This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT
What I say determines who I am! If I say that I am a loser, I am a loser. If I say I can’t do it, I can’t. If I say I am a failure, I will fail.
How we identify ourselves will determine our identity. When we speak negatively of ourselves, our minds will work to create that identity. Subconsciously, my entire being will work to align my identity with what I declare about myself.
That is why it is crucial to declare, “I am who God says I am. I can do what God says I can do.”
Today, I choose to declare that I am a new person in Christ. Everything of my old life is gone, and I have a new life in and through Jesus. I am a new creation created in the image of Christ. My old habits, hang-ups, and hurts do not control me because I am a new person. Daily, I am being transformed into the image of Christ.
