The creator of a thing knows the purpose of a thing. Knowing who God says you are and acting like who he says you are is a key to peace and maturity.
When Jesus began his public ministry it started with his cousin, John the Baptist, declaring that Jesus was the prophet of whom all prophets had been waiting for. After John baptized Jesus in the Jordan river, God spoke through the sky saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased”.
Jesus received confirmation of who he was in two different ways, but from the same creator. When Jesus went into the desert for forty days he was tempted by the Devil and his self-knowledge of who he was is what prepared him to deny the powerful temptations of Satan.
Do you know who you are? If not, then get to know Jesus and he will tell you who you are made to be.
Scripture references: Matthew 3:13-17, 4:1-11
