(continuing on previous post)
The believers started to grow in their relationship with Christ. That meant that they knew what God said about them in His word and that is crucial. The reason why they must know that their identity lies in Christ, is for when the devil tries to attack their character, that they can stand in the identity and authority given by Christ. With their identity being set in Christ, the devil was scared for them. Why? because he knows how mighty God is and that they are walking in the authority given by God unto them.
Therefor remain in that authority given by God, because every step you take closer to God and the more you walk in His will, the more the devil will try to attack you with lies. The reason for the attack will be to confuse you and deceive you into not following your calling in God.
You’re His people and He cares for you. Your identity and authority lies in Him.
