie is heard often enough about ourselves (29 times) we begin to receive it as our identity
Lies open doors for the spirit of self-rejection, self-hatred, sabotage, condemnation, unforgiveness, and an unloving spirit
We as counselors deal with flesh problems and spiritual problems
The flesh tends to line up with the Spirit. The Spirit is formed by belief
We have a lot of work to do as ministers of the Gospel to re-establish the true identity of the body of Christ
Most sinful and harmful actions are a result of false beliefs
Pray for your counselee to get a revelation of who they really are as seen by God
Sin is conquered through revelation of God’s will more than self-will
A changed identity results in the fruit of changed behavior
