“You Are Not What You Are Going Through”
In a society that often encourages people to define others by their circumstances or by what they may be going through, we, as believers, must remain confident in who God says that we are.
Also, it is very important that as children of God we understand who we are not. We will not allow others to define us by what we may be going through; nor will we allow the adversary to convince us to define ourselves by what we may be going through.
Mark 5:1-9 (NKLV) Mark 5:1-
Then they came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gadarenes. And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains, because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones.
When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him. And he cried out with a loud voice and said, “What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me.”
For He said to him, “Come out of the man, unclean spirit!” 9 Then He asked him, “What is your name?”
And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion; for we are many.”
