Hello reader. You’ve been longing for another post on my blog right?😁. Here it is.👇👇👇
On a faithful day, I was sitting at the balcony of my house and some questions came to my mind and I couldn’t get exact answers to them and this made me questioned some young and old about who they are, their identity, how sure they have an identity and what their potentials are. Some of the answers I got were quite funny,😁😁 thoughtful and eye-opening😱.
These are questions we need to sincerely ask ourselves as an individual. They are self check questions that we don’t need to answer in a haste. Join me as I share my views on these questions.
Who Are You?
Hmmmm. If I’m to answer this question when I was five year old, I will just say that “I’m Okikiola Solaja” and this is the answer most of us will give when we were asked. Now, when I am asked same question, the answers I’ll give will be more than what I gave when was five year old because behind my name lies who I truly am. We need to know what is embedded or deposited in us as an individual and this explains that we are who we are because of God and that we do everything with God by our sides which makes us exhibit them to HIS glory.
What Is Your Identity?
Some of us might not take our identity serious as we supposed to. See, Identity is a very deep thing. It is what people see when they see you. The above question is what you cannot answer all by yourself because who you see in the mirror can’t actually depict or reflect who you are.
For example, an identity card entails someone’s name, sex, date of birth, height, address etc. Your own identity is far beyond these things, when we see ourselves, what do we see or what do people see cause there many things to call an identity and that’s if you’re determined to figure it out.
The Bible makes us to understand in 1Peter 2:9, Matthew 5:13-14 that we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people and that we are the salt of the earth and light of the world. This gives us the insight about our identity in God.
How Are You Sure You Have an Identity?
There must be an assurance of your identity. People telling you things they feel, see or know about you isn’t enough reason that you have what is called an Identity. The tangible reason is that God has said a lot of things about you even before it was Forseen by man and in the process, certain things started changing and manifesting.
What Are Your Potentials?
Many people see potentials as gifts, talents e.t.c but it is more than that. Potential can be seen as opportunities we’ve judiciously used and not the ones that have come that we’ve wasted. A potential that is not properly utilized,developed and implemented is not a potential. A potential that doesn’t last long is also not a potential. Let’s discover our potentials and make good use of them for the glory of God.
Having read what this post entails, I urge y’all to give ourselves a discovery and rethink on the above highlighted and discussed questions. I pray these discoveries will spring forth greatness in our lives in Jesus name.
