If your life isn’t what you want it to be, it may be because you’re telling yourself the wrong story. You are not the mistakes you’ve made. You are not the labels put on you by other people. You are who God says you are. Anything less is false humility. If you want to change your life, start by changing your story.
Abraham thought he was too old. Jeremiah thought he was too young. Moses thought he was unqualified. Joseph thought he was overqualified. Gideon had an inferiority complex. Jonah had a superiority complex. Peter made too many mistakes. Nathanael was too cool for school. Paul had a thorn in the flesh. And King David was the runt of the litter.
None of that matters! Who you are is not the issue. What really matters is whose you are. You are God’s workmanship. You are more than a conqueror, and nothing can change that. It is what it is; it is who you are. The significance of that truth is this: no one can take your place. No one can worship God like you or for you. No one can serve others like you or for you.
