Who Are You Identifying With?

What are you identifying with?
How many times have you said "my sickness"? How many times have you said "my debt"? "My problem"?
When you say these things, you are identifying with your problems. You are owning them.
If the Word is true, and we know it is, then Jesus said in John 10:10, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
James stated that every good and perfect gift is from above (James 1:17).
The author of your problems, your sickness, your money trouble is not God. It is satan. When you identify with those problems, you are agreeing with the devil.
The power of agreement (Matthew 18:19) is so strong that if you agree with the devil, you will solidify those problems in your life.
However, God says that you and your problems are not one in the same. He says that you are seated in heavenly places. He says you are a king and a priest and have authority over your problems. If you agree with what God says, then you will solidify your victory instead of your defeat.
Who are you identifying with?
Choose to be on the winning team. Choose to identify with God and what He says about you.
